The thing that makes a hostel in my personal experience of more than 10 months travelling is the people that welcome you at first then continue to make your stay enjoyable. The staff here are incredible, not one of the staff or some, but ALL of them. Down to the bartender and the cleaners. Everyone has been happy to help... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
