The LightHouse is very close to both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches as well as Ipanema metro station. Hostelworld guests frequently say they'd stay here again, saying it's 'located in a great spot in Ipanema, close to nice restaurants and the beach [and] bus stops' and is 'small but perfect for getting to know the other guests and hanging out'. The friendly owner is known for her extensive knowledge of Rio de Janeiro's sites, restaurants and things to do. Our visitors have also said they'd recommend this hostel to other travellers.
