Hideously overpriced for a very dirty place, ZERO maintenance ever done. Clean your bathrooms at least once a year!!!

We had a fantastic time staying at this hostel simply due to its location at the top of the Favela overlooking Rio. The view was awesome and local restaurants very good. Staying here was the highlight of our Rio experience! The hostel itself was dirty and so was the small kitchen; so we chose to eat out! the manager Jody was extremely helpful and we couldnt speak highly enough of him. He also took us on a Favel tour of Rocinha which was very good value for money. We would stay here again.

Hostel with the most fantastic view over the city! It is in a favela but very safe, you can walk around at night without any problems and everyone makes you feel very welcome. You can walk down to Leblon beach in - 40 minutes (nice walk) or take a bus/motortaxi. There is a very nice hike to the Dois Irmaos starting from Vidigal. Don't forget that the breakfast is not included.

On the top of a safe favela, the hostel has a best view! Vidigal is a safe favela but the combi and motortaxi are always trying to overcharge a new comer or a tourist-like. Jody is a great host. Nothing can beat the BBQ and cold beers with the moonlight on the ocean view here! Everyone who wants to have a taste of favela could definitely come stay here. Though it's a bit far away from all the attractions, need some patience of trafficking.

The view at the hostel was amazing. Very friendly staff. It is in a favela, but it is one of the most privileged favelas and I did not feel unsafe even once on my stay, even roaming the streets alone. Overall, great place to stay!
