  • Best hostel I´ve ever stayed at. I was only planning on staying here for 5 days and ended up staying for 5 weeks! Cant say enough about the staff. They are all so sweet and caring and very knowledgable about Rio. They truly want you to have an amazing stay. Bedrooms and bathroom are nice and very clean. Air conditioning. Bar and lounge area upstairs are awesome (Pedro the bartender is the best) and help to create a wonderful, friendly, fun atmosphere. If your in Rio, this is your hostel!

  • Loved my time at Walk on the Beach hostel! Great location a few blocks from the beach, friendly and helpful staff and a great hostel bar to relax with fellow travelers. The hostel felt safe and was cleaned daily. I would definitely recommend staying here.

  • The location of this hostel is fantastic. It is 5 minutes walk from Copacabana Beach and is safe at all times of the day. There are lots of shops around for food, souvenir shopping and medical stuff. The rooms are a bit small and have three tiered bunk beds but the beds are comfy enough to sleep on. The hostel can get you some great things like city tour and hang gliding. Definitely check out the Favella Funk Party if you're there on Sunday nights!

  • Staff was very friendly and helpful! Hostel itself needs to fixing, rooms are tight and lockers are small. Lots of trust is needed because likely your bag will be just in your dorm. Bathrooms are tiny and showers are cold (however, with it being +30 C outside a cold shower isn't always bad). Overall I had a great stay at Walk on the Beach and met a lot of great people while I was there! :)

  • The staff is adorable as they help you with all problems/questions and provide you with tons of information about Rio and possible activities in this exciting city. Probably the best (free) breakfast I had so far in a Hostel! It is a rather small Hostel with insignificantly higher prices, but with it's superb location, it's great atmosphere and the super cool staff, the "Walk on the beach" is a definite recommendation for all Rio visitors. I had a great time here, thanks! Dorian from Berlin

  • Os armários foram pequena e tomou fechaduras muito específicos, que o albergue não tinha. I muito mais desfrutar albergues onde posso trancar todas as minhas coisas. Além disso, você só tem uma folha fina de um cobertor, e eu tive sorte que demos um cobertor térmico junto.

  • The beds were not quite confortable, but if you are going to a hostel, your expectatives shouldn't be so high. The ambiance was great, the hostel has a bar where you'll make great friends
