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.

We stayed here for 1 night transiting through Rio to get to Ilha Grande. We booked an Airport pick-up through Selina and an onward transfer to Ilha Grande. Both transfers went really, really smooth. Driver was waiting for us at the airport and second driver arrived and left bang on time. Really glad we booked Selina because I was a bit nervous about coming into Rio in the middle of the night. Amazing view of copacabana beach at breakfast. Liked the privacy curtain in the dorm bed a lot.

Great location and a lot of activities to join in on. Diego did a good job. However the receptionists were not helpful at all, almost looked annoyed when talked too and did not give me any introduction to the hostel when I arrived.

Pros: - great location - fun activities - felt very safe - was easy to meet people Cons: - dorm rooms were beyond small. No where to put your luggage and truly living on top of each other - cleaning staff come in singing, turning on all the lights, genuinely making as much noise as possible @8am on Saturday - staff we’re unresponsive to my messages leading up to our stay and this caused difficulties at check in - cold showers
