The location is awesome: really close to copacabana beach, the sugar loaf and many other beaches like botafogo and urca.The facilities are nice, however no A/C in any of the rooms which can be challenging in summer.the breakfast does the job, and the staff really try to make you feel comfortable and to arrange activities for you. Price was fair and there are plenty of restaurants, pharmacies and supermarkets around the block... Staying just one block away from the beach for this price is great
This hostel was perfect for staying close to Copacabana. It's 5 minutes walking distance to the Leme beach, which is a bit nicer and cleaner than the very center of the Copa beach. The breakfast/reception area is very nice and the staff is friendly. However, the 10 bed room I was in was a bit too crowded (hard to squeeze between the bunk beds and lower bunk doesn't get wind from the fan so I woke up very sweaty!). Room was not the cleanest but bathrooms were clean. Overall, pretty satisfied.
I absolutely loved it. Definitely one of the best, cleanest and friendliest hostels in South America. Loved the location at the far western side of Copacabana beach, just 3 min walk from the beach in a quiet leafy neighbourhood. The staff, manager Neusa and housekeeper Gil were extremely accommodating and friendly. I felt like I was visiting a very hospitable friend's house, not staying at a hostel. Most highly recommended! You will love it here.
