The staff were great, all very helpful, and the other guests were were all having a good time in anticipation of upcoming Carnaval. My only comment would be that the dorms are very small and crowded; you have to take it in turns to pack, unpack, even change clothing.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Bamboo Rio Hostel, situated near the world famous Copacabana beach, the liveliest and coziest place in the 'Marvelous City'.
Four years down the road allows us to look back and say that with each day guests soon become friends and we never hesitate in going out of our way to make their time with us unforgettable! What helps us stand apart is our staff: cordial and friendly, always ready to help in any way possible.
Our location is unbeatable! In Copacabana, just 3 blocks away from the most famous beach in the city and surrounded by bars, restaurants, ATMs, supermarkets and a subway station. Our hostel is located next to a mountain on a quiet street with 24h security. This way we combine the convenience and excitement of a busy metropolis and the peacefulness and security of our establishment with an incredible view of a forest. Here you will discover why Rio is known as the 'Marvelous City'.
We offer everything you should expect from a first rate hostel. All our rooms are well kept. There is also a variety of private rooms. Our facilities include a pool and a barbecue area, a fully equipped guest kitchen, our very own Boom Bar and the indispensible Mountain Lounge adjacent to the forest that surrounds the hostel.
If you're looking for a place to chill and relax, this is the place to be. We are located on a quiet and safe street where our noisiest neighbours are monkeys hanging around in the woods behind us. With luck you get to see other wildlife animals around as well.

My only comment would be that the dorms are very small and crowded; you have to take it in turns to pack, unpack, even change clothing. However if that dosn't bother you, and you don't mind waiting for the bathroom, the place offers very good value and location.
