The Meiai Hostel does everything for you to feel at home. With modern and comfortable rooms (private and shared), warm care and personalized service, very typical of the cariocas (locals).

Beyond, our common rooms are equipped with TV, DVDs, books, board games and computers. There is also a nice yard where people can hang out.

We also have Guilhermina, a delightful bar/restaurant inside the Meiai Hostel.

From the door out, Meiai doesn’t abandon you: we give you the best tips of Rio de Janeiro. Tips from who understands more of Rio: the cariocas.

With 7 shared rooms and 4 suites, the daily rates include breakfast, rooms with air conditioning, bed linens, towel, pillow, electric outlets, reading lights and drawer with key, along with access to Wi-Fi. The suites have private bathroom and HD television.

There are 7 bathrooms in the hostel area, and one of them can be used by up to 3 guests at the same time.

    Nice rooms, showers were okay. Walk to the metro station in Botafogo very close, can get to anywhere in Rio from there. Hostel staff were helpful, receptionist was great she gave us loads of info on arrival. Mariano the barman was great, but the hostel lacked the hostel atmosphere we were looking for. Food wasn't the best either.
