I like the fact that by the time I was staying there, the hostel made efforts to have the local TV station - Record Minas- come over for interviews relating to the FIFA World Cup.
City Lights had a commercial advertisement shot on the night we arrived. There was a party the whole night with free Skol beer for those staying there. Making Gringos feel at home. Great idea to get people interested in the place.
The best hostel on Rua Giromondo! Vila Madelena was more enjoyable because this hostel is strategically placed and also very close to most restaurants. The host was also excellent with people
