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.

    This place was close to the metro station, shops and Copacabana beach. Upstairs breakfast (an extra 18 Real = $6.33 AUD) had fruit, cereal, coffee, breads, cheese, sausages, eggs, salad, everything you need for a healthy breakfast and a great view upstairs. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The air con in the rooms can sometimes be a bit too cold, but I just asked and the staff turned it up for me, no problems. The showers sometimes take a bit to warm up, but it doesn't take that long.

    Ace hostel. The staff are fab, super friendly and helpful for anything you need (particularly Hudson, Romina and Carol) The beds are comfy with curtains for privacy, shared bathrooms are decent with warm showers and it’s very clean. Very homely feel with spaces to relax- chilled vibes not a party hostel but you’re still able to socialise.

    Good hostel in a safe location with an easy walk to Copacabana Beach, grocery stores, the metro, and restaurants. Staff were friendly and the hostel has excellent security. Bathrooms are plentiful and reasonably clean with an ensuite as well as shared showers and toilets for the floor. Hot water, good pressure but the showers tend to flood. Dorms feel dark and cramped but the rooftop space is a nice escape and you don't come to Rio to hang out in a hostel. Kitchen is tiny so plan to eat out.

    The real strength of this hostel is it’s very safe and close to Copacabana beach and Metro. There are nice common areas and decent breakfast. Staff also good people but could do more to publicise what’s happening in the city, eg markets, places to go out, and to bring travellers together as most people stuck to themselves. Lack of cooking facility is annoying and toilet flush system is weak, also AC in rooms is inconsistent. But overall a clean, secure, well maintained solid hostel in Rio.

    This was one of the only hostels with open beds for New Year’s Eve since I planned the trip about 1-2 months before New Years. It was severely over priced as I’m sure many other locations were for New Years. I was in a room for 8 people. The AC blasts all day which was nice since it was extremely hot out but ultimately ended up making me get a cold. Each bed has a wall lamp and plug as well as a locker (you need your own lock). There is WiFi in the building but works best if you are downstairs.

    Pretty bare minimum. I only stayed there because I was out of options. Though the crowd they get can be cool since they so a lot of advertising.

    There were no lockers for the available beds so two people in my room didn't have space for themselves (including me). And for some reason the AC was extremely cold the first day and on the second they didnt want to turn it on before 9pm, so whoever was resting during the afternoon had to be on the heat. Last, the showers have quite low pressure and the Wi-Fi can't reach the rooms.

    Staff handled reservation poorly. They couldn't find my reservation upon checking in despite me sharing my confirmation with them. They made mistakes on changes to my reservation and instead of reimbursing me for their mistakes, refused to. Would never recommend this hostel.

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
