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.

Very good hostel with simple sleeping accommodations and nice living area. Very friendly staff that helped us with everything from booking tours to helping us find things in the area. The location was very good, only 5 minutes walk from Copacabana.
