  • The staff was extremely nice, helpful, and energetic. They always had suggestions for things to do around the city. Breakfast was simple (bread, sliced meat and cheese, cake, fruit, juice, coffee, water). The front door locks automatically. The reception will buzz you in. The nighttime security is also friendly. Not a party hostel, but still has really great energy.

  • The Walk On The Beach Hostel is absolutely perfect for everyone who wants to stay in a clean and well organised hostel. The staff makes you immediately feel welcome and has a genuine interest in making your stay perfect. Because of the monitored entrance, I felt absolutely safe and I would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a room in Rio. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and never crowded. The staff and other guests invited me to several activities which were amazing!

  • The wifi in the hostel is named "Walk Family" and that is what it feels like to be here. It is a family!

  • Highly recommend this hostel to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, well located hostel with staff that is always there to help you. The hostel is very well mantained, the common areas and bathrooms are cleaned regularly. But what makes this hostel one of the best, if not the best i've ever stayed at, is the atmosphere and the kindness of everybody working there, they do care a lot and try to help you in any way. Big plus is the bar upstairs- great drinks and great way to meet travelers :)

  • Absolutely brilliant experience. Staff is not actually a 'staff'. They are your 'friends' whom you have not yet met.They would go that extra mile to make your experience a brilliant one. The location of the Hostel is very nice,close to all the sight seeing spots in the City including but not limited to Copacabana, Ipanema,Christ, the street market to buy souvenirs etc... If you stay here, one thing is for sure- You will definitely have a better than expected experience !
