Awesome Staff, cheapest, good location, good atmosphere although the music is too loud to speak. Not enough plugs: 15 beds but almost no plug in the (new) room!!! A lot of broken stuff: cold water, plugs, LOCKERS (brocken or can't lock because the hole isn't aligned) No recycling! Too much email spam for rating it here!

This hostel surprised me in a positive way. Bedrooms are clean, staff is friendly and there are several activities that estimulates friendship between the tourists. It offers many amazing day trips. It's possible to cook in the kitchen and at night, there's a really cool bar inside. The caipirinhas are so great!

I had a great time in this place since the minute I arrived. Staff is really welcoming and helpful, breakfast was good and all the toilets and rooms were spotless. They also organize tours around the city which makes you safe time. Beaches are really close, you can put your flips flops and you'll be in Copacabana beach in 5... More

This hostel is incredibly cheap. There is a reason for that. Several of the bathrooms were out of order, and the rooms were dirty with broken air con in 42C heat. Some of the staff were lovely but several were rude and spent most of their time on their phones. They also played loud and obnoxious bass music until well... More

We arrived at this hostel to be given a different room to one that we had paid for - without a bathroom in our room as we had requested. The room itself was dirty and the sheets damp - and the shared hostel bathrooms were not clean and with no hote after. We checked out promptly the following morning !

I really enjoyed my stay at "el misti hostels e pousadas". The Staff was really friendly, the breakfast was the best I had for a long time (bread, toaster, cheese, ham, mortadella, different fruits, cake, cereals...) and the location is very good to get to all the nice places in Rio! Bar prices are fair and there are organised Parties... More

We had no water (for a shower, to flush the toilet etc) for the first day which in 35 degree heat is very inconvenient and the staff were not very helpful or apologetic. The hostel is good for people who just want to party but the dorms are busy in the early hours and it makes it difficult to sleep.... 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.
