    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 …

    ... or Ferdinand, who spent the day in his speedo, no eye brows were raised in the least. It was a very hot day. Amazing food, salads and risotto, and copious cups of beer and everyone squeezed into the lounge, jabbering away in Portuguese, and us, sleepy yet wide-eyed and happy. Their amazing communal attitude towards everything is really great, I would love it if our culture was more that way inclined.. Everything is shared, no question. And they really do seem just ...

    It was the first day waking up in the new hostel. Unfortunately here breakfast finishes early so I had to drag myself out of bed for that. By the time I had finished the weather was still horrible and I was tired. Back to bed for me then. The room was empty and I built myself a den around my bottom bunk giving me complete privacy. I dozed off until midday at which time the sun had actually come out for the first time in a week. We couldn't miss any of this rarity ...
