The location is fabulous: it's set in a converted two-story house with a beautiful pool and yard, just a short stroll to the beach. The rooms and bathrooms, however, could use some upkeep, and space is tight in the six- and nine-bed dorms (in the form of three-tiered bunk beds). Prices are higher on weekends.
Guests can visit the picturesque Sugar Loaf Mountain, which is just a 10-minute drive away or the famous Christ the Redeemer monument, which is a further 5-minute drive away.
Beach House Ipanema offers cosy rooms and practical dormitories that provide cooling and a private or shared bathroom. Guests can make use of the provided kitchen or relax in the lounge and watch TV.
Every morning a buffet breakfast is served, which offers a selection of fresh fruits, breads and sweets. After a day in the sun, guests can also enjoy a variety of cocktails from the outdoor bar.
Ipanema Beach House is only 5 km from Copacabana Beach. The popular district of Lapa is a 20-minute drive away and offers a lively nightlife and a variety of Samba houses to visit. Rio Sul Shopping Centre is just a 15-minute taxi ride away.
