Property Information:

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 project of its kind and as far as we know the only possibility in all of Brazil 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 four double rooms and two dorm rooms. 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 m²) 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 artist´s 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 10 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-Brazilian owners Holger and Andreia together with the cityguide Patrick and the friendly Brazilian staff heartily welcome you to the place where dreams come true!

New: Internet for guests in the lobby and free wireless access in all rooms!

    The view is amazing - at sunrise and sunset. Basic facilities, basic breakfast and basic security (i.e. lockers and the front door is locked - although the lock is quite flimsy). The rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Although this place is situated in the favela, there were never any issues whatsoever. People in the surrounding area were always very helpful when asking for diretions etc. and very polite. Would stay here again.
