About CaipiHostel

Please note: all prices are hi member ones. If you don't have a membership card, an additional fee of 5 BRL per night will be charged upon arrival. It's not because we don't love you!

Welcome to the best hostel in the world!!! Well…maybe not yet! But that’s our goal!! And we’ll go above and beyond to make it happen!!!
Things you should know before coming here:
• This is a backpacker hostel and we praise the backpacker lifestyle. So, we chose to offer awesome facilities for free and a cheap price for the stay. All rooms are the same: 6 bunk beds (12 people), with spring matress, big individual drawer and bed light, wi-fi and security cards for each room.
• We have air conditioning everywhere (in the rooms from 10pm to 10am) and a great common area with a happy hour bar, tv and a lounge area for smokers. We are really serious about having fun and sleeping. This means that after 11pm, the party must go on in the streets! Guests who do not respect this, will be invited to leave.
• We are in Lapa: a insane place with street parties, historical buildings, loads of bars and restaurants and amazing people from around the world; but it’s not a wealthy neighbourhood and you well see the real side of Rio, not just the postcard picture!
• We’re not beside the beach, which means you’ll see more locals walking in the streets during the day, not only tourists. You can get there easily by bus (25min) or subway (20min); and what you spend to go there, you’ll save when you walk to the bars at night.
• Remember: we only accept CASH! And the payment must be at the check-in. There are several ATMs on our street and the Police Central is in front of us. Read our terms and conditions too.
• If after all, you decide to come: Congratulations!! You just signed up for one of the greatest tripping experiences at the best soon-to-be hostel of the world.
