#2 of 1 069 Speciality lodging in Rio de Janeiro

Hey =)

We are Ipanema Beach Hostel’s team, a staff whose main goal is to ensure a lodging that is worthy of the best hotels, but without all that seriousness and loneliness found in them.

No, no. Here, all the time, through our services of shared dorms, suites, living areas and tours, we have hospitality as the core of our work.In order for you to leave Rio a little bit more “carioca” (person from Rio). That’s because, as Fernando Sabino, a writer from Minas Gerais, defined well:

“Carioca, as we know, is a state of mind: of someone who, even though was born in any other part of Brazil (or the world), lives in Rio de Janeiro and fill the streets of the city with life.”

We hope to welcome you soon, but before, how about knowing us a little more?

If you’re traveling solo this is the place to go! I stayed 3 times at Ipanema Beach Hostel. THAYANE were very friendly helped me with my bags and checked me in. Later on she introduced me to her friends and we went party at Leblon. Whenever I’m in Rio I’m always staying at the hostel! There’s a bar and a restaurant downstairs AND a pool table!!!!! The property is located only one block from the beach!!! And 5 min walking from the biggest mall in Leblon! The rooms are very comfortable both share and en-suite, Melissa the manager are always there to help you! Ipanema beach hostel is the place to go in Rio !!! Don’t miss it.

Oh my god the women here are another level. If you want to stay anywhere on a trip to Brazil make sure you stay at this hostel and you will not be disappointed. I stayed around the corner and immediately changed my hostel. Free drinks and the most unbelievably beautiful women in the world. What more could you want
