I loved staying at the Green Culture Eco Hostel, located high up in a beautiful pacified favela it offers a great view. It's a short walk to the beach but not an easy one. Thanks to all the staff there for making me feel welcome. Would happily recommend.

Ace hostel. Great location, right by the beach and in a super safe and friendly favela. All the staff are cool and will always help your time in Rio be as good and fun as it can be. I can't recommend this hostel more!

This hostel offeres a view of Rio not often experienced. Those willing or wanting to put aside the the wonderful but crazy and fast paced parts of the city can end up enjoying what I found to be a very heartfelt And relaxing paradise. The location alone proves an experience worth any efforts, but the staff and atmosphere are the true gems of this hostel. I recommend highly a stay, possible after you've gotten you're partying done with. Thanks Pablo and family/staff! I will be back!!

This is easily, one of my favourite hostel experiences in my years of travelling! An excellent hostel with wonderful people, in a superbly friendly and cool favela. And the beach was just a walk down the hill! Pablo was superb, he was friendly, helpful a great host, and ensured all our needs were met. I had an issue of an overcharge in my credit card and Pablo had it resolved in lightning speed - thank you! And thank you everyone at Green Culture Eco Hostel - you left great memories for me!

It was my first time to stay in a hostel and Green Culture exceeded my expectations not just because of its good location but also because of the people I get to interact with. People had a lot of stories to share and you'd just be amazed hearing them all. And also, this hostel has a very cozy ambiance and a relaxing vibe with all its hammocks. I had a really great time and I'll be coming back without a doubt. Thank you!

Best Thing: Location!!! Going to Rio means you'll talk and hear about favelas. So why not staying in a Hostel, owner-operated, self-constructed with recycled materials, fantastic ocean-view and friendly well-travelled hosts Pablo and Wilma in Chapeau-Mangueira (a Favela). Must do in Rio! Only one tiny little downside: a bit to much staff... Cheers guys

This is great little hostel. The location lets you experience rio for real. The staff is really nice and everyone is social. A bit of a boys club at times though...

Absolutely loved this hostel for so many reasons- its up there with one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. For people who want a great experience of Rio, the area is vibrant, friendly and considerably cheaper than its neighbors. Very centrally located and a few minutes walk from the beach! Pablo and Wilma are wonderful and truly ready to help with anything, you will feel so much more at home than in any standard hostel. Hostel itself is always spotless with the most incredible view!

The location is good as if's in a great favela, 15min walk to the beach down a steep hill. The owner is very nice and the wifi works great. This is however a basic hostel in size an amenities. It could benefit from better cleaning. Overall a good experience
