Great location a little up a hill but close to Copacabana and Ipanema Beach and many shopping and dining options, and really great staff willing to help with everything and with good breakfast options for a hostel! Clean, comfy and cute!

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
