Bad things: You should bring a locker with you in order to use the locker. the bed and the pillows are in really bad conditions.The beds are fragile and noisy. The breakfast is really poor in variety. You can only have bread with butter ( or jelly). Rio de janeiro is too hot as you know, but my shower only had hot water. The wi fi signal is really really poor. Good things: Really great staff working there. Speak eng and span.The location is amazing and the price is much better than the average

Alejandro was awesome always had a smile. Great location in copacabana,


I love copinha hostal...clean. just a nice place to be...rooms are nice and cool very clean ..a place very very clean a nice place to relax.... one reason I go to Rio is to stay at this hostal. albert strignano


This hostel is fine to just use for sleeping and are planning on being out a lot as there is no hostel atmosphere. It is also an old building with not very nice linen or furniture and the room is very crammed with no natural light. However the staff are really friendly and speak English and the location is good. It is also safe with a locked gate that they buzz you in with.


The hostel could improve the breakfast, that it was minimum and the cleaning.


great location, small rooms, not all of the staff guys are kind


-no lockers in the room (just outside in the hallway, dirty and small) - mould is basically everywhere in the Hostel (too bad that most of the rooms dont have windows - breathing masks required if you want to get some sleep) - the ac was installed 10cm infront of the bed where my boyfriend was supposed to sleep (according to the staff changing the room or even the bed was not possible) - poorest breakfast I had on my entire travel in Brasil - never ever i would stay there again


Friendly staff, good price, convenient location but "breakfast" was quite a disappointment. Only a roll and small amount of fruit. A disappointment!


The rooms are too small for 6. The night guy was aufull and very not nice when i arrived


There are too many beds in the little rooms. They should have maximum 4 beds instead of 6 beds. There is no space to put the luggages and backpacks. The lockers outside the bedrooms are too small. The breakfast is too poor, just one bread, milk and coffe and you´re not allowed to ask for more bread. I booked a 6 bed male room but when I arrived there, they said that there is no male room!!


Is a good hostel, the staff is always helpful but the breakfast is very poor (only one bread, coffee and juice). The rooms are fine but not for long stay as they don´t have space to hang or put any stuff apart from the locker outside the rooms. Is the second time I stay there and can say they have improved since then. Aircon in the rooms are also very nice even when I had to sleep with the aircon almost on my bed (higher part of a bunk bed). Cleanliness can also be improved. Overall is a ok plac


Good location. Facilities are just ok.


Location is very good. As a couple I wouldn't book the private suite, cause it's located right at the entrance at the reception under the stairs with the only window facing the hallway. Meaning, it may get really loud! Staff is really friendly and helpful. Breakfast is sparse


Staff very friendly but not the most knowledgeable. Breakfast was very weak, some days only bread, I would recommend adding at least a fruit.


The common area (as well as the breakfast area) was a bit in the small side. The staff was very nice and helpful.


They gave us a double bedroom in front of the reception desk, with no windows, only a small hatch to the main corridor/common area! That meant *zero* privacy and a lot of noise at night. Actually, during the official "silence hours", some other guests (among them some very rude Israelis) started playing the guitar and singing right next to our room. I couldn't sleep until they stopped at 1pm. The breakfast was ridiculous, go have it anywhere else.


The best staff, thank you. But, The beds could be better. And, the hostel was completely empty and they put me in a bedroom with two noisy guys, I still don't understand.


Cleanliness of the bathrooms (ensuites) could be a bit better. Apart from that, the staff were great. Very knowledgable and accommodating. The breakfast was great and despite the language barrier the non-reception staff were fantastic and helpful. Maybe have some more maps available at reception though?


Everything OK for low budget travellers, the bed was a bit hard (personal opinion)


Located at the very end of copacabana towards Leme. It's close to the beach but a long walk to ipanema and leblon. There are three computers but you have to pay to go on the internet. Small breakfast. Bunkbeads even in the double rooms. Very uncomfortable beds.
