Neighbourhood
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.

I stayed there for 4 days. Loved it. Great location, near the metro and the beach. Plus the staff is really willing to make your stay a great one. I'll definitely stay again there next time I'm in Río.

The hostel is really well located, one block away from subway station Siqueira Campos. It has a supermarket one block away, and it's close to the beach at Copacabana. The space feels a little cramped, there is no outside space except for the tiny entrance to the hostel. If you
