Property Description

Located among swarms of locals and travellers, gorgeous beach scenes, and some of the best local fashion and furniture stores in Rio, Selina Copacabana is the perfect spot to experience the best of this non-stop neighbourhood.

After breakfast on-site, walk over to the Copacabana beachfront. For the ultimate local experience, head to the spot between Barão de Ipanema and Xavier da Silveira to join swarms of surfers and bodyboarders catching waves at one Brazil's best beach breaks.
Culture more your thing? Back at Selina, join a tour to Copacabana Fort, Morro do Leme or the Sugar Loaf and Christ. Watch the sunset at Arpoador (do not forget your camera!), or grab a drink at our bar before taking to the streets to enjoy Copacabana’s around-the-clock party scene.

On-site features include a cinema, library, common kitchen, co-work space, beach-front restaurant, and a rooftop bar with gorgeous sea views.

Couldn't have asked for anything more from the Selina Copacabana location. I had an issue and the staff solved it with so much grace and professionalism, it truly amazed me. Gabriel at the front desk went above and beyond with his hospitality and good-nature, making every guest feel like a friend. DJ was excellent, showing genuine care for each individual, and the manager, Diego, offered a solution that couldn't have been more generous and accommodating. You are all spectacular!

Totally overpriced hostel. Dirty room, bathroom and kitchen was chaotic and not clean at all. Staff was friendly and I saw cleaners trying to mop up the kitchen but I suppose with so many people there it's hard. Would not recommend Selina for any travller looking for a hostel where you can cook, work and have a bit peace and quiet. Good for youngsters looking for party.

I was here for Carnaval so my experience was exclusive to that. The pricing was fairly outrageous even for Carnaval. Besides that, rooftop was awesome. Had a security guard at the door which felt safe. right across the street from the beach so great location. They didnt really organize any activities to facilitate an atmosphere but maybe that was because of carnaval. Facilities were pretty good aside the shower curtain in my room being gone randomly and having to wait over an hour for another.
