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.

There were several street cleaners sweeping and collecting rubbish bags off the street. In contrast though, there were also several people on bikes, rummaging through bins ...
... My bum was numb, I was hungry and all I wanted to do was get the **** of the bus. Finally after about 3 hours I saw the silky sand of Leblon beach and this time it was my turn to pee a little this time out of excitement. We got to the room, poured ourselves a strong drink, went straight to the roof and lit a cigarette. There were no words left to say about the day. What a day it was. We just turned to each other, faces exhausted and with just one look we laughed. It was a great day. Thanks ...
... completely ugly and weird. But it is meant to be architecturally environmentally friendly due to the light it lets in and the air flow it allows.
On the inside it is absolutely beautiful. Huge stain glass windows from floor to ceiling. The cathedral is so big it can hold 15 to 20 THOUSAND people. It filled ...
