Horrible place.. NO hot water at my whole floor The staff is horrible except Maria..she is fantastic..the rest all the staff just wants to give a hard time..they dont like travellers. No wifi in the rooms at all You have to ring the bell sevral times for them to open the main door Not many plugs in the room and half of them not working Breakfast was very bad..everything had meat in it except the cake. Hostel is on a very steep climb in a not very safe area. Uncomfortable beds No outdoor are

Hi! We are sorry but the hot water problem is now fixed. At least it was Rio's summer (34/38 C) so not that bad. The new rooms have power plugs in each bed but the cheapest and bigger dorm still don't. Our street has 24 hours security + a police cabin in front, how can it be safer? Also we are located 500m from Copacabana Palace Hotel, the 5 star most expensive hotel in Rio, so good area. The new rooms also have spring mattresses. We are sorry about our staff we will talk to them. Our breakfast varies from day to day so maybe the day you stayed the variety wasn't your favorite. Also we make it a buffet so it depends on what time you wake up, as some things can run out and be substituted for others. For sure there was bread, butter, jam, fruit for vegetarians. We are building a huge rooftop, but we also have a patio, backyard with bbq and front patio. Safe travels, CabanaCopa Staff

The location wasnt guided properly. The bathrooms were a bit far from my room. The staff is very nice and helpful but what i didnt like is after 9 pm you have to get the staff there to open the door for you every time you come or go out and the door is in another room then the reception...in a way i felt a bit of a curfew cuz how many times i would wake her up to open the door.

The location and nice common areas but they close by midnight which is a shame. Shortage of showers n some of them dont have anywhere to hang clothes. The staff os very friendly and helpful. Its definitely not a party hostel. Beds r very comfortable and good security overall.

The beds are comfortable but no lockers in the room. Its a party hostel so very loud. Internet is hopeless. if u r on a particular diet or something then never eat at their restaurant because twice it happened that i ordered a vegetarian pizza n they brought me ham quedilla or something n then they were just blaming each other like children.very unprofessional. There is always a stinking smell in the room though.

The place has good food n terrace...the staff was really not interested at all in guiding or helping. The rooms were cold n stinky bathroom with a very dull light n no windows in the room..the agency also cant b bothered in providing information on excursions etc

The hostel is in a good location and the staff is very helpful except that they didn't have a map to give when i asked for another one cuz the 1st one got wet in the rain. The loud compressors of AC outside all the windows will not u sleep. NO wifi in the room or the open area or anywhere except the near the reception downstairs. The breakfast was not hygenic at all. Not an environment to meet people.

The location was great but the staff was a bit misleading about a few things asked n seemed like didn't really care. There was no internet connection in the room. There was no bar in the hostel which is mention in their profile. The beds were comfortable.

View Property Reply

yeah, the beds are comfortable, and it is a nice sleep, especially when there are no skypers in your room while you try to sleep. thats the reason for not having internet in the dorms. we offer several laptops in the common rooms for free use and you used them a lot which is the prpose for having the "social areas with the laptops and free wifi. The Bar mentioned is located just 10 meters from the hostel and I am very surprised that you did not find it / asked about it, although we had lots of conversations together. It surprised me a lot that you thought we were not taking care about our guests.

The hostel had a great location with a great view from the rooftop. It was very nice and cozy with comfortable beds. The staff was great..very friendly n e helpful. The only issue was the internet connection, there was hardly any or if there was then it would keep on disconnecting even if u r sitting next to the router.

View Property Reply

Our hostel provide free wifi connection that usually works perfectly. The problem you experienced is solely due to the internet service provider. Unfortunately, on rare occasions the whole network in a specific area suffers slowliness. Considering the fact our staff kindly explained it was only temporary your comment is a bit unfair. Nevertheless, except for this small glitch, were are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll be back someday.

This was the worst experience of my travels. They are very dodgy people from top to bottom. They promise a stay in the middle of the city but once you pay them, they take you around 40 mins drive outside the city in the middle of no where in a school which is on summer holidays and leave you there and when i questioned them and asked for my money back for the remaining nights. The guy was like `dont mess with me, i run the city and you are just a tourist and no money will be paid back`
