beds were uncomfortable and the ac just cooled down the room to zero. ask for some extra blankets. there weren't many showers for all the people, so u always had to wait. they have a own bar, it's cheaper than in a bar in the city but it's kinda overpriced for a hostel. the have plenty of tours and they are good, but also kinda overpriced. stuff was very friendly and very helpfull. all in all, u meet a plenty of people there for making party, so it's definitely a party hostel ;)

Here´s our review of you: unfriendly, unkind, did not socialize with other guests or staff members, extremely noisy and impolite. Had guests moving to different dorms just to stay away from you. A cocktail at our bar costs 2 Euros!!! Tours range from "free tours" to 40 Euros. We have a bar if you want to party and plenty of chill-out rooms if you want to relax. Not the right hostel for you and definitely not the right guests for us!


Staff were great, extremely genuine and helpful. The social areas were spaced out a little which helped people not be on top of each other. The room we stayed in wasn't a squished rectangle, thought the bunk beds did give a prison vibe (but like a long term/homey prison, and this was only in the rooms). The bathrooms were clean (!!!) and I saw people cleaning them daily! I would recommend this hostel to any friend looking for a place in Copacabana :)


We couldn't have asked for a better hostel to start our South America trip! The location, overall cleanliness, breakfast and communal facilities are excellent - but what truly makes this hostel better than any other I've stayed in is the staff. They were always going out of their way to help us and created a fantastic, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We spent many a good night in the upstairs bar, met a great bunch of people and even extended our stay. I will most definitely be back!!

The staff have been outstanding! I extended my stay because it's been so enjoyable here. The hostel is right near the beach, buses, good buffet restaurants and supermarkets which makes it very convenient. The breakfast is good and we've been recommended some really good things to do and places to eat by staff. The bar shuts at midnight so if you need to recover from the night before you can and if not, the parties just get started then so you won't miss out on the fun! Will definitely come back!


We were traveling for a month and the staff here was the most helpful we had. They answered every question we had in depth and gave great recommendations. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to have a good time in Copacabana.


Staff are brilliant here, really friendly and helpful. Beds were uncomfortable, and rooms were really basic. But there was always a good vibe in the hostel.


The staff here is awesome as is the location in Copacabana and the people that stay here. I had a tremendous experience here, and I definitely recommend the hostel. It is fairly clean and has a really good breakfast. The staff though really makes the experience.
