Solar Hostel Reviews

Solar Hostel is a big building located in the middle of Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). It has a big capacity of rooms, but sometimes they are so crowded. You can arrive at the hostel at anytime because it has twenty-four-hour reception.

The Location

The hostel is in the famous neighborhood of Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro. It's two minutes away from the beach. The neighborhood has a lot of shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. If you arrive in the main transit station of Rio de Janeiro, you can pick up a bus to arrive in the hostel (Troncal Two, Four, and Six). Also there's a metro station near the hostel. The area is really safe. Also is easy to visit the "Cristo Redentor" because the bus station of the monument is thirty minutes away on foot.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel has mainly dorm rooms, but for those who want more privacy they have private rooms. It has dorm beds with different capacities (six, eight, ten, and fifteen people). All the dorm rooms have bunk beds of three, and lockers. The private rooms have a capacity of two people settled in bunk beds. All the rooms have air conditioner and a fan. They give to the guests a key card to open the room and it closes automatically. All the rooms have a private bathroom with a sink, a toilet, and a hot electric shower.

Common Spaces

On the ground floor, you can find all the facilities. In the entrance there's the reception desk. Next to it there's the living/dining room with a couple of sofas and a couple of tables and chairs. The kitchen is next to the living room and it's really well equipped. Also there's a little library with some books that you can read during the stay. On the second floor there's a computer for all the guests. On the top of the building, there's a terrace but it's abandoned. Outside the main entrance there are a couple of tables where you can chill and drink something.


It's a really good place to stay because it's near the beach of Copacabana, it has a young atmosphere, and you are close to all facilities. From there, you can reach all the touristic places. They give you information about different tours. The Wi-Fi signal sometimes is weak.
