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. Rio’s appeal for me was the diversity and the vibrant culture and this was something we were excited to experience. Getting from the airport to the hostel was first an experience in itself. It was late and we couldn’t …

So we made it!!

After some severe "cramming" on the flight, we managed to digest enough of the lonely planet's advice on Rio de Janeiro to feel safe enough to take the bus from the airport to Botafogo, where our hostel was located. I thought i'd made it pretty clear to the driver to let us know when we got to Botafogo so we could get off, …

We arrived in Rio de Janeiro after 30hours in flight and transit, with connections in both Sydney and Santiago, Chile. First day in Rio we went up Sugar Loaf mountain, with Condors flying above and gremlin monkeys in the trees. Incredible views of Rio - beaches, city, favelas, jungle and mountains all in one. The next two days went to Copacabana …

    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!?
