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.
Lovely breakfast with homemade juice and a lot chooses for the bread. Friendly staff. Patrick (the owner) high/drunk, we don't know, but he was a nice guy. Impossible to find on your own, ask someone, they are helpful. Located in a safe favela. Good busconnections to the town, take bus 006 or 007 just outside the favela. Hot water. Clean, but could be better. If you want the best view of Rio, stay here! Highly recommended.
