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.

We got the first train there and literally ran the last steps to be the first one up there and get a photo with the big ...
... but most slums are on the outskirts of the city hidden away from the centre. What makes Rio's favelas so interesting is that they are pretty much in the city itself intertwined with the other affluent hillside neighbourhoods.
Favelas in Rio were originally settlements for soldiers returning from various campaigns and they later became the 'go to' area for all the poor and homeless. Over time, many communities were established and the favelas were born. There are ...
... start the trip. Saw the big Jesus (really need to find out what that's actually called) on the hill and I think you can see it from the end of my street, gonna go out for a little explore in a minute and see what's around. So yeah not much to tell really mainly to let the family know I'm still alive, I'll update in a few days once I've actually seen and done some stuff! ...
... coaches visiting Neymar in the hospital or paying tribute to him in some other way. It should have been clear to all of us that with this Neymar obsession, the team would either come out possessed or would crash at the hands of their own obsessive compulsive dependence of their star player. And it very may well be that the loss of their captain Thiago Silva to accumulation of yellow cards was even more critical than the loss of Neymar as their entire ...
