This place is awesome. I will recommend people stay here. Awesome staff, and the best caipirinhas I've had so far :) nice and tidy, clean and safe. We will be back. X
SEN-SA-CIO-NAL este hostel!!! Ambiente muito bom, atendentes simpaticíssimos (Luíza, Dominique, Felipe), excelente custo-benefício. Recomendo muito este hostel. Voltarei ano que vem com certeza.
The hostel is right on the Copacabana beach within a walking distance to Ipanema. The staff were fantastic - super helpful. I would happily stay there again.
sauber, frühstück gut, Mitarbeiter gut, betten leider nicht gut-bitte bessere Matratzen, da durchgelegen, hart
I really enjoyed my stay at Walk on the Beach. The best was the staff and the atmosphere - the guys who work there make everything possible for you to enjoy Rio. The fact that it's a small place gives it a cozy and familiar feeling. I shall be back.
staff is actually better than "excellent" - extremely helpful and friendly
This hostel is AWESOME, we ended up extending our stay. The staff are the best we've come across; genuinely friendly, knowledgeable, and make a super caipirinha! The atmosphere is easy going, and friends are easily made. The location is perfect; a stones throw from Copacabana Beach and has everything you need in the immediate area. The Wi-Fi is excellent in all dorms and social areas. Mattresses are on the thin side but we didn't lose sleep over it. Missing the WOTB Family already!
Good location and very helpful staff, but pretty basic facilities (cramped dorms, triple bunks with very poor mattresses) and generally fairly scruffy. Common areas not the best either, particularly the bar which is up in a room away from the rest of the hostel. In my opinion there are better options in Rio.
Great location and really nice staff. However beds/dorms very uncomfortable!
Das Hostel ist der Knaller,wenn man eine aufregende Zeit in Rio verbringen will.Die Mitarbeiter sind total nett und aufgeschlossen und schlagen den Gästen viele Aktivitäten vor bzw organisieren sie selbst. Die Lage ist gut,man muss ca 5 Minuten zur Copacabana schlendern.Das Frühstück ist in Ordnung, es findet in einem Gemeinschaftsraum statt der abends zur Bar umfunktioniert wird. Alles in allem eine sehr gesellige Angelegenheit :) Ein idealer Ort, um den Aufenthalt inRio noch besser zu machen!

The best thing about walk on the beach is the people! Awesome staff and a meeting place for cool people, hanging out in the bar is comfy and natural. Good breakfast, awesome location. Rooms are a big basic (triple bunks, super thin mattresses) and the lockers are ancient, but still a good pick!
Great hostel in copacabana! Definite plus about this place are the people there, voth the travellers and th staff are amongst the nicest, friendliest and helpful people I have met on my very extensive travels. No lockers for your bags is the only fault I could possible find, but everyone staying becomes your friend and this is not a trouble. I had read many reviews and a few complaints on beds which baffles me... They have no problems! Oh, and wifi connection is excellent ;) Recommend!!
I can see why the reviews below are so good and indeed the service, location and safety of the hotel are all spot on. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome, its a short walk from the beach, bus stops and metro, and they have a great security system to make you feel safe. So for a base in Rio it is great, especially if you are starting your travels as we were. For £10-15 a night we were definitely satisfied.
Amazing hostel. So close to the beach and shops in a really safe and nice neighbourhood. The staff are all so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The bar is great for trying different drinks for really cheap and meeting other people. Would certainly recommend this hostel!
Wifi is great. Bed not so much. Good hostel.
