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 mixed dorms that can hold 4, 6, and 12 guests (bunk beds/coed) as well as a dorm room for girls (10 regular beds).
All Dorms have electronic lock on door and individual lockers.
Private rooms are available for groups between 2 and 5 guests.
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, bathroom, 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 (extra mattress for a 3rd person), balcony, bathroom and air-conditioning.
Pura Vida Hostel is situated within walking distance between two 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 Beach with a fantastic view of the famous mountains of Dois Irmãos and Gávea!
To get to Pura Vida Hostel, there are 3 options: Bus, Taxi / Uber or Metro.
No matter how you come, the best way to reach our home is by Copacabana, through Rua Sá Ferreira.
The Hostel's address is Rua Saint Roman, number 20. Our house is the 2nd on the right, coming from Rua Sá Ferreira.

    What a wonderful experience. I would not stay anywhere else in Rio. If you are traveling by yourself and want to make friends and practice your Portuguese this is the place to go. Shout out to Amanda for being an amazing host.

    This is the best hostel that I have ever stayed at. The staff and the volunteers are amazing. It is a great place to have fun and make friends. Amanda went above and beyond to make sure that the experience was spectacular. If you are looking to go to fun parties, make friends, and practice your portuguese Pura Vida is the place to go. I will always remember my time there, and hopefully get to return someday.

    Great Hostel, unbeatable for the price, common space is lovely, there is a bar with great caipirinhas as well and 2 minutes walk from the beach. Stairs are little bit of a bummer if you are a smoker 🤣. Staff super friendly, Regis was absolute star, kudos to him for making me feeling welcome!

    27 Jul 2021
    Location was on a fairly noisy street at night which didn't help much with sleep, but wasn't tooooo bad. Facilities were simple and clean and so if you're balling on a budget this could be a good stop off for a coupe of days. Receptionists were nice and Regis was very helpful and friendly which made a big difference to my stay.
