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!

Great place. Loved the people of the hostel but also in the Favelinha itself. Definitely recommend everybody to stay. Facilities are value for money.
