This is a little hostel in the middle of one of the most easy going favelas. We took the double room after a long flight and it was more then worth it. A master bed, including a private bathroom and toillet, a prime view over Rio itself and by night you get to see a jungle of lights! Every morning you get a breakfast (included) excisting out of coffee, cheese and ham, butter, jam, dulce de leche and fresh fruit every day. It's so close to the center that everything you wanna do is easy by foot.
The only downpart is finding this little paradise in the first place.

The views from the lookout points ...

... just flop it out and **** on the street. Hey, when you gotta go you gotta go, I get that. We took the typical photo in front of the Lapa sign and went to the bar which was famous for its Caiprinhas (the national drink of Brazil) and this other spicy ginger drink. We got there and boy oh boy it was interesting. It was a small dingy place with hundreds and hundreds of people standing in front of it, We made our way to the bar and had a first go at the ginger drink ...
... before the beginning so they are obviously struggling to get things built before the Cup.
All that said Rio was awesome! And there is a lot of World Cup Fever.
As soon as we got off the plane we walked onto a mat that looked like a football (soccer) pitch. The bag carousel was football themed and so ...
... with the Pheonix Girls I understood how to throw it a bit better!! But I was still terrible compared to the yanks. I then saw two locals juggling by the water and so joined in there for a bit too. Making more friends really. Finally we started to walk back from Ipanema. On the way we saw a commercial being shot, and a couple demonstrating the expression of "get a room." Jess made an amazing discovery with a local burger place that did... Wait for it... BACON!!!! Oh bacon, how ...
