Hostelworld says

Cabanacopa is set next to Morro de Sao Joao park, just a few minutes’ walk from Copacabana beach. This clean, friendly hostel offers a good balance of nightlife and quiet atmosphere, with an onsite bar open until around 10pm. It also has some nice little essential features, like a free and varied breakfast and plug sockets at each bed. Hostelworld guests tell us they’d stay here again and will recommend it to friends.

Put simply, this is the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. The whole building including the room itself smelled like pee and sweat. Everything was dirty and not well maintained. We booked a twin room with an ensuite bathroom in hopes that it would be nice, quiet and clean and got none of that and all that for the price of 200 euro per night. Please stay away from this place and save your money for another hostel as there are multiple in Rio which will cost you much less.

Don't stay here. I stayed in a dorm for a group tour and there was black mold on the walls, on the shower curtain and on all the wall fixtures. The room feels damp, and smells like so badly mold. I then booked an extra night in a private room which was just them putting me into a bunk bed room with nobody else even though I had booked my room months ago. Towels were rust stained. Staff was nice, breakfast was good, terrace is nice.

The staff were lovely and the location was good BUT the room, bedding and showers all had black mould, there was no airflow so the rooms smelt horrible, you could hear ever noise made in the hostel, the kitchen had VERY limited kitchen supplies making it difficult to make your own food.

CabanaCopa Hostel says

We're in a unique location near the beach, next to a park where you can see the jungle in the middle of Copacabana Beach. The nearest attractions are, of course, Copacabana Beach and the Sugar Loaf, but the one place that I recommend to guests is Copacabana Fort. I think this hostel is perfect for backpackers who want to stay in a good location at a budget price, or anyone else, although we don't allow children. For fun people like to play cards and pool, watch movies and socialise in the cinema lounge, have a drink at the bar, cook big meals in the kitchen or even cook a barbecue in the patio area. We also have some great extras like air conditioning and blackout curtains in most of the rooms.
