Property Description

Aurora Rio is considered as one of the best-located hostels in the city, besides being a historical house adapted to your best comfort, you will hardly find another Hostel, where you can explore so many tourist attractions that easy.

In the following, we made a selection of places that you can go by WALKING from our House:

- Sugar loaf and Christ the Redeemer: We are halfway between those two points. Starting your adventure in Rio by visiting those two significant symbols of Rio de Janeiro might be a good idea. (Watch this Video and you will see what we are talking about)

- Dona Marta: One of the most famous favela in Rio de Janeiro, which is known for one of Michael Jackson’s coolest Clips in the history of Pop music: “They do not care about us”

- Parque Lage (Enrique Lage Park)

- Jardim Botânico do Rio (Botanical Garden)

- Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon)
- Various beaches like Copacabana, Leme, Botafogo, Flamengo or Praia Vermelha are available in walking distance.

And many more things to do…

We’ll give you some inspiration for more activities, when you arrive here ;)

We have discounts at the best parties in Rio, every day. The nightlife of our neighborhood is considered more diversified and alternative of the city, you are staying only some steps away from nice bars, nightclubs, cinemas, theaters, bookstores and everything that makes your day complete.

    I liked the location, the reception staff and the cleaning ladies are excellent. They do their best to keep a huge hostel clean and tidy at all time. I hope the managers appreciate and compensate them for their hard work.

    This was my second stay in his hostel. I decided to return to this hostel on my last 2 days in Rio because I really love this hostel. The lovely staff, MIck, greeted me warmly when seeing me again, as if we’re such a good old friend, really nice meeting you Mick. As my stay before, this hostel was very clean, smells nice, cozy communal room, complete kitchen tools with free coffee and tea. Very easy to check out and put your luggage while you’re out after check out, and even they welcomed you if

    Aurora hostel had a great vibe, it was exactly what we were looking for. The location was good, short walk to the metro. The staff were very friendly, especially Santiago because he made me a sandwich :) They also ran a programme to help feed the homesless, so we volunteered with that which was very rewarding. I'd highly recommend.

    It’s in a good area and the breakfast was okay, but the plastic mattress and long term ‘guests’ make it feel like a half way house. Staff were nice until they decide to party all night. Shite loud music at 8am is never fun, unless you are hammered. Creakiest beds ever, stacked 3 high in the 12 bed dorm. Not a hostel I’d recommend

    Great location, in the heart of Botafogo with great cafes and shops nearby. Roomy sleeping quarters with lockers you can store your things in (bring a padlock). No locks anywhere in the hostel so anyone could theoretically come in, so make sure to lock your stuff up. Some of the staff were helpful with great English. Some however, were quite abrupt and almost rude. Its definitely a party hostel, music til the late hours. Bathrooms could have been cleaner/ in better condition.

    I am really baffled by why this hostel has such good reason reviews - it was expensive, dirty (particularly the bathrooms), the beds were uncomfortable and rubbery, the showers were cold and the staff were actively unhelpful. I stayed during carnival and it felt like the guests were an inconvenience to the staff as they were getting in the way of the staff getting wasted. There was an electronic gate to access the hostel but it was always open. The air conditioning and breakfast were good.
