This hostel is in a favela, deep in a favela. It is at the top of Vidigal up a very windy road that is hardly big enough for a small car. Once you get to the hostel, you better not want to leave, because it's almost impossible to get off the mountain. Scary place, not something I would recommend

Wonderful hostel. Clean and the views from every room are mind blowing. Vidigal is an exciting, welcoming community worth a visit. Staff were friendly and very helpful, but unfortunately quite difficult to get hold of at times, they never seemed to answer the phone and on one return from a night out in the early hours of the morning the doorman was asleep and didn't wake up to let us in!
