    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. 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 …

    ... BO coming off my shirt. I stopped to do my usual burpees etc and decided you know what? I cant wear this anymore, so shirt came off and I ran all the way back to the apartment pecs out.

When I got back to the room Renato came down and we decided we would head out at 10pm to Lapa, he also told us that the official Brazil jerseys could be bought from the Nike shop just a few stores down. We were dressed and walking out the door 15 ...

    ... senile dementia sufferers? I decided to take a walk in the direction the buses were headed and eventually found them parked up.

    Missed my stop accidentally on purpose and found myself in the city centro, reckoning there was plenty of time to explore. To be honest it wasn't very endearing and didn't feel entirely safe so I walked ten minutes to the nearest Metro back to Gloria.

    After some more hand waving I eventually got ...
