I found this to be the only big chain hostel where it worked great to be a solo traveler! I felt welcome and included immediately and met so many cool people. The vibe is so friendly and social and it is clean and the staff is so on top of everything! This was a great hostel all around!!

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.
