The rooms were clean and there were enough bathrooms to accommodate all the guests. I also felt very secure with 2 locked gates to get in. I didn't find the staff very helpful or friendly in terms of suggesting tours, giving directions, etc. However I felt like I did get what I paid for and was satisfied with my stay.

Great little hostel in a convenient location! We really liked the cosy and social vibe of Rio Deal - it's not your typical party hostel but the staff are very friendly and accommodating and it was a really nice place to come back to in order to relax. Also, the hostel is one of the best equipped I've seen here in Brazil, with laptops for wifi use, and individual charging stations and lights next to all beds in the dorms, which were so handy!

Comfortable hostel very near Copacabana beach


I enjoyed the hostel for the most part, everything was your typical hostel. We did the organized football/soccer game through the hostel which was nice. My only complaint is that the hostel is very small so the bedrooms and common area are quite cramped, otherwise would recommend it!


Great Place to stay in Rio, literally 5 minutes from the beach! in Santa Clara where all the shopping centres are! and midway in Copacabana also a 15 minute walk to Ipanema. The train station (metro) and the bus stop are both no longer than 3 minutes walking distance! Great place to stay met loads of people at the hostel and everyone respects each others boundaries. the staff was brilliant on explaining and showing you things to do such a great experience.

Location is excellent: in the heart of Copacabana. Near a handful of bars, shopping areas, restaurants and bus stations. Staff was nice. There is a small common area and a rooftop. Free wi-fi and two laptops available for the guests. Restrooms were clean everytime I used them. There is also a big kitchen and a freezer, so you can cook anytime you want. Breakfast was very good.


RioDeal was an incredibly clean and hospital hostel. I would definitely stay again. The staff was very welcoming, trustworthy, and delightful! It has a great location and looking forward to returning!

Owner Comment (Hide)
This cleinte was contacted by Rio Deal B&B and questioned about the strange refereeing review, clarified that he was not responsible for the review, apologized for the inconvenience and even said that he will adopt in conjunction with Rio Deal everything needed for the review removal from the HWweb site, so then the rate of Rio Deal will be back to normal, with 94% good reviews.


Marcus is the man!


This place was GREAT!!! It was located in a very convenient location just minutes away from the beach and metro. I will definally stay here again in the future!!!
