Friendly staff, location was a bit far but a 20 min walk to copacabana beach, not including the 100+ steps to get up to the place. Kitchen is another 20 steps up in a separate house which was a slight inconvenience. Bathrooms and toilets were not very clean. Wet towels on the floor, no doors for the toilets in the communal bathroom.


A nice hostel. Nice receptionist and staff. A few things were still under construction during my stay but still one of the best addresses in Rio. And the neibourhood is very safe and friendly


this is such a nice hostel! its only ten minutes walk to the beach and has a beautiful view of the city. the staff are so lovely and helpful, especially ray. its definitely the cheapest hostel in copacabana and the best value for money. would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone
