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.

Thursday 24 July: I woke up to a beautiful farewell sunrise; it brightened up what was a sad-tinged morning as I packed up all my camping gear and dropped my tent for the last time of this trip in South America.

I went to bed about 1 as I couldn't sleep for some reason so I spoke to Nat and Funke on skype. Then the next morning my two lovely friends Zoe and Jake who I had met in Ihka Grande got chatting to me on Facebook and they saved me.

The street party wasn't much more than a small group playing music and tons of ...
... views from the top were phenomenal, and watching the sun set behind Christ the Redeemer is something we will never forget.
On the way back to Copacabana we ditched the minibus, deciding it would be faster to walk than queue in traffic, walked about a mile in the opposite direction of the hostel before doubling back and stopping for a delicious steak en route! Never had food tasted so good, and it isn't often you get to eat overlooking Copacabana beach!
Yesterday I woke up, got ready, and packed my bags. I had had enough of waiting around for my phone, which has been stuck at customs (and continues to be as I write this) since the 3rd day of my trip, despite paying $160 dollars to have it mailed first class with insurance. I am hoping the hostel owners are honest if they get to it before I do. After adjusting my pack and taking some time to figure out how it ...
