A great place ! The location is awesome , close to the beach and to anything you will need ! The staff is amazing , helps you with anything and so nice and welcoming !!! I will defently come back here if I would visit Rio again !!! The place is extremely clean , and the kitchen have anything you will need !! I really recommend it !!
Everything was fine inclduing location, atmosphere, etc but please add more bathrooms. Abysmally low number of bathrooms. And the internet malfunctioned quite a few times.
I thought the location was going to be better..it was located several blocks from the beach and not the nicest neighborhood. If you want to go out at night there is not too much to do around there, I would recommend staying more in the city center, Lapa to be exact.
The main problem for us was that rooms are very small. There was almost no space for bags. There are very tall three bed bunkers some of which touch the caged fans. Don't go if you are afraid of heights! Also there are very few bathrooms. The staff is helpful and willing to solve some problems, but when asked how to go to the airport at 7 am they assured taxi was the only choice which was far from truth. They have an unexpensive bar, but breakfast was not satifcatory. We expected more..
Just a great experience to be in the walk to the beach hostel, the staff Louise, Charlote and Giovana were so nice and helpful.
Everything was okay, specially the staff , Loiuse, Charlote and Giovana were so nice and helpful, thanks a lot.
Quite expensive for a very basic hostel and it could have been cleaner. Not enough bathrooms. Overall it has what you need and the location is good in copacabana but I wouldn't be rushing back. Not that much of a party atmosphere either, at least not when we were there. The staff were nice and helpful and there's a decent free breakfast
Not too much to say, just it was one of the hostel I made. Super cool people there, plugs for each bed in the room, Wi-Fi everywhere, 3 minutes away from the beach, cheap bar to have some drinks before to go to party. Like I said, super cool hostel !

Tha staff was amazing! Nice breakfast and really nice atmosphere . Always felt completely safe and although the rooms are very small- I had a lovely time.
A great stay as always. I can't stop coming back!
One of the better hostels in Copacabana. Simple but cosy. Not too crowded and just enough people to get to know a nice group of people. The staff is always willing to help you and like to have a chat. Nearby the subway, which is very useful in this big city.
Couple of experiences marred our stay here. First night the roof leaked which soaked a lot of stuff in the room. Fifth night a guy got very drunk and peed and vomited in the room. Another incident happened on our last night and both times resulted in the guys being evicted from the room. We have to give the staff credit for dealing with it so well, and were generally great overall- especially Dom! The bar was cosy and really cheap, especially during happy hour! Breakfast was so so.
Only complaint, is the roof leaked when it was pouring rain. We had to use buckets to catch it and quickly move our backpacks around. The room is somewhat small for a nine person dorm. The lockers could be updated (they're dented and well worn) but worked none the less. The reception staff was amazing! English speaking and very helpful guiding us around Rio and setting up tours! Building is very secure, guest get ID cards. Felt safe our entire stay!
A hostel in a great location in Copacabana, though not a great atmosphere. There were a couple of very large groups staying there so it was harder to meet people. The bar is also very slow when ordering drinks, which makes it more annoying you cannot bring alcohol in.
Certainly a very well run hostel. Using a portuguese expression, it's a "máquina bem oleada".
Everything at Walk on the Beach is excellent but what really sets it apart is the staff. They are so friendly and helpful and really care about making your stay in Rio an awesome one. I stay at Walk whenever I'm in Rio and would recommend it to anyone!
My stay at the hostel was a very positive experience. The staff were very positive, friendly and helpful, and they promoted a very positive environment. While in Brazil, my debit card was compromised, and the manager Dominic and his staff (especially Giovanna) were very helpful and supportive as I made my necessary calls to the bank to resolve the issue. Moreover, the Caipirinha Happy Hours were very enjoyable and I met a lot of great people at the hostel as well. I highly recommend this hostel.
