Property Information:

Explore Rio de Janeiro beyond the obvious and feel like a real 'carioca'.

* About: Lawyers, he tour guide, love art, culture, sport, tourism and adventure. We are pleased to welcome friends and people all over the world in our home, thus establishing a multicultural exchange.

* Our Hostel: We live in a charming house built in 1938, with 750 square meters, just below the famous Cristo Redentor statue. Located in the foothills of the Tijuca Forest, yet only 2 blocks from the main street - where you can find plenty of public transportation options to everywhere in the city, our guest house, called Corcovado Hostel, has no direct entrance from the road. To walk up to the house, it's necessary to climb an ancient staircase, as shown in the pictures! Besides the bedrooms, Corcovado Hostel has a large open veranda overlooking the mountains with a dining table, washing area, sun-loungers and a shower, perfect for relaxing, sun bathing and to soak up the atmosphere of Rio. And with some luck, little monkeys and toucans will show up to say hello!

* Rooms: We have 5 different types of rooms, all clean and airy. Each room is independent from each other opening out onto the terrace.

* The neighborhood: Just between old center and the beaches, Cosme Velho is a traditional neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, a high-class residential area, very charming and safe, with historical monuments and the memory of illustrious residents, great artists, writers and poets. During the night, Cosme Velho is quiet and peaceful, a place where you can feel like a real 'carioca'. And in case you want to hang out into Rio's nightlife, in 15 minutes, you are in Lapa, Copacabana or Ipanema, knowing that you'll come back to sleep in a little paradise!

    The place is highly recommended, even for people traveling to Rio for work. Hostel style is quite unusual and the location is perfect, in a very nice area tanquila and with panoramic views, yet easily accessible.
