Walking distance to bus station ( btw, buses were also absolutely safe - ask Bruna at the reception, or any others there! ). Staff was amazing - so friendly and witty and fun. Helped us with...

There is a bus station across the road for Ipanema and just 10 minute walk to other bus station. It is 10-15 minute walk to Copacabana beach and area, the walk is fairly...

Great Place to stay. Good Value, nice friendly and helpfull staff and clean and big rooms. We did meet alot of nice people there as well, but it is more suited for the couples than the Partyseeker. Good planned activities and perfect management. I would come and stay here again any time!

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.
