we came back to this hostel twice mostly because of the super lovely guys on reception. the guy from london was immense very friendly and helpful. ask him about the local steak restaurant. he was a real joy to chat to, very good at his job. there was also a really helpful chatty guy from brazil who was ace.
when we were there the second time there was also the most life changing banana cake that the cleaners had cooked. delicious! the free breakfasts were really good too.
rooms were ok, quite expensive for what they were though.

Which we had tried to find yesterday, Nat had thought it was the horrible place across the road and couldn't understand why they weren't making a big deal out of it... Turns out they were across the ...
... were too hungry by this point to walk anywhere else. The portion was tasty but tiny and stupidly expensive (as is everything in rio). We ended up walking back to copacabana and having pizza! We won't be making that mistake again. Day 4 (sun 7th sep) Just had our last hotel breakfast and are about to pack to go to our hostel in ipanema. I'm just getting to grips with this blog malark so will out photos on when I've worked out how. Rebecca ...
... the cheers of the crowd already inside which made my heart skip a beat. Wow this was it, I was about to be a spectator for a World Cup game (deep breathe). We went through security again, scanned our tickets and made our way up the ramp to gate 130 which is first elevation, We were close. Danielle had pee. We checked out a few more of the official fifa stores to see if they had the jerseys, they didnt. So we got another round of beers which meant more cups for me to bring home ...
