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.
Our stay at Safari Hostel during the World Cup was great! Paulo is very helpful, friendly, and helped us get to all of the places we wanted to be. He showed us around the rainforest area and gave us good tips for the best hiking spots. This is a great place to stay if you want to see some nature, be comfortable with lots of space and clean amenities, and feel at home. The breakfast was the best we had during our trip spanning 10 days! There's also a bar and gas station located across the street.
