From the reviews I was expecting a dirty hostel but it wasn't. It felt like a proper favela experience and as it was so high up you got to see a huge amount of the favela just getting there (I'd recommend walking up at least once) the view was amazing but as I am here as low season is starting there was no other guests


Very nice place to stay for some nights. It's on the top of the Vidigal, so it's kinda hard to get there, but totally worth it. I felt pretty safe there, since there's an UPP (Police Station) very near by. It also made me dismiss a Favela Tour in Rio, because we were already deep inside favela do Vidigal. The view is just breathtaking, and it's very close to the trail to Morro Dois Irmãos, an incredible view from all Rio. The staff were very gentle people, and the rooms were clean.


Very nice hostel,with the best view to rio!
