The amazing view on the sugarloaf, the kindness of Gabriel and his mother!
Difficult to find, maybe could be useful to put bigger sings since the entrance in the neighbourhood. The hostel is located in a very beautiful hill, recommended to have a different experience in Rio.
The view from the balcony and the roof terrace of the hostel! Friendly staff.
It was the best place that myself and my partner have stayed in our past 15 months of travelling the world. The facilities are just what you need and the first hot shower we'd had in a couple of weeks. Sol is an amazing host and so friendly along with the other staff (unfortunately I don't know their names). We booked for a week and were a bit concerned about it being in the favelas and a week would be a long time if we didn't like it. We loved it! Everyone in the community was welcoming to us and gave us directions around the favelas. There was a little cafe, reataurant, bar and lots more within the favelas itself. If we are lucky enough to go back to Rio we would definitely stay here again!
Honestly, I have nothing bad to write about this place.
The views, friendly staff, experience of living in a favela
The walk to the hostel although full of nice people that greet you and are polite has some animal excrement along it
