Property Information:

Just running a hostel would be a bit boring, and so our place is also a language center, offering simple Portuguese courses for travelers who want to enrich their Rio experience. We also just launched a free daily podcast, 'Rio Confidential', a 5-minute rundown of all the best options for every type of traveler, every day of the week. In other words, we're more than just a cheap bed. We're the guys who know what's good, and can help you have a most amazing time.

Things to Note

We do not offer private rooms. The bar is open until midnight, at which time quiet hours will be enforced until 8am. The door will be locked, but we have a night shift worker who can let you in after hours, no problem. The area is safe, well lit, and transportation to and from other points of interest is easy. This is an active place, a social place, a friendly place. We very much want to show you first hand the events and locales and music and traditions that make Rio unique, so we hope you walk through the front door eager for experience. We are trying to encourage better travel... we like to party, but party with locals, the way locals do. We won't hike up the prices on anything and we'll give you all the information you could possibly handle. So give us a chance, and try traveling as it is meant to be... a personal exploration as well as a global one. Cheers!
