Great stay here for the Rio Olympics. The location is awesome; a few minutes from the beach and very safe. Staff are very friendly, making an effort to get to know you and help with any questions - the nicest I've met at any hostel!

Yes the rooms are 12 bunks a piece and the bathroom small but the atmosphere and family feel is amazing. Good space for communal activity and a decent kitchen, good location and lots of events going on. I really loved my stay and want to go back!

It's one of the best hostels in my years of traveling around the world. Location is great, close to restaurant, beach, metro station, and most importantly it's a safe area, except for the beach, which gets dangerous in the nights and also when it's cloudy and empty. It's especially clean, staff come to the rooms to clean up everyday and...

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.
