Great place to stay in Rio, staff were helpful and had excellent recommendations for nightlife, restaurants etc. Ended up staying longer than planned thanks to the Walk on the beach gang. Romeo

This hostel is great! The staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, especially the hotel manager Dominique who was constantly helpful, upbeat and fun. The location is great and there is a beautiful breakfast every morning and a great bar at night. We extended our stay tor two weeks after originally only booking one. Though it is a bit more expensive than other hostels because of location it's completely worth it. We loved every moment of our stay.

Walk on the beach is very well located. Just 3 blocks away from Copacabana. It is a touristic neighborhood, with many policemen and people walking around so in my opinion is really safe. However, you always need to be careful. The staff was always there to help and advise us. Dominik is a really good guy, who knows everything about the city and will try to make your staying as pleasant as it can be. I hope I will come back one day. Thank you guys!

Amazing place! Super close to the beach and the beds were comfortable but what really made the stay was the STAFF. can't thank all of you enough, especially Dom, you're great! xoxo

This hostel is fantastic! The staff make you feel like you're just a friend staying at their place - they will offer you great advice on travel plans, Rio, security etc, sit and chat with you - all with a genuine smile. Tours and taxis were good value. Great included breakfast. Great security. Free caipirinha at the upstairs bar. The quality of sleep was somewhat questionable - but I can't blame the hostel - it was more the dormmates. But bring earplugs and eyemask if you're a light sleeper.

Great location and staff were fantastic. Only issue the 12 bed dorm is a bit small for that amount of people.

I was staying for one night in one of the Misti hostels and it sucked. They were overbooked and canceled my booking so I randomly landed in the walk on the beach. My time here was amazing. The staff is incredibly nice, especially Alessandra and Bo, the owner. If you need help with anything they will help you and really take their time. The atmosphere is great too, the rooms are clean and the wifi works everywhere. I'll definitely come back!!! All the best from Curitiba and Germany Jan

Very good hostel, close to Copacabana Beach and very secured! The dorms are a little bit cramped, but the staff is awesome!

Decent place. The beds in the dorms aren't the best and could be improved.

The hostel itself was great and i met some great people here, but it's really the hostel staff that makes the experience. Alessandra is the BEST. I forget his name but the guy who works the bar at night is great as well.

We thought the staff were exceptional, especially catering for various languages. The manager and staff felt like family after a week, we were truely sad to say goodbye to them!

Nice hostel, lovely and helpful staff. Felt a little bit small for the number of guests - e.g. the breakfast area doesn`t have loads of space but not really a problem. Really good kitchen, nice TV room etc, close to Copacabana beach, would recommend!

This hotel has a great vibe. It's an old house converted into a hostel so naturally some rooms are small. But it has a homely feel to it too. It's very social, you have no choice but to mingle in the close quarters. The bar is small but fun. The beds are of average comfort. If you're looking for a hostel with decent atmosphere, great location, and generally a nice place to stay - then this is it.
