The name may only fit with the location of the place, but the hostel itself is just one to leave your bags, and get out, IF you find space for it in your matchbox room. the entry way is one of those colonial doors only opens to one side, when you are inside of the place you feel so trapped,...

I do travel a lot around the world and always stay in hostels and guesthouses (so I’m not spoiled) and this is a first time when I so disappointed. I won’t make lots of comments about the price as in Brazil everything is overcharged and you just have to accept this, but still it is too expensive for such place....

I've stayed at this place, because of the price and quite good location. The hostel was terrible! I've booked so called "deluxe room" with private bathroom: 8sq metres in total, no window, no place to put the suitcase (I had to keep mine in the bathroom), terrible bed, A/C only from 10 pm until 10 am, never cleaned-up, no wi-fi...

Barely bearable. Teeny tiny rooms for an astronomical price. My one piece of advice would be, whatever else you do at this hostel, do not book a tour through them. The tour operators appear to be crooks and will lie to your face. After booking a half day tour to see the main sights (and once again having paid a...

Well I have to say I now know what it is like to sleep in a kennel. We arrived at ´Best Rio Hostel´with high expectations as the flyer made the place look nice and it said it was new. After a very interesting check in with a tall young guy clearly not on this planet, we were shown to our...

Please change the name to "worst in Rio". It is the worst and at the same time the most expensive hostel I stayed in during my 3 month travelling in South America. It is owned by an israelian and most of the staff is not friendly, the rooms are dirty (cockraoches 3 times in the room) and when we left...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
