Staying at Vidigal is such a nice experienc! The atmosphere in the hostel and the favela is awesome. Everybody knows each other and is a huge family. You can find everything you need in the there. And not only that it's safe to walk down and up the hill, but it's also a wonderful workout. But you can also take the mototaxi :) The hostel itself is new and clean. One of the nicest I stayed in Rio. The stuff is very welcoming and fun! And you have maybe the best view over the beaches of Rio.

It's a pitty I only stayed for two days! The view is spectacular and the structure of the hostel could not be better! Everything is new, clean and well maintained, and such a helpful and friendly staff. Feeling of total security in a pacified community, and many establishments nearby. I wouldn't recommend going walking to the beach, but instead taking a mototaxi to the foot of the hill, it is cheap and much faster. Great for those who like to party and for those who don't, since rooms are quiet.

Nice place to have a real but proper favela experience. The place is super cool, with a nice view to the best beaches in Rio. The staff is great and everything is pretty clean! I would definitely recommend this place for my friends!

Definitely the best hostel I've ever been to. Amazing view and a true favela experience. Close to the best beach and nightlife in Rio (Leblon), this is the place to stay. I am surely staying there again in my next trip to this unique city.
