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!?

... probably have never been to Rio before, let alone Ilha Grande! First stop was this little island in the middle of the water, lovely white beaches, warm water & just a few fish swimming round some of the rock out croppings. Getting off the boat was a matter of climbing half way down the ladder & jumping in the water, there was no wharf to offload onto! Needless to say getting back up was the hard part lol We stayed for about 45 mins, most of that time in ...
