Only two hostel chains in Rio are located both in Copacabana and Ipanema and we are one of them. As pioneers in the hostelling business in Rio, the Wave Hostel is known as a traditional brand. Perfect for low-budget travellers looking for the best cost/benefit option, we have the same relaxed atmosphere in a nice house.
Run by independent travellers who have visited more than 20 countries, the Wave Hostel certainly knows what backpackers need. We facilitate access to beautiful spots both within the city and off the beaten track with services like city tours, group transfers to football matches at MaracanÃ£ Stadium, surfing tips or surfing lessons, tandem flights, tips for the nightlife and much more…
Also very convenient for surfers willing to ride some waves, we are in walking-distance to Arpoador beach, one of most consistent breaks in the city.
We offer the best and cheapest price for dorm rooms in a maximium 6-bed dorm!

Travel Desk/Travel Info
From the airport/bus station:
Take the bus called Leblon from outside the terminal. The name of the bus company is REAL. It will cost you some R$5 and will take approximately one hour.
Ask the driver to drop you at Rua Miguel Lemos at the beach avenue. Walk two blocks through Rua Miguel Lemos, cross two streets and take the left at the third one - Travessa Cristiano Lacorte (before the a bus stop - there's a sign at the corner saying Wave Hostel).
You can also take a taxi (R$75) from outside the terminal but give preference to the ones registered by the airport, with "kiosks" inside the arrival lounge. They also take payment in advance with your credit card. This avoids surprises on the cost and saves you some cash right in the beginning of the trip.
