For being honest this is the best hostel where I've been, people are awesome (the best manager ever,) team was pretty cool, volunteers were amazing everybody in the same travelling vibe. The hostel its super nice and located in a great neighbourhood! I made some new friends and fell in love with Rio... ill come back. Thanks, Ipanema Beach Hostel.

The hostel is amazing. Its more of a hotel vibe than hostel. I met beautiful people. Im talking about the staff.

Foi uma das experiências mais prazerosas que tive. O Fellipe é um ótimo anfitrião, o ambiente faz com que nos sintamos em casa. Não tenho do que reclamar, só agradecer!

Os motivos pra ficar aqui são inúmeros: além de bem localizado, fiquei impressionada com a organização e a atmosfera do hostel. O staff é um amor e fizeram de tudo pra que eu me sentisse em casa desde o início! Eles super respeitam o voluntário, o trabalho é leve e bem distribuído e cumprem exatamente com o combinado: descontos no bar, free caipirinhas, cozinha exclusiva, festas free com bebidas inclusas, comissões e um plus: o Fellipe, dono do hostel, dá uma garrafa de Sky ou Gin uma vez por semana! Pra quem quiser passar um tempo no Rio, essa com certeza é a melhor opção. <3

About the host

Our location could not be better ! We are in Ipanema , in the south of the wonderful city and IN THE SAME block from the beach that inspired one of the most famous songs in the world where you can see firsthand the setting sun most applauded Brazil.
