Hostelworld says

CabanaCopa is set next to Morro de São João park, just a few minutes' walk from Copacabana beach. This clean, friendly hostel offers a good balance of nightlife and quiet atmosphere, with an onsite bar open until around 10pm. It also has some nice little essential features, like a varied breakfast and plug sockets at each bed. Hostelworld guests tell us they'd stay here again and will recommend it to friends.

    Bit of a steep incline if you have mobility issues. The location is only a few blocks from the beach, close to grocery stores, shopping and transport. Was an enjoyable time and nice stay.

    This is a legit nice place, easy to find (just a 15-20 minutes or so ride from SDU airport); electronic keys to the outside door. The staff (Ian, Hudson and Hugo) are incredibly nice, speak great English (which is not a super common occurrence in Brazil) and generous when providing advice on things to do / getting around Rio. The hostel is on a quiet street (sharp incline though, may not be accessible to folks in wheelchairs).

    Staff are really nice, really good location, 5 min walk to Copacabana beach. Really nice rooms, clean and every bed has a curtain. Didn’t feel it was as social as normal hostels for solo travellers, common area is quite small.

    Really great location, next to the metro and a very short walk to the beach. Rooms are fine. Some of the staff are not very helpful and didn't seem to know the answers to basic questions about the hostel. The hostel attracts a great crowd and I met some cool people there.

    El hostel es muy bueno en general, lo único es que les falta mantenimiento y cambiar cosas que ya están en muy mal estado. Las sábanas estaban rotas, y los lockers eran super viejos y hacían mucho ruido, lo cual era un poco incomodo cuando alguien más estaba durmiendo. Las neveras estaban super llenas, no les cabía nada y muchas cosas estaban hasta vencidas, probablemente de huéspedes que hace tiempo se habían ido del hostel.

    Very Good

    Nice hostel overall if you are staying a few days in Rio. Staff helpful giving us information about trips and booking transport. Only negative was that we booked a 6 bed ‘deluxe’ dorm room and only one bed out of the 6 was deluxe - it had curtains, 2 USB ports, normal charge ports, a light and a basket for small belongings along with ample space under the bed - nice for some...

    This place is always damp and stuffy. There isnt any airflow through the hostel. Our beds alwayd felt damp and smelly, nothing dries at all. The internet is terrible, only kind of works at reception and th e rooftop. The rooms are okay, really small and cramped to get anything out. The only good thing is that this is really close to the beach and they have good security.

    Didn’t love our time here. Paid a fortune (because of Carnival) for a small, cramped, dated room. The place was pretty dirty particularly the toilets/showers. We found the staff to be useless. We were put in separate rooms the first night due to a “booking mess up” even though we booked 4 months prior, we had to ask the staff multiple times for something before they did it, they messed up the bus pick up times when we left. All in all a disappointment

CabanaCopa Hostel says

We're in a unique location near the beach, next to a park where you can see the jungle in the middle of Copacabana Beach. The nearest attractions are, of course, Copacabana Beach and the Sugar Loaf, but the one place that I recommend to guests is Copacabana Fort.
I think this hostel is perfect for backpackers who want to stay in a good location at a budget price, or anyone else, although we don't allow children. For fun people like to play cards and pool, watch movies and socialise in the cinema lounge, have a drink at the bar, cook big meals in the kitchen or even cook a barbecue in the patio area. We also have some great extras like air conditioning and blackout curtains in most of the rooms. Ian, Owner
