Che Lagarto santa Clara was the first ensuite hostel! It was amazing! Always clean, Magalee and Victor made my stay! They are always helping everyone! Copacabana is the most traditional neighbourhood in town and they have absolutely everything, shops, metro, restaurants, beach only few blocks of distance! The bed...the bed was amazing, big and comfortable!

I was a bit nervous flying into Rio during the world cup but the guys made my stay very comfortable (thanks Margarit, Victor, Joe!) . They organised an airport pick up, gave us information for where to go out at night , booked us the favela tour (a must see) and answered any other queries we had. The double room...

My partner and I stayed in a double room with a private bathroom. We booked a transfere from the airport to the hostel, which was slightly more expensive than getting a taxi, but we felt it was worth it, as it takes the hassle out of traveling somewhere you've never been before. We arrived very early, and our room wasnt...

We stayed here twice in our travels through Brazil and enjoyed our stay both times. The beds are comfy and the water is hot. Breakfast is nice and the staff are very helpful and friendly. They stored our main luggage for us while we went to Buzios for the weekend. We had a late flight on the day we left...

Nice hostel for couples, quiet and not too many partying people. Breakfast was simple but good. Double room were very large, clean and comfortable. We felt very safe in the area and went out on foot mostly.

Nice hostel on a shady, tree-lined street. About 10 minutes from Copacabana beach, and bars and restaurants are close. Clean rooms, good breakfast and the staff were super friendly and helpfull, especially Victor! We had a late flight out of Rio, they provided towels and use of shower even though we had already checked out.

I thought this place was alright. I thought it was safe and clean. I thought the staff were very nice. I am not really sure what the negative reviews are all about. I would stay here again. It is a good value.

Room Small private twin was clean, well furnished and came with flat screen TV. Wifi only available in reception. Towels could be hired. Shared bathroom Clean Service Very helpful staff made a room available after Hotels.com failed to communicate our booking. Fantastic photographic memory of bus routes which proved very helpful.

We had no idea we'd be staying during the Rock In Rio festival. Obviously when we looked for hostels a day before getting to rio, the city was packed. We could find only one hostel called casa6ipanema for the first night and then 3 more nights we found at che lagarto santa clara. The reviews were fine but not great...

These rooms have been recently remodelled and are clean and tidy. We stayed on the ground floor beside the kitchen which was ridiculously noisy, at least it was only for a night! The breakfast was nothing but the staff were friendly! Very small rooms but close to the beach. The shower is difficult to navigate and I had a cold...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
