Hostelworld says

The most highly rated feature of Walk On the Beach Hostel is the staff, who ?are very friendly and talk to you like a friend rather than a customer? and are ?very good about always making sure that the guests know what there was to do in Rio each night?, according to Hostelworld guests. This hostel has good security and is located near Copacabana beach as well as several markets, buses and the metro. We like their onsite bar, where it?s easy to meet other travellers.

Walk On The Beach Hostel says

What makes us different from other hostels is that we provide a home-away-from-home experience. We know our guests by name, we know who they are and we know where they are from. Our focus is on providing the best customer service. We provide our guests with all the info they need to make the best of their stay in Rio. I usually send people to visit Sugar Loaf Mountain or the beaches, depending on what time they arrive and what the weather looks like. We're also close to Copacabana Beach (in three minutes) and Ipanema Beach (in 15 minutes). I think this place is ideally suited for easy-going independent backpackers looking for a chilled hostel where they can meet fellow travellers, make new friends and have fun in Rio. We don't cater towards any particular age group but mainly our guests are aged between 21 and 26. Most of them socialise in the common areas and then venture out on trips and tour together or meet up at the hostel bar for a few drinks before checking out the nightlife.
