The hotel is very nice, been renovated and it shows. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is nice. The area is right in Centro so it's very busy and can get shady. it's about 5-10 minutes to the nearest metro.

Last Day in Rio
Day 3 in Rio was actually our last day after doing the entire tour. We visited the neighborhood where the artist, Selaron, made his tile steps until he was either brutally murdered or committed suicide last year. (some debate but most think it was murder.) The tiles are fascinating so I took quite a few pictures.
Last meal was the Brazilian national ...

I noticed that this hostel is pretty much 90%2525 Israeli aside from me, Pete, and Michael.

Because of this, many Israelis travel ...
