Set in a two-story villa on one of Copacabana's quiet back streets, this nicely designed hostel offers good-value fan-cooled dorm rooms (that sleep three to 12 in each), though the metal, institutional-looking bed frames and thin mattresses lessen the appeal. It has a lounge and a small bar, and maintains a welcoming, low-key vibe.
With a fan, private lockers and shared bathroom facilities, all dormitories include bed linen for free. Laundry services are arranged.
Walk on the Beach Hostel is 100 metres from Nova Rio bus station, and 800 metres from Siqueira Campos subway station. Santos Dumont Airport is 10 km away.
