Tupiniquim is not just a place to sleep, it is a experience, a dive into the unknown, Terra Incognita ...
Tupiniquim is about the experience of being in Brazil, our cook only makes regional brazilian food, our film selection has an emphasis for brazilian cult films, our music is selected among the best in Brazil, we call it "brasilidade" in portuguese and our goal is to make you feel that by the end of your stay.
Tupiniquim is also about quality. Given the few resources that hostels usually have we make the best out of them, our customer support level is unheard of ... think of Leonidas and his 300 Spartans, they were in another league compared to the Greeks of their times, so are we in hostel management. Of course, that does not mean we are by all means perfect, it means that we improve by the minute, we have been like that for the last 9 years. Read more

About Tupiniquim Hostel Rio de Janeiro
Perharps you are willing to stay on just another hostel full of europeans, americans, aussies and israelis ?? no ?? yes ?? ... what if you could stay in a place where 60 % of the guests are brazilians ?? then you would get a real experience WITHIN the hostel, wouldnt that be bloody cool ??
Man, half of the hostels in Rio are complete crap and most of the other half are just dumb-nothing-to-do-except-for-sleeping places ... so you think you are pretty smart by booking a place 5 reals cheaper ?? a place with triple bunks, 16 + people dorms, thin mattresses, lousy breakfast, no bar, no fun ??
We accept visa, mastercard and american express !!!
Free WIFI for all our guests
Free pool table
Free TV / DVD room
Free Lockers at each bed
Free Luggage Storage Room
Free Brazilian style breakfast: 08-10 am
But you see, the core of a hostel is not a beautiful and charming house (like ours), or plenty super-duper hot showers (which we have 13 of, in fact) or any of those welcome features ... The core is the people ... In this case the interaction between us, your brazilian hosts, and you ... We are here because of you ... Attention to detail and quality in every possible human aspect ... Command us ...

Please consider that only for those special dates and after you have made your Hostebookers Reservation (which is 12 %), we will contact you to further pay another 38 % (by credit card or Western Union Transfer) prior to arrival (unfortunately it has to be done after the initial reservation because we cannot do it within Hostelworld) ... also consider that this is non-refundable ... we take all these precautions because loads and loads of people ask for these specific periods and we cannot afford to have people 'not showing up'
