My favorite hostel I have ever stayed at for sure. Planned on spending a week there, ended up spending just over a month. Excellent location, and convenient to get anywhere in the city because all of the buses nearby and the metro as well. Ended up leaving with some really great friends including the staff. See you guys next summer!

A localização é ótima, porém podem melhorar em relação e higienização e conforto, o banheiro é pequeno e o vazo estava entupido várias vezes, as camas poderiam ser mais confortáveis.

Nossos colchões são novos, encapados e devidamente higienizados todos os dias. Há dois banheiros menores e outros banheiros muito espaçosos, bastava caminhar mais alguns passos. Desculpe-nos pelo inconveniente do vaso entupido, o problema foi prontamente resolvido.

Planned to stay here for 2 nights and ended up staying for 5. Awesome hostel and would definitely recommend for people staying in Rio. Great location just off Copacabana Beach, and cheap taxi rides to all the touristy attractions. Staff were excellent - always friendly and always happy to help give advice on all Rio-related issues. Hostel was always being cleaned and bathrooms/washrooms were really quite big. Brekkie was pretty much the same as everywhere else in South America (bread and cake!)

All round good place close to copacabana beach, staff were super helpful with everything. Breakfast wifi and showers were good. The 12 bed dorm has triple bunks and really tight as nowhere to store 12bags, it could do with 2a few less people in and a trampoline to get to the top bunk.

Thanks for you review. All the beds have enough space to keep all the luggage you carry and dorms are exactly as shown on our microsite. You paid the price for the room you booked.Triple bunks are usual in South America. The trampoline suggestion was a first but we´ll make sure to provide you one in case you check in again.

Utan tvekan bästa vandrarhemmet att bo på i Rio! Personalen kändes direkt som ens vänner och var väldigt hjälpsamma och trevliga! Mysig atmosfär och roligt med folk från hela världen. God frukost. Perfekt läge nära Copacabanastranden och massa affärer och restauranger. Enda negativa är att sängarna kunde varit lite skönare men allt det andra väger utan tvekan upp!

Dieses Hostel gab uns genau das was wir suchten. Zentral, sicher, eine coole Bar mit den besten Caipis und natürlich ein seehr freundliches Personal welches extrem Hilfsbereit war, vorallem der Manager (auch ein Schweizer:-), also wenn ich wider mal nach Rio gehe, dann nur in dieses Hostel.

This Hostel is absolutely great! We had the best time ever there! The staff is so nice and helpful and they are always in a good mood :) Dominik, the owner (who speaks german by the way), gave us a gourmet map to explore Rio in another way - thank you again ;) The people there were awesome, we had so much fun! At the bar, there is a Caipi Happy Hour with the best Caipis from the very nice barkeeper :) If I ever have the chance to visit Rio again: I will go to Walk On The Beach Hostel again!

Não aceitamos cartões de crédito exatamente como descrito no microsite. Desculpe-nos se nossas camas não o satisfizeram, porém todos os nossos colchões foram recentemente substituidos, encapados e são diariamente higienzados. Obrigado por deixar uma avaliação.

Great location and great staff. However, they don't turn the air conditioning on before 10 PM. That doesn't make the smallest sense - Rio Janeiro is much more hotter during the day than at night! Besides that, if you are a young traveller looking for fun, you will much likely be out of the hostel partying during the night and come back to sleep during the afternoon. That is my case. You will just have to sleep feeling too warm, as they won't turn the air conditioning on in the afternoon.

I have very little bad to say about Walk on the Beach. The staff are second to none and immediately make you feel welcome. They can't do enough to help and have always got their finger on the pulse on things to do at short notice. They'll even book it for you. The dorms are basic which is what was expected but I believe that's what really breeds a great atmosphere; hence the people you meet are always fun. Not far from Copacabana beach, good facilities, great people. Thanks guys!

Ótimo hostel.

This hostel was our first stop on our travels and the staff made us feel very welcome. They are amazing which makes the stay in this hostel more than worth while. They will help you with anything you need. The breakfast consists of bread with ham and cheese, fruit, coffee, tea and cake. All included in the price. Bedding is clean and you can rent a towel for 5 reals. The building is abit dated. The beach is 5mins walk, metro around 10mins and shops and banks about 2mins.

Se hospedar neste Hostel e como ficar numa casa de praia em galera, muito movimento e ambiente agradável entre desconhecidos que se tornam amigos, inclusive o pessoal da recepção e limpeza, curti muito! Os banheiros superiores deixam a desejar, pois tem pouca força de água e é uma luta manter limpo com tanto movimento! A segurança é média, pois se dá pela confiança entre os hóspedes, existe somente um Locker bem pequeno por hóspede, não cabe a mochila!

Obrigado por deixar uma avaliação. Fazemos a limpeza e manutenção de todos os banheiros a cada meia hora. Verificaremos o problema relacionado à força da água. Todos os nossos dormitórios são equipados com lockers para guardar mochilas pequenas e demais objetos de valor (eletrônicos e documentos). As malas são geralmente trancadas e temos um circuito intermo de câmeras e grades que torna o ambiente 100% seguro. Um porteiro garante a segurança durante a noite.

O hostel possui funcionários muito receptivos e preocupados com a boa estadia dos clientes. O lugar também é limpo e muito seguro. O convívio no hostel é sensacional!
