I chose this hostel because it's very close to downtown and because I was moving from a party hostel and wanted more tranquilness. The staff is really nice and helpful and it's not a party hostel which means that is not packed with american kids yelling and drinking until late. I liked this hostel.
Is located in the middle of Copacabana and 2 blocks from the beach. It has two open spaces to meet people including a swimming pool area and a large living room.
When I first got to the hostel, te receptionist gave me some dirty sheets. When I told her about that, she replaced them inmediately though. It was the only thing I didn't like, the rest was perfect.
