I stayed there twice in the last three years, the staff was absolutely helpful and cool, I felt like I was at home, the location is great, near to the beach, my room was in perfect state and it is definitely a hostel to make a lot of friends. Muito obrigado por tudo !

Clean hostel. Staff very friendly. Great location if you want to stay in Copacabana. It's only three blocks away from the beach! It was expensive, however we stayed at New Year time so I assume there was a price hike.

Che Lagarto is definitely a great hostel. I was hosted there for 4 days during Olympics, then the hostel was crowded, but the staff was able to keep everything organized and with a good vibe. Location is excellent, a few blocks from the beach and subway station. At the same street there are bars, restaurants, supermarkets, bus station... All night...

Good things about the hostel: - good location close to Copacabana beach area - very nice and helpful reception staff (I especially liked the two of them who work afternoon shift) - not expensive Bad things: - no soap in most bathrooms - not every shower has hot water - sockets for charging phones are located only in one spot...

Hostel staff were very friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area. Very good english speakers. Can rent bikes from there or their other hostel further down in Copacabana (or you can rent them via an app in the area). They had no soap in the hostel for our entire stay which was a bit unhygienic....

An amazing friendly clean place to stay. I left another hostel because it wasn't nice and came here. I am so happy. Very close to the main hub of Copacabana. Vanessa couldn't have been more helpful. The place is clean and the showers and toilets work. Very happy bunny.

Def best hostel in Copa, I loved how everyone is so welcoming and friendly! I love hanging out in the lobby with the staff, especially Thiago, Jessica and Renata! They gave me advice on restaurants, bars and clubs. It's always a fun party in the lobby and I miss it so much! I'm coming back in December !

I had one day layover to spend in Rio before flying home to my country. I picked this one due to location and convenience but ended up regretting it. Pros: Easy to get to from the airports, close to the metro and the beach. Nice rooftop terrace, but it closes at 10, so you can't chill up there. Cons: No...

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.
