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.

The next morning we arrived in Salvador, bought bus tickets to Rio and then had a few hours to prepare before leaving again.

We also took the cable car up sugar loaf mountain. Worth the visit for great views to fully appreciate the scale of the city. It was 38 degrees that day and with not much shade up there we decided to head back down and resume the position of beach bum on Copacabana beach. Beach chairs tick, beers tick, beautiful ...
... wet. Given the rain, we convinced ourselves that the banana's and ice cream was a good option to wait out the rain. Yet another good choice.
Our hotel is ok, it's new and everything's ok but it does remind me just a little bit (based on size) of some of the hotels (bizaness hotels) that Tom and I had while we were in Japan. It's very small but efficient. We're only here for three days so we'll be good I'm sure. The weather ...
... of him, the amount of tattoos he sported and also the two great big scars on either side of his mouth (aka Chelsea Smile). We also soon decided that he was probably part of a violent street gang that preyed on the vulnerabilities of british tourists who would likely be carrying backpacks containing a fair amount of cash, electronic equipment, passports and credit cards etc. This, plus the fact that despite the bus being pretty much empty he decided to sit in the seat directly ...
