finding hotel/hostel in Copacabana without reservation


We want to visit Copacabana at the end of the month. We are wondering if it is better to find a hotel/hostel after we got off the Copacabana bus? Would there be lots of hotels near centeral bus stop with better price there if we go directly? Or you can't really tell and it takes lots of time?

Also, is it safe area near the central bus stop?

Generally, I didn't think Copacabana was unsafe. I had no problems with touts or cheats. There are lots of hotels to choose from but I am not sure if there would be a difference between booking beforehand or if you go directly. If you do not have much luggage, it would be a good idea to go there and look around for a good hotel (in terms of location). Choose one with a view of the lake.
