Hostel Oztel is about a 20 minute walk to Copacabana beach and the main part of Botafogo. Our room was not really clean and had mould in the bathroom and the shower was freezing cold the whole time we were there. The staff were friendly overall and the location was central to most attractions, but we would probably not stay there again.
I think the hostel should decide if it wants to be that or a bar, music so loud earplugs couldn't help until 4am wasn't ideal. It is a nice and clean hostel but we had extra people sleeping on the floor in an already cramped room, and the air conditioned turned onto 17 degrees at night which didn't make for a pleasant stay.
ALL of the staff are so friendly and willing to help. The breakfast is nice and tasty. Fruit, coffee, milk, juice, toast, brownies. The facilities are all clean and maintained. The atmosphere is great. The only slight drawback is that the restaurant they have is open to the public in the evenings so it gets very loud at night as it attracts many locals. Luckily I can sleep through most anything so it wasn't much of a problem for me. It's not too far from some main attractions. Recommended!!!
