    his is my second trip to Rio de Janeiro and I love Walk on the Beach hostel as much as I love Rio. The staff goes out of there way to create a family environment. My first time staying here in 2017, I was invited to an upstairs birthday party where I met plenty of amazing people from all over the world. The hostel is only a 5 minute walk to all the shopping and restaurants you can imagine. And the beach is very close as well. I consider this hostel my second home and cannot wait to come back!!!

    My experience in Rio would not have been as great as it was if I hadn't stayed at Walk on the Beach.I intended to stay 1 week but ended up staying almost 3 total! It is very social and the volunteer staff are amazing. The location is excellent as well. About a 5 minute walk to Copacabana and 10-15ish to Ipanema. The caipirinhas in the bar are great (shoutout to Mati). Also, be sure to do the Pedra de Gavea hike with Alexis! It is AMAZING!

    The volunteer Staff is awesome and have to put up with a bunch a crap from the hostel management. The atmosphere is nice, as it is in most places in Rio. I'm not a picky this is the worst hostel I've been. They are INFESTED with mosquitos and bed bugs. The whole place smells kinda funny. This place is so cramped. It seems like management only wants to provide you the cheapest experience possible. I'm pretty sure some prisons have better sleeping arrangements than here.
