I arrived and they were building this amazing chillout area for the hostel that was all made from recyclicaled wood. Had many a good laugh with the crew at alto vidigal. And would recommend this place highly. I've spent some time over the last 20 years travelling and as far as views of cities go it don't get better

The showers were a little bit cold but if you open just a little it will be warmer. it was an amazing experience to live in the favela!! me and my friend actually went to a party n the favela and it was very safe; we also made our shopping there anbd it as great and cheap; the fact of going by moto taxi everyday home was the best ever!!! we really loved it!
The location was fantastic and the view always impressive but the hostel itself was somewhat disappointing. We were unlucky in that we were at the hostel at a time when there was a lot of construction work going on. However, there wasn't much to compensate for it. The kitchen lacks equipment and the bathrooms are filthy. Part of the reason for this is that the owner doesn't have a clue what goes on in his hostel nor does he seem to care. Luckily Jody was great company and we got two nights free.
