Property Description

Copa Roots Hostel is a brand new venture located in the world famous neighbourhood of Copacabana. We want our guests to experience everything Rio has to offer, and aim to give them all the help they need in that matter. Our staff is well versed in Rio's history and culture and we love to share everything about the city with the guests. Our hostel has a big lounge on the third floor, with a nice veranda, pool table, bar, barbecue grill, guitar: our aim is to make our guests interact with each other, with the owners and the staff, so we can enjoy each other's company! Besides all that, we host events every weekend so our guests can relax and have a good time, with drinks and good local food. A guest should choose to stay in Copa Roots if they want to enjoy everything Copacabana has to offer while also making new friends and connections during their sojourn!

Although Copacabana is a busy and bustling neighbourhood, our house is located on a safe and quiet private street called Travessa Santa Leocádia, and is only 400 meters from the subway station (Cantagalo), as well as 800 meters from Lagoa (Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon) and 600 meters from the famous Copacabana beach. Therefore, our guests can go to any part of Rio with ease, get to the beach in less than 10 minutes and enjoy the view and facilities located in Lagoa, such as sports courts, a huge bicycle path, bars and restaurants. Our house has quite a bit of history to it as well, being used from the late 80s until the early 2000s as the headquarters of famous Brazilian singer Marisa Monte's Production Company.

All of our rooms are cozy and clean. We have a small, economic private room on the first floor, four mixed bedrooms on the second, along with a bigger private room and a six bed bedroom for women only. On the third floor, besides the bar and lounge, there's a four person private bedroom, with a double bed and a bunk bed. Most of our rooms are equipped with air conditioning units, there's cable TV on two of the three private rooms and our decoration is simple and clean: just like a family home.

    Bedrooms are basic but nice. It's up a slight hill but nothing too bad. Staff were really nice and friendly. One of the best things about this hostel is if you go to breakfast early enough to you get to see the little monkeys come right up to be fed.

    good location-few blocks from the beach, safe area with lots of shops nearby and a subway but the hostel is midway of a steep-ish hill (with steps)...tough after a night out or with your backpack as cars don't go up it! staff were friendly-some had better English than others. the rooms were clean enough. the bathroom wasn't great but it was cleaned daily and decent enough. wifi was very sporadic. breakfast was ok - filling and great if on a tight budget. atmosphere was ok but people not chatty

    The staff were absolutely amazing, Alejandro saved us 300£ by helping us get our flight money back! The others were also super friendly and lovely and some of the best staff we’ve come across. We stayed during carnival which made the price super expensive but otherwise its a great hostel for meeting people and enjoying copa cobana. The sheets didn’t feel too clean but our room had aircon which was great. Its near a great supermarket and the metro which was handy. Breakfast simple but effective

    Copa roots was a great hostel to stay. The staff were friendly. There were lockers with keys to use (good for me as I had no padlock) The kitchen and bathrooms were pretty dirty but the atmosphere was fun :):)

    Very Good

    Very good location and nice staff but the rest didn't impress me, especially for the price I paid...maybe because I was staying during the carnival. I also experienced some Health&Safety issues: some electricity wall sockets were missing plastic covers, and the fan was too close to my bunk bed (I was on the top), so when I was moving in the dark at night my hand was caught by it and I had a deep cut on my knuckle! This ruined my stay because I could not swim for few days :(((

    COCKROACHES in the room. I don't recommend to stay there for any price. We booked a private double bed. Area is easily accessible from metro but hostel is not well marked (no sign/hostel name). Looks like some people live there all the time. No atmosphere at all. Except that we have received dirty towels, old bunk in a very small room and moisture in the bathroom. They keep trash behind room and at the morning we woke up and found the cockroaches on the floor. Generally not worth staying.
