The Beach House is a very good hostel right close to the Ipanema beach. The pool area is amazing, hammocks where you can rest after the beach or to cure a hangover. The new bar is cool with great drinks and a cool beer. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. I will be back.

We booked this hostel due to the good reviews on Hostelworld and great location. Although the house is beautiful and it is located in a wonderful area of Rio, the staff have serious attitude problems (the blonde girl who works behind the bar and the lady who serves breakfast in particular) and made us feel as though we had seriously...

Very hospitable hostel. Good rooms and nice outdoor environment and setting. Perfect location just minutes from the beach and surrounded by restaurants and shops. The staff were always happy to help with navigation and tips. Lively and happy environment with music playing all day. Would definitely recommend.

Positive side - Location. That is all. Negative side: My partner and I decided to book a private room on this hostel. It look pretty on their website but when we arrived the smell of dump was disgusting. Besides, the private room allocated to us was right by the swimming pool and the noise was really bad. That was right...

Can't explain how good this place is. Perfect location and it's got a pool which is pretty much unheard of for a hostle. Great friendly happy vibes all day. Can't even begin to say how great Marcos and Ulises were as hosts and as now new found friends. Always happy to help and will guide you to the best nights...

My first experience of a hostel - it was nice! Besides the resident druggie who was smoking at every minute of the day in the lobby (so uncomfortable to walk through his clouds), a great welcome. Very picturesque setup and fantastic location next to the beach and close to shops/sights! Also a very safe neighbourhood and safe hostel too However...

The location was perfect! Few streets from the beach, safe, very close to metro station and bus stops. Hostel was constantly cleaned. The atmosphere was fun for young people.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A few blocks away from the beach and located on the best area of Ipanema, Beach House, its staff and guests have been writing summer stories for more than ten years. Connecting cultures, receiving those who come from a distant place and introducing them to those who live around, here cariocas open their arms to present the taste of endless summer in Rio de Janeiro. The city heat mixes a lot of feelings into enough memories to miss it the whole year. This way, our stories build memories, feelings and friendship so deep and intense that they last a lifetime. The truth is that the sweet, salty taste of the beach make it worth all the other months for those who yearned the freedom of summer, even when it’s winter. Our blessed carioca land has the privilege to live summer for 365 days a year. Without hurry, you can stay and drink another beverage, because tomorrow will be a good day to go to the beach. This way, summer stories happened on January, during the carnival, on a weekend of May, during the Brazilian independence day in September, on the November nights and in all the other days of the year. What difference does it make if it’s Saturday or Monday when the sun waits for us with anxiety and the best parties are still to come? Being a scenario for all stories, in our beach house everybody gets together before the epic nights or by the pool, with feet inside the water and singing that beautiful well-known song. And the improvised foods – many times deliciously gourmetized? Suddenly, the waiter start to serve double of people, who snuggle and share all the stories already lived there. And, all of a sudden, someone can give the idea to climb a trail, to drink one more beer, and even an unexpected romance can begin. This way, hours passes by. More than a dozen stories join many others, and all of them being shared with the new friends. Beach House has been living all of this for more than ten years and it’s proud to be considered in Rio, Ipanema the house of summer stories. ... more   less
