    As my first hostel experience, I don't have much to compare it to. But I will say that Selina Copacabana definitely set the bar high for any future experiences. So much more charm and character than a regular hotel with excellent staff down in reception and up in the café/restaurant. They even provide temporary SIM cards which was my biggest concern after landing in Rio without one.

    Large property for a Selena. Stayed in a four person dorm, ensuite bathroom, comfortable bedding (that you have to make yourself), good privacy/light/charging/locker options for the beds. Across from the beach, coffee shop, and plenty of restaurants. Nice rooftop bar/restaurant as well (a little pricey).

    Decent hostel as close to Copacabana as you get. Would be nice if the rooftop bar was open later since the place lacks a social area. Staff + doorman in the lobby were very nice. Very limited space in the dorms, but all beds had curtains which is a huge plus

    Very Good

    This was our first stay in a Selina. The beds were very cramped as the locker sticks out, lost track of how many times I hit my legs off it trying to sleep. You also cannot sit up in your bed (I’m only 5’5) so my back was very sore by the end. The air-con was also very poor. They have a lovely cinema room with Netflix and Apple TV, a spacious kitchen and a library. The restaurant is very expensive and portions are tiny. You will find a better and cheaper meal along the front of the tourist traps on Copacabana beach and that is saying something.

    The location of the building is great. We were able to walk to most of our destinations. The facilities are also very nice, it is well tought and optimized. For the price that we paid, however, I still think that the rooms were very small and it was difficult to go around. Even though, the view and the food of the rooftop restaurant is absolutely stunning, the staff was really rude to us. Made us pay more than we ordered and acted in a reall ill-mannered way. Maybe because we are young...

    Completely overpriced. You pay big bucks and end up putting the bed linen on yourself in a room with 8 beds, where everybody else with some common sense would only put 4-5 beds in. Also found mould next to the super noisy A/C. The location is the only good thing about this place. Everything else they did was putting lipstick on a pig.
