The staff is great!! Very helpful and nice, a good smaal cheap bar for early evening drinks (12 r for twi cocktails). Clean rooms and toilet. The rooms arent great, most of them dont have a window to the outside, so they miss some fresh air.

Great location; very close to metro. There is shopping and a few restaurants within walking distance, 5 min to copacaba beach. The hostel is beautiful and very accommodating, with breakfast, directions, keeping furniture in place and bathrooms clean.

Nice place to chill out and meet people. Good breakfast, clean rooms and toilets, dinner menus for less than 5 dollars which are pretty good. They have also a tv room where you can read and relax, book exchange and they play nice music in the loby :) The staff is nice and they speak good english.

This is actually not what you would consider like a party hostel but the vibe was amazing, travellers from south america, europe and many many australians trying to have a good holiday and time. I spent 6 nights with a couple of friends and we almost cried when we left out little house and family at el misti.

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.
