Rio de Janeiro Hostels

Friendly and relaxed – hostels make the perfect base for nomads.

More than 1 million people last month said they'd recommend Booking.com to their family and friends.

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

Hotels That Guests Love in Rio de Janeiro
  • Fantastic hostel. Great common areas with plenty of cool places to sit and relax. Kitchen was nice and well equipped. Bathrooms were clean and never crowded. Rooms were good with big lockers to storage your stuff. Great location. Honestly nothing wrong with this hostel, one of the best I’ve stayed in! Good backpackers vibe

  • This hostel is in a supersafe neighbourhood. Botafogo is close to every higlight in Rio de Janeiro. Our lovely host knows a lot about Brasil and Rio de Janeiro. She was very very very friendly and and helped us every time. There was no private shower but the shared bathroom was excellent, superclean and the shower was amazing (hot and like a waterfall).

  • Good location a few blocks to the beach. I always felt safe walking to and from the hostel even at night. Great atmosphere in the common areas. Huge sized locker.The staff was really nice and helpful with everything, they are friendly and knowledgable, willing to help with anything you need! The hostel had a great offer of parties...the boat party was one of my highlights in Rio de Janeiro. They also have a great bar with double caipirinhas, to have a drink and get to know the other hostel guests.

  • Friendly hostel, nice communal area and garden space. Really good location in Ipanema and great place to meet fellow backpackers! Close to the metro and even closer to the beach!

  • Pretty much everything! Fantastic staff; great kitchen; good location near to the minibuses to Christ the Redeemer and near to Lapa (but still as safe as Rio can be); really clean; each bed has a plug socket, a lamp, a shelf and a locker underneath it; really sociable hostel, whilst not being a party hostel. Perfect for backpackers - even out of season.
