    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.

    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 …

    On Friday we travelled for 6 hours in 30 degree weather so we were pretty hot and bothered when we arrived! We spent the afternoon relaxing and visited the Oscar Niemeyer Contemporary Art Museum in Niteroi which was ...

    ... few drinks, we had a go at salsa - the single girls were already looking like pros being led around by Brazilian men. However we weren't such naturals haha after crashing into a few couples, bruising each other's feet and a few ill times twirls we gave up. The next morning we had our favela tour which was an experience. We walked 2km from the too to the bottom of Rosenia, the biggest favela in South America. There were strict ...

    ... the photos tell it better), then down to a local market and then along Ipanema beach to meet others from our hostel for a tour of a nearby favela. In the media, favelas are generally portrayed as crime-ridden, deadly slums. Well, Vidigao favela is the complete opposite of that. It gradually and illegally appeared during the 1930s but is now government sanctioned and every now and then, after local pressure, the authorities improve parts of it. It's one of ...

    ... however when we got inside it was stunning. A 70's looking building the was conical in shape, a cross between space mountain and a Mayan temple with huge stain glass windows from floor to ceiling. It was a quick stop of 10 mins to take some pictures then back in the minivan for the next stop. Traffic was bad and we headed not too far to Lapa.
