Accommodation Brazil Rio de Janeiro Rio Backpackers

Rio Backpackers

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Warmly and friendly hostel, a welcome caipirinha drink, stay 10 nights and get the next night for free, free wi-fi in lobby and rooms, Capoeira shows, and more... (see terms below).

Located in a beautiful and big 3 storey house from the 1940s which was redesigned by hostel owner/architect. It is just four blocks from Copacabana Beach in a quiet cobblestone street set up at the foot of Cabrito hill between Ipanema and Copacabana. Either a short walk or a quick cab/bus ride or metro will take you too many day-time and night-time entertainment options.
