Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

This property does not have elevators.

Optional extras

Continental breakfast is offered for an extra charge of BRL 15 per person (approximately)

Ipanema Beach Hostel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Four Nights Ipanema
I stayed there for four nights. The social atmosphere is excellent, but for one that actually wants to sleep at night it's not the best option. Party noises continue probably until 3am, even with earplugs I still couldn't sleep. Also the rooms are so cramped. If it weren't for the friendly staff and free drinks from 8-9pm I would not have been happy at all with any aspect of my stay.

Nice location, staff and reasonable price :)
I liked the location and the hostel! Sadly the bathroom had an issue.. and when I was charged extra cause my sis joined me in the private room that I wasnt really informed about and was told upon check out but i didnt really care much as I was rushing to head out and catch a flight. Later on I realized that was another R$80++ more and I didnt get an extra mattress for it or a bigger room. But anyway, the staff in total are nice. Food breakfast was alright for us, simple but really good enough to get going and I liked it personally. :) you get to toast your bread, have a cup of hot chocolate, cereals, yummy fruits, etc. i loved the location it's very close to the beach. Safe! Walk around for shopping. We had to take our stuff 3 large suitcases up but we survived. Theyre working on the elevator.. it's clean nice and new. They need to have the bathroom/toilet fixed. I was gonna stay for a night and extended for another night and had to endure the smell and flush problems the entire stay.. i informed them though. I wasnt around the whole stay so it was alright for me. I dont mind staying again I just hope I was properly informed prior about the addtl charges I only realized when I was on the flight out. Balcony is good too for the private room! :)
