In a good location. Copacabana and Ipanema is a quick walk away. Very good prices but you get what you pay for. Mediocre bed. Awful linen. Luke warm shower. Sad old towels. Noise levels were just too much for me. I understand it's a hostel...More
Good and cheap place to stay, is close to the beach and the center of Copacabana.
Is a good option for those who like to just crash and spend the night.

I was stupid enough to think they had been rid of the bed bugs they had a month and a half earlier in another room. Even asked them and they claimed to be clean. Not the case. Furthermore, when it rains outdoors, it rains indoors...More
This hostel is a great experience, you can walk to the beach easily, and you’re also near a safe favela which shows you some true Rio culture! The beds are a good size too and there’s plenty of space in the common room and bar.More

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.
