We are part of Hostelling International Network, therefore the prices that are being offered on this site for the collective dorms are valid only if you are a HI member, otherwise you could become a member by purchasing the HI membership card with us or to pay a difference of R$ 10 depending on the type of room (R$ 40 if it is during special dates such as Carnival). If you pay by Paypal there is an extra 5 % fee.
Rio de Janeiro has so much to offer that we honestly think that you could use our help.
Tupiniquim is not just a place to sleep, it is an experience, a dive into the unknown, Terra Incognita …
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.
Tupiniquim is also about quality. Given the few resources that hostels usually have, we make the best out of them, our customer support level is unheard of ... think of Leonidas and his 300 Spartans, they were in another league compared to the Greeks of their times, so are we in hostel management. Of course, that does not mean that we are by all means perfect, not in the slightest all, it only means that we try to improve by the minute, we have been like that for the last 10 years.
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 ??
