Property Description

The greatest view and the quietest environment you can imagine! The Hostel 'Pousada Favelinha' is located on a small mountain in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, between the district of Laranjeiras and the hip Santa Teresa. It is situated inside a small 'Favela', one of the many 'poor' districts that Rio has got. However, it is not 'poor' in cultural terms, and it is absolutely secure! This is the first and original Favela Hostel in all of Brazil! Since 2004!

This is the first project of its kind and one of the best opportunities to experience the tranquil life in a favela. All of the approximately 3000 inhabitants of the favela will great you in a very friendly way, and you will find lots of friends among other backpackers as well as among the people who live near our hostel.

We have fivedouble rooms and one dorm room. All rooms have a balcony with beautiful views, with a hammock on each balcony. They also all have private baths, and a big tropical breakfast is included in the price. A large living room and a huge (120 m) rooftop terrace is part of the hostel. Bananas, jack fruit, passion fruit etc. grow in the garden. As there is no car traffic anywhere nearby, about the only sounds you will hear is from the humming birds or the occasional rooster in the morning ;)

Still, you are only a five minute walk from either the metro station at 'Largo do Machado' which will take you to the Copacabana beach in only another 7 minutes, or from the 'bondinho', the old little cable car which runs through the beautiful artists district in Santa Teresa and right down to the center of Rio and the nightlife district 'Lapa'.

Check out our video on the hostelworld site, and related videos on youtube to see the environment!

Since there are no roads in front of our hostel, the only thing you will have to put up with is walking a small hill up (or down, wherever you come from) to reach home. This paths leads you through so many beautiful houses and trees, playing children, and old women chatting, that you would wish your stay was longer...

The favela is secured by police and by the proper inhabitants. It has been absolutely quiet for the past 15 years, and many special programs guarantee it to stay this way.

If you are looking for something very special during your stay in Rio, come to the Hostel Favelinha and experience Rio de Janeiro the way only very few foreigners ever see it! The German owner Holger together with the cityguide Patrick and the friendly Brazilian staff heartily welcome you to the place where dreams come true!

Latest Review

" A very special and unique hostel! Surely nowhere else to be found, but in this Favela in Rio de Janeiro. The view from the balconies and from the public roof terrace is excellent! (Perfect for sunrise watching.) The stuff (Portugese, English and German speaking) was extraordinarily friendly and helpful during our stay in January 2016. The atmosphere is really cozy and the rooms are simple but lovely. Definitely recommend to go there! Whenever I will come back to Rio, this is the place to go! "
