    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 …

    ... t be in a dorm to meet people as no one here was really going to carnival. It was more of a hostel were students stay long term when they are studying. There was one Dutch guy who was there for carnival. The first job I needed to do was get a bus ticket to leave on 17th, I didn't want to get stuck here. So the owner very kindly got two students from Brazil to take me down the road to a bus ticket office and they bought my ticket for me, the man didn't speak English in the bus shop ...

    We had booked a guide to show us around the next day and sight numero uno was Christ the Redeemer. It’s one of the most iconic monuments in the world and it sit on a hill around 700m above sea-level with unbelievable views over Rio. You can see the monument from most of Rio and it’s one of the symbolic images of Rio. The weather was overcast but the view was still amazing, you can see the beaches of Copacabana ...

    ... the German team bus parked up; glancing around, we noticed the place was full of media and cameramen waiting to do their reports and catch a glimpse of the Germans.

    There was no immediate sign of our tour guide amongst the reporters so we waited just outside the hotel in hope that he would spot us, and in hope we would see Thomas Muller staggering back to his room after a heavy night. As it was we had to make do with a brief chat with Sky Sports' reporter Gary Cotterill. He ...

    Rio de Janeiro… Day One…

    ... headed out onto the streets of Ipanema and made our way to the beach. As Brazil had one, the place was going off. It was an exciting place to be and I'm glad they won, as I envisioned riots if they'd lost. After a good walk along the beach heading toward the point between Ipanema and Copacabana, we found a little food place and got a small bite to eat and some Churro's. Couldn't eat too much as we're heading out to the all you can eat BBQ meat place for ...
