Good location near to metro and shops. 10 minutes from copacabana beach. Standard Brazilian breakfast of bread jam cake and cereal. Staff were pretty disorganised, during our stay, but it was fairly busy just after carnival. Very expensive compared with the rest of brazil, but I think that's just rio itself. Could do with a few more toilets and showers though.

Really amazing hostel only about 3 blocks away from Copacabana Beach (5 mins max) and a short walk to Ipanema. All the staff at the hostel at the hostel were amazing, really helpful and friendly. Great breakfast. Really comfy beds and proper power showers. I stayed here for 7 nights and will hopefully stay here again if I return to Rio. 10/10

Very well located hostel. Just a stones through from the beach and centre of Rio. The staff are very helpful and accommodating. The communal area downstairs is very nice as is the filling breakfast which goes on for 2 hours. The beds are extremely comfortable and you get new clean sheets upon arrival. Bring a small lock for the lockers as the holes in the securing chain are only about 5mm wide. Great value tours aswell.

Great all-round hostel. Good location close to the beach, friendly staff, comfortable beds and a decent breakfast. Only downside is there is really no kitchen to cook or fridges to store any drinks/food.

Was pleasantly surprised with my time in a large dorm during carnival. Comfy beds and clean washrooms. Kitchen and fridges aren't made accessible to the guests and the blankets are not washed between users which is a concern. Great location to restaurants and beach!

I stayed during the New Years and it was very popular. Pros: The girl at reception was really nice even after I bothered her with so many questions. Convenient location to Copacabana. Clean beds, AC worked great Cons: The dorm beds were REALLY high, especially the top ones. it makes it hard to get to my stuff, plus the distance between the beds were about elbow length apart

The hostel is located not to far from Copacabana beach only about 4 blocks away which is great. I stayed in a 9 person dorm and it seems they have tried to cram too many beds into one little room, i ended being put in the top of the triple decker bunk bed and there was barely enough space to sit up without hitting your head or any place to keep your luggage on the floor, however each bed had a powerpoint which was good. Breakfast was average bread and jam and cereal. small kitchen.

This hostel was in a handy location and was very clean. It was great to see so many recycling bins! However, I wouldn't book a bed in the 14-bed women's dorm again - it was so hot and had no natural light. I was happy when a member of staff suggested that I might want to swap rooms for my second night.

- Good: Amazing showers and mattresses (for a hostel); Very clean and new facilities; Very good location; Individual sockets and LED lamp. - Not so good: Really tight rooms: better pray to get some organized fellows - otherwise you'll not be able to reach your bed; The upper bed of the triple bunk is very close to the ceiling - not good if you arrive drunk or plan to stay seated while reading or chatting; A bit noisy during the night. Overall, a good place to stay!

There was a lot of noise from the tv in the common room. There was mould on the walls of the room which made the room smell musty. The window opened up to the hallway/bar area, so opening it caused extra noise and it did not feel safe to leave it open to get some fresh air when leaving the room.

The hostel was in a good location, clean and the staff were welcoming and very helpful.I liked the birightness of the hostel with no clutter just the minimum that is required. The Breakfast was served like a buffet with plenty of coffee juices yogurt,bread and cake and local fruit. the bunk bedding in the dorms was comfortable and clean with hardly any privacy, but cosy.

This is probably the best value hostel (or any accommodation) in Copacabana. eHostel is 4 short blocks away from Copacabana Beach and 1 block away from the Metro/Subway. It has very clean facilities and free breakfast. Highly recommended!

Good all round. No control of noise. Some people listening to music and talking very loudly in the lounge until late at night. But otherwise, all good!

Not only extremely clean and confortable, but also with a good vibe. only recently opened, the facilities look flawless. staff could be friendlier and more outdoors services and tours could be provided, though. well located in the end of copacabana, close to ipanema. I would definitly recomend it. value for the money.

We stayed in 6 hostels in rio and this one was BY FAR the best. The bunk beds are the most spacious that we have stayed in with actual comfortable mattresses and pillows. You have ur own electric port and bed light. The showers are amazing (really clean with actual strong pressure). They have a open plan kitchen / bar. A TV room which is decorated so nice like a home rather than a hostel. There's an outside patio with comfy chairs to chill and smoke outside. Also the staff are really chilled out

Nice hostel, new furniture. Great location, it´s in the best part of Copacabana and quite close to Ipanema (15 min walk). The staff is very helpful and gives lots of tips about places to visit.

The kitchen is only availble until 1900 as it turns into the bar after that. No direct access to fridge- have to ask staff to put stuff in and take it out. Hard to know who is working there sometimes as there can be lots of non guests hanging around watching tv. Very nice bunks with reading lights and sockets. Good air-con (though only on at night). Laptops for guest use is good. Breakfast is ok but there are no tables or space to eat it. Good location only a few blocks from the beach.
