Pura Vida Hostel Rio de Janeiro Informations
Built in the beginning of the last century by a Polish embassador, the house was uniquely constructed and still holds the special details and archietecture reminiscent of a European castle. We have large collective dorms for 12 people (bunk beds/coed) as well as rooms that hold 8 (normal beds/coed)
If you want to get to the hostel as quickly and safely as possible, you can book a transfer with us! We will make sure you get picked up and brought straight to the hostel in a private car/taxi! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and pricing.
From the Airport or Bus Station:
You can take the bus called REAL Auto Onibus Premium to Copacabana. It's a blue bus and it costs around BRL$13. Be sure to tell the bus driver that you need to get to Copacabana, specifically Rua Sa Ferreira/Posto 5 at Copacabana Beach on Avenida Atlantica (the main street in Copacabana that runs alongside the beach). When you get dropped off, you will be less than 2 blocks away from the hostel. You could also take any marked cab and provide the address/location of Pura Vida Hostel to the driver.
From the Subway:
Make sure you are heading in the direction of Zona Sul -- Normally you would get off at metro station General Osorio, but it is currently closed due to construction. Thankfully we are about 4-5 blocks away from the next metro station Cantagalo (which is currently the last metro stop for Zona Sul). When exiting metro station Cantagalo, walk towards the beach on Rua Xavier de Silveira. When you hit Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana, take a right and follow the street until you get to Rua Sa Ferreira. Take a right on Rua Sa Ferreira and then take the next right on Rua Saint Roman. Walk up the hill (NOT ALL THE WAY UP) and the hostel is located on the right. There is a sign that says PURA VIDA. The house number is 20.
