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.

I went to see a samba party in the middle of a plaza/park but it was over by the time I got there so I instead went with the group to Camila´s friend, Claudia´s, apartment. She is an architect with a pretty awesome apartment. We just hung out and drank and listened to music until early in the morning and then I took a cab home and ...
... told us 'too dangerous' before driving away. By this point I could't get in contact with Ben so we decided to go to the nearest bar which was a Champagne bar. Favela Party, Champagne Bar...same thing I guess.
