The Crab Hostel
Located in Ipanema, only 30 meters from the beach and 15 minutes from Copacabana and Leblon Beaches, the Crab Hostel was born in the heart of the most charming neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro, known worldwide by the immortal song 'The Girl from Ipanema”.

Founded in June 2003, and since then opened all year long, the Crab Hostel is managed by people from Rio de Janeiro and provides brand new installation and a never before seen infrastructure in this sort of accommodation. It is the right choice for backpackers who want to meet other travellers, exchange information and tips, relax at the roof or even chat in the dorm room. And all rooms come with bathroom, fan and air-conditioning.
