I stayed at this hostel during the World cup group stages. The staff was professional and friendly and the restrooms were clean. One of the things that i particularly liked was the happy hour in the evenings when you could get 1 for 1 caipirinha. Its location is also amazing given that it is a 5 min walk from the beach and few mins walk from many restaurants and cafes.

The staff were amazing!!! They took care of us, partied with us, shared all their knowledge of the city with us, and even kept in touch! This was by far the most happening hostel I stayed at, with a great location right near the beach. While always a ton of fun, they also maintained a high level of cleanliness and integrity which was greatly appreciated. There's now way you can't have an incredible time and not meet a memorable group of friends here- I look forward to my next visit!

stayed here during World Cup. Over priced charging hotel prices for dorm. Word of advice the only good activity on offer is the favela funk party. All the rest are sh!t clubs regardless of what Lucy the little blonde girl tells ya. Just go party in lapa!!!

The earlier you book the cheaper it is, the prices go up as the hostel gets full. Hostel and hotel prices naturally fluctuates due to demand and will understandably go up during busier times as holidays and weekends, the world cup months was probably the busiest months of the whole year. Best regards, CabanaCopa staff

Genuinely the best hostel I have EVER stayed in. Staff were unbelievable. Always getting you involved in trips and the local things going on. Pleasantly surprised with the included breakfast every day that wasn't advertised too. Will definitely look this place up if ever in Rio again. Thanks for everything guys!!!

I loved CabanaCopa! It was my first time in a hostel and it was beyond what I could have imagined. It was clean, staff was friendly, and I met cool people. I love how the would have happy hour and they would turn off the wifi so people could like you know....talk! Lol. I would definitely go back. ENYA was super nice as was Carlos. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!

Felt dirtier going in the toilet than going out. Charged me for 2 nights but I canceled 24 hours in advance. No where in there email did it say 48 hour cancelation. Very loud at all hours.

We clean our bathrooms twice daily, but some of the shared ones can get messy depending on guest's use. We are planning to add one more night cleaning shift to improve service quality. Cancellation 24 hours in advance is the standard policy but during the world cup we had a no cancellation policy, which was clearly stated on the website. Sorry about the loudness but you came during the world cup, usually it's more quiet. Best regards, CabanaCopa

Stayed here for about 6 nights and had a very pleasant and enjoyable time. The atmosphere was always really good. If you're travelling alone it is easy to meet people. The staff were great andthey always came out on any nights out. Lucy and Enya were great as were the other guys.

The Staff was new and she has made some mistakes by paying and booking Taxitransfers. The Bathrooms are only average. The location and the atmosphere is good.

Too many beds for the instalations, toilettes clogged everytime, long waits on showers, small place for breakfast, and never enough food for everybody. They know they have a problem and they even block sites like booking or other hostel webpages so you don't move from the hostel. Bad bad bad

We have the most spacious rooms in the market but it is important that guests keep their things and bags in order to keep it spacious. We clean our bathrooms twice daily, but they can get messy depending on guest's use. We are adding one more night cleaning shift, to improve service quality. There are several other bathrooms on different floors you could have gone to if yours was occupied. our system has connectivity to all hostel websites which might make access restricted to some sites.

Cabanacopa hostel is set in a old colonial building that has a peaceful clean and friendly atmoshere. The staff are freindly and helpful with giving diections and ideas for activities and sightseeing. The hostel is a few blocks from Copacabana beach and the metro station. I found it easy to meet fellow travellers and go and visit some local bars together.

Thank you for staying with us and for leaving a review. Our breakfast is a buffet and it has juices (not fresh but it is a backpacker's hostel, not the Hilton), coffee, tea, milk, cereal, honey, bread, butter, jam, cheese, ham, salami, fresh fruits, eggs, sausage, cake, toast etc. which is pretty good for hostel standards. Best regards, CabanaCopa staff
