“Good time at Bamboo”
Reviewed December 29, 2008

We stayed twice at Hostel Bamboo and we really enjoied our stay.
Hostel is located 5 minute walking from Copacabana beach near the tunnel for Ipanema.
Bus stops are near the property and the underground is close as well.
We booked a private room and it was clean, new, with tv and air conditioned.
The second time we went there the air conditioned was limited, only after 6 pm, this was due to guests who left the A/C on, even when they were outside!
Common spaces were good but the pool's water was really dirty, but this was not a problem in my opinion, in Rio there are miles of beach for a refreshing pause!!
No security problem in the narrow street where Bamboo is located, someone of the staff is always there to control.
Rio de Janeiro is an amazing city and if we come back one day we will stay at Bamboo Hostel again.
