Property Information:

Only 20 minutes away from Maracanã stadium, Safari Hostel is perfectly centered in town, offering access to every quarter of Rio de Janeiro. Right at the access of Christ Redeemer Road which is mid way between Alto and Santa Teresa, we are within a mere 15 minutes of downtown and it subway stations, whether its Santa Teresas Restaurants, Barra da Tijucas beaches or shopping malls, Copacabanas boardwalk, the beach and bars of Ipanema, or the nightlife of Lapa, Leblon and Tijuca; its all quickly accessible from our doorstep. Many magical waterfalls, fauna and flora that cover 3.5 million hectares of rich Atlantic forest surround our unique location right in town.

Home of the hang gliders launch point The National Park of Tijuca is a haven for all adventure-seeking people, and their diverse sports. Some of the activities that can be done within The Park or just near by include hang gliding, skating, hiking, rappelling, trekking, climbing, mountain biking, surfing, kite surfing, body boarding, diving etc. Just inside the town.

Founded in an 1850′s coffee depot and lodge, the building remains intact and preserved from the days when the Viscount of Mau had its steel beams ordered from London and assembled in Praa Afonso Viseu, where, still surrounded by the great mansions of the age, the house served as a meeting ground for coffee farmers and traders. Adorned by the natural beauty of Tijuca Forest, the point rapidly grew in popularity. Today, at the entrance of Tijuca Forests National Park, the house has been refurbished to the most modern of standards. With its comfortable and acclimatized rooms the house once again comes alive to host your every desire.

    I've been to hostels all over the world and this is the most calm and home-like hostel I have stayed in. Pablo does a great job making his guests comfortable and helping them with anything they need. Located in the middle of Tijuca Forest, it's a great getaway from the craziness of Copacabana, Lapa, etc.
