I had a really great time at Walk on the Beach. The atmosphere is really great and really familiar. They help you whenever they can (Thank you). I had the feeling that all of them especially Stef and Dominique (the strongest man in Rio ;) ) knew every single backpacker and his/her story. Felipe will be a famous singer once and until that he prepares the best Caipirinha (for sure). Apart from that I felt secure and it was really clean. I would love to stay longer than 5 days. Saudade gente!

There were 3 male toilets / showers for the entire hostel, it was hardly enough and there were queues. Due to the high volume, the toilets and showers werent very clean. The hostel is in a great location but the facilities are lacking along with the bunk beds being 3 high.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We have an average of 4 guests per bathroom when we are running at capacity which has proved to be enough. There might have been a larger number of male guests at one point, which could have caused the cues to the bathroom. Such things are hard to predict/ avoid and we are sorry for that. Our full time cleaning staff keeps up with the cleaning of bathrooms and common areas at all times. Our three story bunk beds are very usual in Copa and are shown on our microsite. Thanks for leaving a review.


Aside from being clean, serving great breakfast, having an awesome bar , what's truly unique about this hostel is the most friendly coolest staff I have ever met in a hostel - who creates a homelike feeling. Stefanie at the reception , Felipe at the Bar, and most of all Dominique the manager will make you feel at home ! They know the city like only true Cariocas know & they will connect you with all that's cool and beautiful. Really good place to meet other travelers if you travel Solo !


Super Hostel, sehr nette Mitarbeiter, tolle Atmosphäre. Bestes Hostel auf meiner Reise, kann ich allen wärmstens empfehlen


Excellent hostel with great staff! The Swiss guy was especially helpful in offering advice. Only 5 mins away from the beach. Safe area. Good breakfast and bar area. Would recommend!! Great travellers backpacking hostel.
