From $20

Built in the beginning of the last century by a Polish embassador, the house was uniquely constructed and still holds the special details and archietecture reminiscent of a European castle.

We have collective dorms that hold 4, 6, and 12 people (bunk beds/coed) as well as rooms for 8 (regular beds/coed) and 10 people (regular beds/females only). Private rooms are available for groups between 4-6 people. Our chales are for a maximum of 2 people and include a queen-size bed and air-conditioning. All bathrooms are shared bathrooms with the exception of our chales, which include a private bathroom.

Pura Vida Hostel is situated within walking distance between two of the most famous beaches in the world. Less than a 1 minute walk lands you in front of Lifeguard Tower 5 (Posto 5) of Copacabana Beach and within 10 minutes, you will find yourself in Ipanema Beach with a fantastic view of the famous mountains of Dois Irmãos and Gavea!

To get to Copacabana, you can get a registered cab at any of the kiosks of the Airport or Central Bus Station. The landmark or point of reference for the taxi driver is Posto 5 and Rua Sa Ferreira. The address of the hostel is Rua Saint Roman street, number 20. The street is located off Rua Sa Ferreira, in between the main streets of Copacabana beach, Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana and Rua Raul Pompeia.
