You have to stay here for the views alone! Absolutely stunning and the whole place is so nicely done. We arrived in time for the Brazil World Cup game and were even invited to the neighbours for a free bbq! Would 100% stay here again 😁

Excellent. Axel took us for lunch, and took time to explain everything to us. He was also very accommodating of the sizes of rooms we wanted. The hostel is amazing with incredible views. Yes, you are in the favela...but you get a real Rio feel and we had no trouble.
