El misti rio was incredible, by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff were amazing, helpful and very welcoming. The hostel itself is very clean and comfortable with great facilities and a friendly atmosphere. The location is perfect as well, being a 5 minute walk from the beach and close to a ton of local restaurants and...

I was pleased with this hostel. The staff members were very helpful. The meals they offer were a good price and good tasting. They had a bar at night, where they make really good caiphis, convenient location, close to the beach and attractions. The lockers were big, and the room clean. I enjoyed the stay.

We stayed in Rio for 10 days in two different hostels. This one was the best one, good breakfast, clean, and amazing location. The staff is always playing good music, and they answered all my questions with an smile in there faces. The barman is also always smiling.

I stayed there two nights to look for a more upscale place directly on spot. This hostel is loud, sometimes cold and in some respect even dirty (no soaps on the toilets!). Bring earplugs and sanitizer (you should have those at any hostel by the way) and you will find an excellent place to start a trip and get to...

Dear guest, Thanks for review us. It is the first time we have a negative 1/5 comment, made it before the stay. As it is publicly stated in our web sites and, in order to guarantee our quality standards, we need at least 48 hours to book the airport transfers. We are not use to deal with potential blackmail reviews,...

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.
