I stayed in this hostel for 2 weeks and overall the stay was average and you get what you pay for. The staff were very average and you could tell they just didn't want to be there but it was alright. The rooms were okay, just a place to rest your head but the air con turns off throughout the day so is like a sauna if you go in it throughout the day. Breakfast is very limited and simple. Location is alright and relatively close to the beach and shops etc however you do have to walk up a very big hill. I wouldn't stay here again if I came back to Rio but it's alright for a couple of nights to get your bearings.

Hi,

Thanks for your review !

The air conditioning is connected by a central, most of the guests stay the day outside the hostel. Therefore the air condition is switched off during the day to save energy and help the environment, however, it is possible to request the reception to turn on.

We are always prioritizing the quality of customer service and hope to see you next time =D

Cheers,

Cabana Copa

We've arrived early in the morning and after few minutes we've been accommodated, despite it was about 6 hours before check-in time.

The hostel has chill, backpacker atmosphere.

Room was clean and spacious. Inside you can find lockers for your valuable things.

The staff will help you with organizing tours and answer all questions.

Hi Sandra =D

We are always improving the quality of service.
Most of the time has a manager to help you in some team failure by the issue of high movement. Sorry if what happened has caused some negative feedback from the team.

About coffee we are improving every day to bring the best for you.

We miss you!

Hugs,

Cabana Copa

Anna is an excellent receptionist and makes incredible Caipirinhas!
They have been extremely helpful with my stay and giving advice on things to see and do while in Rio de Janeiro.
Definitely a place I'd come back to!

This was one of the first hostels we stayed in during pre-carnival in Rio. The hostel was quite securely located as all cars and vans had to pass through security barriers before being allowed in and the hostel itself was always locked. We felt safe there which was really important considering this was our first time in Brazil. It was roughly 10 minutes from copacabana beach and right across from the metro station. The hostel itself was relatively clean and air conditioning worked well at night. The only thing I could say is that the atmosphere was quite lacking which was surprising given the time of year. There was a bar and activities advertised for every night but I never once seen any of these activities or events happen I.e. Boat parties, pub crawls etc. Staff did not seem to mention this either! I guess if you are looking for a quieter hostel for a couple of nights this would do fine.

Hi Maxine,

Thanks for the review !


Unfortunately we don't have a place to hold parties inside the hostel, however, we have very good partners with good parties.


The advertisement of the events can be found on all murals through the hostel and in the frontdesk.

We hope to see you again

Best Regards

Cabana Copa
