TravelPod Member ReviewsHostel Pousada Favelinha Rio de Janeiro
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.

Corners were taken at the same speed and I thought at one stage we were going to go up on 2 wheels as the tyres squealed under the strain. With a bit of whiplash and our mouths in our throats we made it back in one piece.
The following day we jumped on ...
... Church. So the statue was built to show the power of the city. It was constructed out of concrete and covered in soap stone (indigenous to the region) to protect it from the elements. Lightening hit one of the fingers a few years ago and it's now being fixed for the olympics. You may see scaffolding in a picture or 2. The statue is locaed on Corcovado (Camel) Mountain - named because it appears to have two humps - just like a camel. ...
... efficient and probably the only cheap thing here. Brazil, like SA, has a diverse population. So, out here all 3 of us look like locals which is a good and a bad thing. Good because when travelling you don't always want to stick out like a sore thumb & attract unnecessary attention to yourself. Bad because we are expected to speak Portuguese! As soon as they realise we can't answer basic questions or converse, we get this look like "what ...
... soon turned into a disaster for the Brazil fans. There was shock and disbelief on the fans' faces, children crying, fans storming off in embarrassment at what their pride and joy were doing on the pitch. It didn’t help that it was absolutely chucking it down with rain, with the clouds threatening to open up a thunderstorm on the depressed fans below. Shortly after there was a flash robbery on the beach, where a big group of criminals look to cause panic ...
