My boyfriend and I ended up coming from another hostel, we stayed over the weekend and the vibe was amazing, people from everywhere hanging out and going out together. Great place to meet people and easy access to all the main attractions

Great place, near everything, excellent organization, very clean, they have a wonderful crew, and the food & drinks are delicius. I really recommend the optional breakfast, it worths it!!! They also have lots of tours and parties, and the price is better than buying that stuff outside. I´ve spent a great time there. I´ll be back!!!

Not a really good experience, too crowd and far too expensive on the days near christmas. Bathrooms were usually dirty and the place is too small for the amount of people that has inside. Really hot and even there is air conditioning, every morning we woke up and it was turned off.

Staying in Copacabana

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.
