Property Description

Built in the beginning of the last century by a Polish embassador, the house was uniquely constructed and still holds the special details and archietecture reminiscent of a European castle.

We have collective dorms that can hold 4, 6, and 12 people (bunk beds/coed) as well as a dorm room for girls (10 regular beds).
All of them with electronic lock at the door and individual lockers.

Private rooms are available for groups between 2-6 people.
Of these private rooms for groups, our best room is our deluxe suite (Deluxe 5 Bed Private) which can fit a group of 5.
The room comes with air-conditioning, fan, small kitchen with microwave, Cable TV, and small fridge.

Our private chalets (Deluxe Double Bed Private) are a great option for 1, 2 or 3 guests. The room includes a queen-size bed and air-conditioning.

All bathrooms are shared bathrooms with the exception of our chalets and deluxe suite, which include a private bathroom.

Pura Vida Hostel is situated within walking distance between some of the most famous beaches in the world.
Less than a 1 minute walk lands you in front of Lifeguard Tower 5 (Posto 5) of Copacabana Beach and within 10 minutes, you will find yourself in Ipanema and Arpoador Beach with a fantastic view of the famous mountains of Dois Irmãos and Gávea!

We are 5 min away from Metro Station (General Osório - Exit D) and from the main bus lines. We have easy access from our house to all Rio points of interest.

To get to Copacabana, you can get a registered cab at any of the kiosks in the airport or central bus station. The landmark/point of reference is Posto 5 and Rua Sa Ferreira. The address of the hostel is Rua Saint Roman street, number 20. The street is located off Rua Sa Ferreira, in between the main streets of Copacabana beach, Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana and Rua Raul Pompeia.

Latest Review

" Great location, 1 block from the beach. 2 supermarkets less than 3 minutes away. Rooms are a bit small, but common spaces are very spacious. Equipped kitchen, however, not very organized. The staff is kind and very helpful. "
