Pura Vida Hostel Rio de Janeiro
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.

Directions to Hostel:
Personal Car/Taxi Transfer provided by Pura Vida Hostel:
If you want to get to the hostel as quickly and safely as possible, you can book a transfer with us! We will make sure you get picked up and brought straight to the hostel in a private car/taxi! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and pricing.
From the Airport or Bus Station:
You can take the bus called REal Auto Onibus Premium to Copacabana. It's a blue bus and it costs around BRL$13. Be sure to tell the bus driver that you need to get to Copacabana, specifically Rua Sa Ferreira/Posto 5 at Copacabana Beach on Avenida Atlantica (the main street in Copacabana that runs alongside the beach). When you get dropped off, you will be less than 2 blocks away from the hostel. You could also take any marked cab and provide the address/location of Pura Vida Hostel to the driver.
From the Subway:
Make sure you are heading in the direction of Zona Sul -- Normally you would get off at metro station General Osorio, but it is currently closed due to construction. Thankfully we are about 4-5 blocks away from the next metro station Cantagalo (which is currently the last metro stop for Zona Sul). When existing metro station Cantagalo, Walk towards the beach on Rua Xavier de Silveira. When you hit Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana, take a right and follow the street until you get to Rua Sa Ferreira. Take a right on Rua Sa Ferreira and then take the next right on Rua Saint Roman. Walk up the hill (NOT ALL THE WAY UP) and the hostel is located on the right. There is a sign that says PURA VIDA. The house number is 20.
