The best hostel in Rio. The staff is very nice and friendly, always talking with people about things to do, shorcuts and places to go. The place is very nice and full of cool people.

I guess it is a good hostel with a very nice atmosphere and people. The location is very good and you spend less than 5 minutes to arrive on the beach. I liked it!

No geral a estadia não foi ruim. Muitos pontos positivos. Tive problemas com o vigia noturno que foi muito grosso comigo, mais de uma vez. Acredito que devido a quantidade de hospedes deveria limpar mais o banheiro, que fica sujo muito rapido. Falta gancho nos banheiros de cima, e poucas áreas livres para quem fuma por exemplo, não tem um lugar agradavel para ficar algum tempo no hostel.

Obrigada pela avaliação. Você foi repreendida por fazer barulho em um quarto coletivo. Nossa equipe de limpeza trabalha de 7 da manhã às 11 da noite higienizando todas as dependências (inclusive os banheiros). Os banheiros são todos coletivos e verificados constantemente. Oferecemos sala de estar, patio, sala de TV, bar e café - portanto bastante espaço de áreas comuns. Obrigada por compartilhar sua opinião.

Great hostel just a couple of blocks back from Copacabana Beach. The staff really make the effort to get to know you, and the place is just the right size that you'll meet plenty of people without it being overwhelming (I find the bigger hostels a bit less sociable sometimes because people don't recognise you). There are always people willing to go to that night's party, and the staff are happy to assist. My favourite hostel of the four I stayed in in Rio!

I LOVED my stay at WONTB! I stayed for NYE 2013-14 and it was so great, a short walk to Copacabana beach, slightly longer to walk to Ipanema. Good places to eat nearby, pretty safe, banks, laundry close by. The hostel organises some great tours at reasonable prices. I did the favela tour and city tour which had great guides, value for money. Rooms: if you have the choice, the best are the 6 bed or 9 bed dorms upstairs. Special shout-out to staff Luisa and Michael - amazing, extra mile!!!!

Really good location to Copacabana beach. Great hostel bar and good wifi. Room was a bit grim as it was a three bed bunk and pretty rickety. Helpful staff.

It was an amazing time in this hostel. Really nice staff, friendly, helpful. Good bar with a really good atmosphere. The beach is close to the hostel. If you like, you can go every day to a recommended club.

My favourite hostel in South America! Great location, wifi that worked well, best breakfasts, clean showers, really nice people who worked here and social people who stayed here. You can chill out and also party which I like. I would stay here again!

The staff were very friendly here. We went out almost every night with some of them. The hostel is in a great location very near Copacabana beach. Had a few midnight swims. Would definitely recommend staying near the beach rather than in Lapa area.

Among the 20+ hostels in three continents I've been to, Walk on the Beach Hostel is definitely one of the best. The staff is excellent and the location is perfect (close to the beach and a metro station).

Lu,Felipe and Dominquie the receptionists are very helpful and friendly.Thanks for everything.You can book tours at the reception but the metro and bus stations are also close by. Breakfast is good and they got free wifi and 2 computers with internet. I can recommend this hostel to everyone.

I really liked this hostel. The staff were all really nice and friendly. They were absolutely helpful when you had questions, but also they were giving advices. We have been here for a few nights. After that we were traveling further. When we came back we decided to stay in another part of Rio de Janeiro. However if you want to be around the Copacabana, this is definitely a good place to stay!

O tratamento é diferenciado, mais próximo, familiar, aconchegante, uma delícia. Todos os funcionários - recepção, bar, limpeza, segurança - são as melhores pessoas possíveis. Minha única sugestão é: mais ganchos para roupas nos banheiros! De resto, tudo ótimo. Parabéns (:
