At first glance, Piratas may not seem like much. However, don't let its looks deceive you! Piratas offers the absolute best experience you will find in Rio. To start with, location is everything. Ipanema beach is literally 1/2 block away, and Copacabana is just a few short blocks in the other direction. Piratas provides you with a bracelet for a FREE chair and umbrella on the beach (and with the Brazilian sun, you will definitely be thankful!). It is super convenient to head down to the beach at any point during the day, and then come home to shower and head out on your next adventure. The house offers fun activities every night of the week, from Beer-B-Q's and Caipirinha mix-offs, to nights out in Lapa and Favela Funk parties. Brian is probably hands-down the greatest host you will ever meet, and he will ensure you have a great time during your stay. He arranges everything and always lets you know what is on the schedule for the week. Very laid back and easy going, a great sense of humor. Though the house is not the cleanest or fanciest place you will ever stay, the point of visiting Rio is to SEE RIO, not to just hang out in the hostel for your stay. This provides you with a cheap place to sleep, so you have more money to enjoy the rest of your vacation. Besides, at the very least, it will provide you with great stories to tell to people back home, and everyone loves a great story. Another plus? Orfeo is the best dog ever, and if you give him a coconut he will be your best friend for life. Also, a little monkey sometimes frequents the property. What other hostel/hotel can say THAT?
I have stayed here twice and plan to return for the World Cup. I can't imagine staying anywhere else! If you're not afraid to have a good time, definitely stay here. You won't regret it!
