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!?

So as three Brits arriving, factor 50 in hand and luminously white, we did our best to fit in but inevitably ended the day with a gleaming tint of red the lacked by the locals. As the day cools footballers take to the beach, gathering for their version of keepy up, samba music starts to get louder and postcard Rio comes to life. Luckily a friend who used to ...

... of great people at the hostel which made enjoying Rio and Carnival all the easier - Davina, Sharon, Paul, Kevin, Lara, Anouk, Roshni, Lee, Leanne, Brian, Adam, Maeve, and Zoe; in addition we met up with Catherine and her friends Rachel and Sam from back home. A number of these people we will meet on the journey around the continent.

Sorry for the massive post! Rio was our first two weeks so we saw and did a lot in that time, the next one will be smaller, I swear!
