Amazing views of the city! Great experience to stay in a favelinha. Felt like a home stay staff are superb. Super friendly and keen to help out. Only downside is the long hilly walk in and out otherwise location is good as a base to explore from. Felt safe inside the favelinha

Great stay at Pousada Favelinha! The staff bent over backward to make my stay enjoyable. If you're looking for a fancy hostel in a chic part of Rio this likely isn't your spot; however, if you're looking for something unique in an interesting part of town with an unbeatable view then you've found your spot! Matt, the manager, will take you anywhere you want to go or arrange for someone to pick you up (he's also great to share a beer with). I'd come back to Fevelinha in a heart beat.

1 word for the Pousada: Home. The hostel is very clean and comfortable, the host is very helpful and the food is amazing, Santa Teresa and the surrounding favela is very safe and also a very real side of rio. Go to Casa de Musica on monday or tuesday, that you grab the x-tudo burger from Xavier burger, and that you go tour the favela and see the art exhibit there. The best part of my stay here was meeting the people in the favela itself. Come here and you will fall madly in love, truth Valeu :)

The view is incredible, it's pretty much like waking up on top of sugarloaf every morning to the most amazing hostel breakfast I've ever had! The staff are incredible with a family feel and Matt is the most helpful and friendly person and a great teacher of the art of making a caperinha. The favela neighborhood is super friendly and I felt safer there than in other areas of rio like botafogo and lapa. Note: it is a little walk from the main road, but you'd never get a view like it otherwise.
