Staff are super friendly and have a very relaxed attitude. Lucas is awesome. Just needs better internet.

Dirty toilets, messy reception, lack of information and effectiveness in the service. I didn't even stay there. Just walked in, checked out the facilities, cancelled my booking and walked out!

I stayed here over New Years and for the money I spent, the facilities weren't good 1 bathroom on the second floor for 5 dorms with God knows how meny people, the kitchen is basic at best, not even a sharp knife to cut meat. Staff arnt that helpful either.

If people are sleeping and new people come in the room, it can't be that the Crew workers. are so loud by showing the bed. Si la gente está durmiendo y nuevas personas entran en la sala, no puede ser que los trabajadores de la tripulación. son tan fuertes, mostrando la cama.

Best location near the beach and metro and everything. Bathrooms are not cool (no light after 20sec, not very clean). Staff want to sell you everything, you pay also to leave your luggage a few hours. They offer a great favela tour.

This was a nice hostel to stay in, really close to the beach. The staff were really nice as well, and helpful when asking about the area and advice. The only downsides that I found were that the was no locks on the toilets doors, and that you could only access the WiFi in the downstairs reception s area.

No wifi anywhere except for in reception - where there aren't any lounge chairs, only 2 hard chairs. Good breakfast, clean rooms with aircon, fantastic staff. My locker and the men's bathroom lock was broken - and the rooftop wasn't taken care of with broken everything, empty pool. Great place if you're just looking for a bed but to spend more than 1 day, minimum wifi is a little frustrating.

There is no internet in the room. This was a major flaw.

This is the worst hostel i have known. Everything about it is bad apart from the guests and they are lucky the guests stay nice. Where to start? Well the welcoming, there is no welcoming at all, they don't even look at you, just ask you to pay at arrival. Then the rooms, they are so small, it smells so bad inside, the lockers are too smalls to put your bags on. I was in a room of 6, it had 3 bunk beds really close to each other, the room had no window, the staff was not helpful at all.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The party down stairs was busy & fun. No real common area so was hard to meet other people. Location was good.

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.

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.

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.

Stayed at the hostel in RIO during the World Cup. Overall was happy, prices were super inflated due to the event, but it was clean (bathrooms done every 4-5 times a day). Area was on main road close to beach so super safe. People at hostel were awesome. The Wednesday night latin party is fun/loud but be ready not to sleep that night! Weekly BBQ delicious. Great rooftop patio & common area. WiFi was terrible & only works in lobby. Would come back for sure but only in private rooms

Overall great location. The staff is nice too, especially jacob whose a very helpful guy. The hostel is not great for meeting new people, as it lacked a common area where people gather. Anyways, breakfast is basic but passable. Their was a night club with toolbags whose music blasted until 4am which screwed the people who wanted to sleep at 2am after a long days drinking but overall the location could not be beaten. Pizza place next door is good for late eats, anyhows rio was sick. Philly Chris
