    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 …

    ... mid-training, Roy and the boys shouting his name. The next day - it was time, so off we went to the Urca military training base where the boys camp was. Collected our passes and in we went, just as the team bus entered too. Had a quick tour of the media centre and then headed out onto the pitch - what a spectacular setting. With palm trees around the pitch and a view of the ocean, this was pretty special. We watched the boys train for about half an hour, Ali was a bit ...

    ... I notice ants. Lots of ants. Let's just say the slight meltdown as I'm shaking ants out of my underwear was something to behold - along with my screaming, "he has to come do something about this TODAY!"

    I haven't even began to cover the strange decor of this place, yŠll. For instance, there were four hooks hanging from the ceiling in the master bedroom - at each corner of the bed. My wicked husband remarks, "he left ...
