    It's a hostel out of the way. Our first hostel, so we didn't have anything to compare it to. Looking back, it has a cosy and hippy vibe. Great breakfast and it's cheap!

    Couldn't be happier with this hostel! It's immaculate, in an excellent location (botofogo metro is just 3 minutes walk away) and the staff are very helpful, speaking excellent English. The shared spaces and rooms are rustically decorated and full of character. We stayed in a private room which we booked in advance and also ended up staying in a 15 bed dorm as we wanted to extend our stay, both were excellent. Lots if showers, great breakfast, good WiFi connection... what more could you want!?

    Rio De Janeiro is a city I have long dreamt of visiting and was so excited arriving here on the first stop of our trip.

It was late and we couldn’t …

    ... that big of a deal, but it definitely made you think as you were climbing. We come across others who are coming back down and they say it gets easier after this portion, though it just appears to get steeper and steeper. We pass a couple of groups of people as well who appear to really be struggling. Then we come across a couple who are stopped with their cameras out. We look around and see that there are some monkeys on the trail. We stop and ...
