Decent, clean hotel with tasty breakfast and friendly staff. Nothing fancy but reasonable value for Rio, and on a busy road so felt safe. It's in Catete which is a good midpoint between the main areas in Rio also, so pretty easy to get most places, and a pleasant walk to sugar loaf.

Checked out of the hostel at 10am. We were genuinely sad to leave as it's the longest we've stopped anywhere so far so it was starting to feel like a home away from home.

The variety of smells was unusual- anything from baked goods to huge wafts of sewage smells... when you see how close together these people live it is no wonder!
Our tour guide told us that some of the local hotels allow the children ...
... been mugged so we were sketchy about Jewdini. It was also his first night here and we doubted he remembered our new Copacabana address which was a 20 minute drive away. We looked for him up and down the streets of Lapa for a good 2 hours.. No sign so we returned to our apartment to call it a night. Ofcourse he was there on the couch drunk as, some how managed to find his way back. We were happy he was safe but gutted we wasted the night, oh ...
... come to party and us in our beach dresses, bikinis and havianas did stand out a little.) Great celeb spotting though - itv lot partying with Vernon Kay, mark wright and flack and Ali's highlights Fabio Cannavaro and Patrick Veira who we went and spoke to. Met some nice Americans who said they lived next to the Kardashians and insisted on buying all of our drinks - probably the most untraveller place we have been on our trip and was a very surreal experience, but ...
