          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!?

          ... we to know. The doors were locked so we couldn't do a runner. We paid the c*nt and left.

          As we bought our tickets the previous day, we had priority tickets which meant we could queue jump so we pretty much went straight into a minibus to the statue.

          The statue was huge; an amazing feat of engineering. The views were spectacular, you could see all around Rio and the surrounding area. It was immensely busy so we were moving around at a snails pace, but soon enough ...
