When I was in Rio I stayed at lemon spirit and discovery, but this hostel was definitely my favourite. The others were good but the staff at Walk on the Beach were incredible- always welcoming, happy to help and friendly. The value for money is great- cheap rooms and yet you get a great free breakfast! The place has a homely feel and to have a nice breakfast area and bar is an awesome addition. I would definitely stay again!

Great place, great people! My only regret is that I let the caipirinhas go to my head too many nights and could not spend more time talking with the awesome staff members of this hostel the mornings after :) Best of luck to you all! - H & J

Very good hostel on a quiet safe corner in Rio, couple blocks away from the beach, has everything a traveler needs. Friendly staff and a-ma-zing breakfast!

O atendimento é excelente e também gostei dos chuveiros. Uma caracteristica do hostel é que as área de convivencia, especialmente na recepção são bem calmas, então indico o hostel pra quem não gosta de muita bagunça ou gosta de áreas mais silenciosas. um ponto negativo são os armários, muito pequenos, não cabem as malas e quando fazemos o check out não há uma sala segura com armários para guardarmos as malas, eles orientam guardarmos na sala da TV, que fica aberta.

The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The rooms were a bit crowded, but everything was very clean. Great location, only few blocks from the beach. I stayed two nights and had a great time here!

staff and location were great. We didnt realise the triple dorm would be a triple bunk bed - which was quite high! breakfast was good & would definitely recommend to others

Great hostel. The three tiered beds are a little strange and if you suffer from vertigo, stay away from the top but if you plan on staying in your room too much, wrong hostel for you! Great vibe, great staff who are super friendly and ready to party with the guests and awesome bar! Only three blocks from the beach too! If you wat a good time, definitely recommended!!

Gostei de tudo, principalmente da hospitalidade do pessoal que trabalha no hostel. A única coisa que me incomodou e que existe uma area de fumantes na frente do hostel e a fumaça entra na recepção toda, pra quem não fuma isso é chato.

Great location...close to supermarket, bars, restaurants, transportation, beach, etc. Very helpful & friendly staff!!! The breakfast is okay, could have more variety & maybe be available a little earlier. But overall, a great hostel!

This was probably the most fun hostel in Rio. It was a few steps away from the beach, right between Ipanema and Copacabana. The atmosphere is always relaxed and fun, both the travelers and the staff chill in the common areas, everyone goes out for drinks and clubs together, and the bar serves the strongest caipirinhas around.

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.
