They give you very good advice for tours and some tips for your safety inside the hostel and out in the city. The lodging service includes delicious breakfasts. The hostel has fan and air conditioners (40 ° heat...

Great stay here for the Rio Olympics. The location is awesome; a few minutes from the beach and very safe. Staff are very friendly, making an effort to get to know you and help with any questions - the nicest I've met at any hostel!

Fantastic hostel, I just loved my time there. The staff go out of their way to help in every way - booking trips, advising on transport, even helping me fill in a complicated Brazilian form.

I stayed here for 2 weeks during carnival in January and I had an amazing time. The staff are super helpful and friendly. The on site bar is a great place to chill out in the evening before going out, with reasonable drinks prices. The Hostal is ideally located 5 min walk to copacabana beach. The rooms are cleaned daily...

Yes the rooms are 12 bunks a piece and the bathroom small but the atmosphere and family feel is amazing. Good space for communal activity and a decent kitchen, good location and lots of events going on. I really loved my stay and want to go back!

Neighbourhood 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.
