Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

Need a top quality hostel in Rio de Janeiro? we are all about giving you an authentic experience: sun, sand and sexy samba await you here and at Tupiniquim we can make it happen …
Travelling solo or rocking up in a crew we've got the perfect dorm or private room for you and a legendary rooftop bar onsite with a marvellous view of the Jesus Statue!

Tupiniquim is about the experience of being in Brazil, our cook only makes regional Brazilian food, our film selection has an emphasis for Brazilian cult films, the music that we play is selected among the best in Brazil, we call it 'brasilidade' in Portuguese and our goal is to make you feel that by the end of your stay.

But above all our hostel is all about quality. We don't BS you here: you get clean facilities, bathrooms and linen. This is not a place where you'll be mosquito bitten, where you'll find roaches, bedbugs, or whatever. There are no overbookings or dumb receptionists here. We don't overcharge you like so many hostels in Copacabana and Ipanema do. But also we are not dirty cheap and thus incapable of offering decent services. You'll get the best bang for your buck here, that IS a promise.

I mean, are you really willing to pay up to double the price so you can stay in some dumb-dirty hostel just because it is like 100 meters nearer Ipanema beach ?? ... we are at a 7 min. bus ride from the beach which is at the bottom of the Sugar Loaf Mountain (it is called the Red Beach). Between the Jesus Statue and the Sugar Loaf, and next to Copacabana, we are on the best central location. Near every major tourist attraction.

Perhaps you are willing to stay on just another hostel full of Europeans, Americans, Aussies and Israelis ?? ... what if you could stay in a place where 60 % of the guests are Brazilians ?? then you would get a real Brazilian experience starting at the hostel, wouldn’t that be awesome?

My friend, half of the hostels in Rio are complete crap and most of the other half are just dumb-nothing-to-do-except-for-sleeping places ... so you think you are pretty smart by booking a place 5-10 reals cheaper ?? a place with triple bunks, 12 + people dorms, no air conditioning, thin mattresses, lousy breakfast, no bar, no fun ??

We have rooms for all kinds of needs, I am pretty sure there is one that will fit you perfectly:

☛ You want to come with your family, parents or kids ?? Private rooms that can accommodate 1 to 4 people are perfect for you.
☛ You want to come with a small group of friends ?? A quadruple private is hands down your best choice.
☛ You are a girl and you are old school, or have a jealous boyfriend or just want to feel more comfortable among ’sisters’, we have a very nice 6-people girls only room :)
☛ You are the poorest guy on earth ?? Don’t worry, we have 8-bed dorms that are pretty cheap and still have all our free services.
☛ You do not want to deal with lots of people but do not have the money to pay a private ?? our 3-people mixed dorm is almost like a private room.
☛ You want the best cost/benefit, not a private, but not an overcrowded mixed dorm ?? We have 6 and 8 people dorms.

We accept all debit and credit cards:

Debit Cards: Visa Electron, Maestro.
Credit Cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diner’s Club.

All our rooms (except for two 6-people shared bathroom dorms) have their own bathroom inside the room (hence ensuite) and include the following facilities free of charge:

☛ Air Conditioning from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
☛ Wi-Fi all over the hostel, also within the rooms (50 Mbps speed)
☛ Linen ( Pillow with pillowcase, bedsheet and a blanket)
☛ Security lockers (they require a padlock)
☛ Breakfast (sandwich, cake, fruit, juice, tea, coffee & milk) from 8 to 10 a.m.

Besides that we have many other services, most of them for free:

☛ 24 hour Reception
☛ Free Pool Table & Bar service, open 24/7: water, soda, beer, caipirinha, etc …
☛ Open terrace with a view of Christ the Redeemer open from 7 a.m. ‘till 10 p.m.
☛ Open kitchen for our guests to prepare their own food (we don't have a fridge)
☛ TV room with a super 54” screen: Home Theater, Netflix and a selection of more than 1300 selected films, all of this for free …
☛ We have a place for you to wash your clothes by hand and dry them
☛ Rent (R$ 1 per day) or buy (R$ 20) a 30 mm padlock to use in our lockers
☛ Luggage storage room (in case you have already checked out and want/need to hang around)
☛ No minimum or maximum stay (except for special events such as New Year's Eve or Carnival)
☛ No lockout or curfew.

Central location to all major attractions:
☛ 4 min. subway (one station) to Copacabana Beach.
☛ 10 min. subway (4 stations) to Ipanema Beach.
☛ 12 min. subway (5 stations) to all the Historical Downtown of Rio.
☛ 15 min. bus to Lapa, Domestic Airport (Santos-Dumont), Lagoa, Botanical Garden and the Sugar Loaf Mountain.
☛ 25 min. bus to the Statue of Christ the Redeemer.
☛ 30 min. subway (12 stations) to the Maracanã Stadium.
☛ 35 min. subway (9 stations) to Barra da Tijuca Beach
☛ 40 min. bus to the Central Bus Station (Rodoviária)
☛ 50 min. bus or taxi to the International Airport (Galeão)
☛ And of course: Uber is always available and pretty cheap everywhere in Rio :)

Specific policies for special events such as New Years Eve, Carnival, Rock in Rio, etc...

☛ Minimum Stay: 5 nights (3 for New Years Eve)
☛ Payment Method: credit card
☛ Cancellation Policy: Non Refundable in all cases
☛ No-Show Policy: It will be charged the remaining due at check in.
☛ Standard Rate policy: 50% in advance will be charged after your booking. If cancelled 7 days or less before check in the other 50 % will be charged as well
☛ Non-Refundable Rate policy: 100% in advance will be charged after your booking.

So even if you choose Free Cancellation, and because of the special dates, there are no refunds, ok?

After your booking is confirmed by, you will be contacted to proceed and arrange the payment method. Failure to complete the payment in 5 working days will result in cancellation of your booking. Unfortunately it has to be done after the initial reservation because we cannot do it within Hostelworld Also consider that this is non-refundable: we take all these precautions because loads and loads of people ask for these specific dates and we cannot afford to have people 'not showing up’.

    Had the best time in this hostel. Really got to know the Brazilian culture because of Alex. He is a very nice guy and will help you with everything. I learned more about the brazilian culture after 1 hour talking with him than the 5 days i was already in Rio. Would definitely come back to this hostel. If youre looking for a nice and cozy hostel, you should go here. It is an authentic place that really helps to get to know the Brazilian culture. PS: Alex makes the best caipirinha

    Hi Alex, Gabrie Once again i’d like to thank both of you and all your staff for making my stay during carnaval unforgettable. It must be akward to be working when everybody else is partying. But all of you are professionals and did a great job. I thought it exeptionally kind that you invited me to the family blocco and all the info you gave about the meaning and importance of samba in Brazilian culture. Botafoga is a very nice neigbourhood. You’ve chosen a great location for the hostel.

    I really enjoyed my stay here! The best thing about Tupiniquim Hostel is the WhatsApp communication! Furthermore, the WiFi works perfect and it is a good hostel to get to know others. I was travelling alone for the first time, but I never was completely alone.
