Great place to stay if you are in Rio. Walking distance from copacabana beach and metro. Staff makes you feel like home. Good breakfast. Beautiful viewpoint from the top of the hill. I stayed there twice and I will go back if I return to Rio! Thank you

My boyfriend and I booked the private room for the start of our travels. We were very happy with the hostel and staff. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful, plus they have pets! (A doggo, kitty, and parrot - Which is always a win for me). Hostel was clean and tidy and not too loud at night. It is a bit of a walk up a steep hill but after the second day you get used to it. If not though, there are motorcycle taxis that wait at the bottom of the hill and give people rides to the top for a few real. Very close to the beach and not far from a supermarket either. Would recommend :)

I spent a whole week in this place and it was really nice . Beautiful old house , very confortable and so close from the Copacabana beach. There is a kitchen with all the necessary to cook . I made some pancakes and the family of the hostel loved it 😁! The breakfast is included and that’s a really good one. The owner is really nice and the price is really interesting for the neighborhood compared to the others hostels of Copacabana. A really good place to go in Rio !!! And there is a papagaye bird very funny and so cute ! Gaspard (from France and Canada )
