    Rooms are clean and mine had a balcony with a hammock which was great. The bathroom is basic but had all I needed. Nice hot showers. Free caipirinha on arrival. My first night a group of residents had lots of drinks in the hostel bar then "G" who works there took us to a samba club in Leblon. Looking forward to more fun nights during my stay here.

    From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

    A travel blog entry by tholdsworth89 on Jul 15, 2014

    For our final full day in Rio we had arranged to take advantage of the glorious weather by going on a favela tour that promised the best view of the city. This meant an early start, with an 8 o'clock meeting at a hotel on the other side of town. The Botafogo trio arrived first to find that the Sheraton Hotel is as upmarket as it gets and were even …

    ... a big coffee drinker, but the coffee I had was the best! I walked the streets for hours and it’s time for the beach. You can get a chair and umbrella for between 2 and 5 dollars depending upon who is willing to give you the best deal. For an urban beach the sand is plentiful and CLEAN. People don't use towels. They use a pareo on the sand or a chair and most of the men just lie in the sand. The weather has been beautiful, in the 70’s no humidity and ...

    ... Storm' flags. In the last three years (and especially 2014), Brazilian surfing has battered its way onto the world stage in a phenomenon referred to as the 'Brazilian Storm'. Next up was the women's final, which was relatively calm. The men's final, on the other hand, was an extravaganza. The home favourite, Felipe Toledo, who learnt to surf on one of Rio's beaches, came out to rapturous applause on the back of a jet ski. The Australian was not ...

    We disembarked from the ship for the last time. There was a bus to take us to the Sheraton
    Hotel. It’s the only hotel right on a beach. The others are across street. It is beautiful and everything around it is beautiful. Our room is on the 20th floor so we have a great view of the ocean, the beach and the surrounding area. I’m sure you’ll love
    the pictures. We had lunch out ...

    The beach

    ... bite to eat with Jo, a Welsh guy from Cardiff. Went to a place on a corner in Leblon up from the hostel and had a burger and fritas a few more beers at the hostel with some Argentinians who had recently arrived (names forgotten). In my dorm room now and four Brazilian girls have just checked into my dorm and are loud! Nice day at the beach. Waves are pretty tough - lots of ...
