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.

    A very quirky place, very social, very clean with nice staff! I stayed in a private room and in a dorm, both were clean and nice! Very helpful staff, Mirela even took us on a favela tour which felt very safe and nice as she knew people there! Very nice stay, would stay again!

    Would definitely stay here again. Great location so close to Copacabana Beach & Ipanema. Don’t be put off by the favela comments (it’s a long road that leads to a favela, but you have no need to go that way!), the hostel is in a good location. Very friendly/helpful staff and clean/comfy rooms. The music could be a bit too loud at night but didn’t bother me as heavy sleeper

    Friendly staff who were very welcoming and organized nights out and daytime hikes or trips to the beach, Karroll was a great guide. There's a fun outdoor bar and seating area which live music some nights. Big dining area and kitchen. Short walk to Copacabana and on a hill that has a very local feel.

    Pura Vida is the dream! Great hostel with good vibes every evening and a good location close to the beach (but far enough away that you can get some cheaper and better food ahah). The staff are lovely, Jackson and Augustine particularly really helped us out. Would definitely recommend.

    If you stay here then just make sure that your room doesn't face the bar. I arrived to Rio a bit sick so I really needed the sleep and asked to be switched. The staff kindly obliged and after that I had a very good rest throughout my time in Rio. I also like that it's so close to the beach, grocery stores, and ATM machines.

    Good atmosphere and excellent location but definitely room for improvement. The wifi was pretty bad and there were a couple of powercuts. No proper AC just one fan in our room, it was on 24hr though(except the power cuts). Our bathroom was nice and big but there were random bags of cement or something, looked a bit like a building site. But despite all of this the hostel was nice enough and I'd stay again :)

    Decent place to spend a few days. It was fairly low price so it wasn't a 5 star hotel but it'll do. There was a mix up with my bed in the middle of the stay but once the staff realized this, they addressed it swiftly and in a very professional manner. They also have events planned during the stay which the guests can stay at and that was very helpful.

    Great atmosphere from both the guests and the staff. They organize tours and parties. The vibe at pura vida was really chill and everyone was friendly. It's close to the beach and the metro. The only downside is that it is at the bottom of a favela. The second night there was a shooting at around 5am. But besides that if you go out late in a group and look after yourself you should be fine.

    The location of this hostel was excellent - right by the entrance to a favela and minutes walk to copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Nice communal area and relatively friendly staff. However, we wouldn’t recommend this hostel again. Very dirty rooms - sheets were given to us with fresh stains on them, which the staff claimed was ‘normal’. We didn’t have AC and had only one fan in the room which pointed in one direction. The communal bathroom and toilets were really poor and constantly blocked.

    Has the potential to be great but the bathrooms are not on the same floor as the bedrooms (for guys) and they also smelt really badly of ammonia when I was there. The super-friendly and welcoming staff made up for the grumpy older woman who was on reception when I arrived.
