I have had a great time at Cafe Rio Hostel. This is an ideal place for those looking for a relaxing stay in Rio as this hostel definitely feels more like a pousada. Its location is also very good and safe and the owners Marcia and Jacques are very kind and always willing to help you. More

One of the best hostels I ever stayed in. They though about every detail and that's what makes a huge difference. The place is clean, sheets come in a sealed plastic. The bunk beds are attached to the wall and beds have quite a space between them. Each bed has a small shelf on the side, More

I had a great time here. The staff were great and welcoming. Sheila and Lucas were awesome in providing recommendations for activities, restaurants, and commuting. It had a laid back atmosphere which is great to have especially after a hectic, crazy day out in the city. And breakfast is More

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. More

What a hostel! The staff truly make the place. They have incredible knowledge of Rio and the rest of Brazil and are the most helpful and friendly people I've come across during my travels. The hostel is in a perfect location, barely 5 minutes walk to Copacabana Beach and all shops and More

Great location, clean rooms, comfortable beds, big bathrooms, nice staff, kitchen for guests and an excellent breakfast for a good price. The building looks a bit old, but it is cozy. The only flaw is that my room was a bit noisy in the morning, since it faced an avenue with considerable More

Loved this hostel. Really charismatic place. Great area to explore real Rio. Roof terrace is beautiful by day or night to look over the city. Easy to make friends. Full kitchen facilities and they sell drinks in the kitchen with an honesty pot. Beds very comfortable. Big secure lockers. More

it was insanely disappointing to discover that a common area/rooftop closes at 10pm! as a result there's NO place to 'socialize' in the evening... besides your room which in my case was very small and dark. location is BAD. there's nothing exciting around. it's a very non-touristy, rough More

Felipe made us feel welcome immediately as we walked through the door. We stayed in a spacious 10 bed dorm room which had good locking facilities for your things and clean bed linen. The atmosphere during the day is chilled and the outside seating area is a good place to made friends. The More
