Tupiniquim matches any other hostel’s price !! 😂👊🏽

What does that mean ??

It means that in similar conditions, all things equal, we will always match any online offer of any other hostel, as long as the room has identical specifications and the neighborhood is close enough, ok ??

It pretty much has to:

  • Be for the same number of people
  • Be ensuite (private bathroom)
  • Have air conditioning in the room and be included in the price.
  • Have at least a basic breakfast included in the price.

So for example: if you tell us that you’ve got yourself a private room with fan, shared bathroom, in Rio’s downtown 😔 … that doesn’t count for all of our rooms have air conditioning, ensuite bathroom and we are in the heart of the South Area (the most touristic area) 🙃

It’s also not fair to compare a 16-people dorm (because ours is 10-people at most) or tell us that you found an amazing deal at Favela da Rocinha.
I mean, with all due respect to the favelas but … seriously ?? do I really need to explain ?? 😟

The prices for each room change based on many factors:

  • If you’re affiliated to Hostelling International
  • If it’s high or low season
  • If it’s a weekday or weekend
  • If it’s an extended holiday
  • If there is a special event in town such as Carnaval, New Year’s Eve, Olympic Games …

What does it mean to be affiliated to Hostelling International ??


Because we are part of the Hostelling International (HI) network, we offer its member a 10 % discount on all our rooms: shared dorms and privates alike. If you’re not yet a HI member, you can get this discount by acquiring a HI Hostel Membership Card with us !! 🖖

The HI Pass offers several benefits:

part-chostelling-international

  • It’s international, which means you can get a discount in more than 4000 hostels all over the world, 100 of them just in Brazil.
  • It includes an accidental death & disability insurance policy.
  • Hostelling International is like a quality control company: all HI affiliated hostels go through evaluations and training procedures regularly.
  • It is valid for 1 year.
  • HI has many partners in the tourism business so they can offer you a discount on their services as well.
  • Discounts on the shared dorms are R$ 3 – R$ 25 per day, or R$ 14 to R$ 84 if we are talking about private rooms. It all depends on the season or special event.

The HI Pass costs R$ 40. But if you reserve directly with us, come outside special events dates (like Carnival) and stay at least 10 nights, we’ll give it to you for free !!

Think about it: even if you stay only 3 nights in a private room the HI Pass is totally worth it … 😅
