We have been traveling for 4 months now and this was the worst hostel we have stayed in. They messed up our accommodation numerous times and even cut off our looks from the lockers and took all our things because they thought we were checking out but we were payed up for 2 weeks. The majority of the staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. Kobi was the exception, he would always go out of his way to help us and his BBQ nights were fantastic.


Pros: Location, atmosphere Cons: Wi-Fi is limited (dificult to get signal in rooms) and w/c are not always working


Awesome hostel!! would definitely stay here again! Staff was super friendly and organized with setting up tours. breakfast was great. location is perfect!

Copa Hostel was a fun place to stay, great upstairs patio with pool, amazing BBQ's. One staff member was very helpful and went out of his way to make you feel at home, the others I found a little rude and disinterested, please look up from your computer when I approach the front desk and maybe crack a smile! Wifi only worked in the reception area and there was only 2 toilets/showers on the top level.


nice place although i was put in the apartment where there was no internet and was very noisy.


I stayed here for 2 weeks during the world cup. This was the best hostel I stayed in during my 5 week stay in Rio. The hostel is in a great location near the Copacabana beach and the Contaglio metro stop. The Hostel puts on good events such as barbecues etc. The breakfast were good too. The wifi was a little slow but this is common in most hostels in Rio.
