Neighbourhood
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.

This is a big spacious hostel with friendly and helpful staff. There's a bar on the deck and a good social scene. More oriented for travelers looking to hang out, cook food, meet people, amd go to the beach. It's been great for me.

Fantastic hostel in a superb location on the edge (but not in) a favela which is great for atmosphere. Rooms are pleasant to stay in and the drinks deals are great! Being located near the beach is also great and you can rent beach equipment...More
