Arco Verde Hostel
Reviewed 15 January 2013

I needed a place to stay in Rio for few days after New Years, and chose this, because every other place was overbooked.
It is located on a hill near the Rio Sul Shopping Mall in Botafogo; really close to Copacabana.
I slept in a triple bunk bed in a mixed dorm room. It didn't seem very clean, but at least I got clean sheets. The place had a great backpacker atmosphere, and it was easy to mingle with other travelers, which was important because I was traveling alone at that time. The staff was very friendly and helpful but but they did only speak a little or no English. Also they did not seem to know a lot about traveling in the state of Rio de Janeiro or the rest of Brazil, which was a huge minus.

I went to Rio for a conference, I visited the site of the hostel, I paid half share of hosting, but when I arrived and saw all dirty, disorganized and broken, rushes out and went looking for another hostel to stay. Simply terrible, the house of horror.

It was a nice hostel but too much mosquitos and the dog makes noise when someone knock the door.
The people from the hostel were very friendly for everything and the location is pretty good, close to Pao de Acucar and the beaches. You can walk like 3 or 4 blocks to go the Copacabana`s beaches and the main avenues. You also can see the beach from the hostel.
