I will be going to Rio for the first time ever in November and am looking at hostels to stay at. Someone mentioned to me the Youth Hostel program and upon viewing the website and searching hostels in Rio, I came across this one which LOOKS nice from the website but you never know..you know?

LeBlon Hostel

Is it worth it to join this program?

Does anyone know anything about this hostel personally or have any advice. I need something relatively cheap as I would like to be able to stay 2 weeks.

Any other advice on how to get the cheapest plane ticket, etc would be GREATLY appreciated.

Most of the threads concerning this are several years old.

Thanks so much smile.gif

I would consider joining YHI if I was really set on using their hostels in a number of locations. Otherwise, I would look at other hostels through sites such as: hostels.com, hostelworld.com and hostelbookers.com. In particular, I would go through the reviews and see what other people have said about a particular hostel.

If you are set on going to LeBlon, I noticed it gets a pretty high rating on hostelworld.

Hope this helps!
