Property Description

The perfect place for travellers who wants to experience authentic brazilian culture, nature, wildlife and beaches.

All this just 10 minutes from copacabana beach!
The Property is located in Favela Chapéu Mangueira and Babilonia one of the first pacified favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Back in the days Favela Chapeu mangueira and Babilonia was controlled by street gangs, until it was taken over by the police pacification unit project called 'UPP' in 2009 which has restored peace to the community and enhanced tourism.

Chapeu mangueira and Babilonia are now used as an example for other similar projects around the world as a success story.

Nowadays there is no safer place in Rio de janeiro than this small community called Chapeu mangueira, its like living in a small village where children play in the street and where everyone knows each other.

    Uno de los mejores hostales en los que he estado. Desde que llegué me sentí como en mi casa! El ambiente del hostal es excelente, Pablo y los demás muchachos son muy amables. El hostal es limpio, comodo y tiene una vista impresionante hacia el mar. Al quedar en la favela, es posible salir del plan turístico de la ciudad y conocer la cultura no comercial, adicionalmente los precios del licor y la comida en el barrio son muy comodos. Completamente seguro a cualquier hora del día. Para volver!!!

    The perfect place to experience life in a very safe Favela - I actually felt safer living here than I did in any other part of Rio. Pablo and his staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating to give you the best time here - also the BBQ night is one not to miss! 100% would recommend for anyone wanting to have a safe, enjoyable stay in a Favela.

    Pablo and staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating! This was the first place we stayed when we arrived to South America from Ireland so it was a great place to see a bit of local life with an incredible view so close to the beaches. Really enjoyed our stay at GreenCultureEco! Thanks guys!

    Pablo and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Location is close to copacabana beach, but it's a bit of a walk up to the hostel. Facilities are basic but working. Located in a favela, so you can get an insight to this nice community. The area felt perfectly safe and comfortable all the time even though you might see some shady things going on. But even the shady people are friendly and have no intention to rob or hurt tourists. Overall I would highly recommend this hostel.

    Pablo and Wilma were amazing hosts. I felt like it was more like a home stay and I was a guest in their home. Pablo and his friends took me out and properly hosted me like I was a friend. If you want to experience favela life this is amazing, and it's perfectly safe here.

    The hostel is located in a Favela but is a safe place and very close to Copacabana Beach. Price/quality is good, not the best hostel but is cheap. Pablo and the staff are really nice guys, they are the best part of stay there.

    Room was dusty, dirty, and old. We were puffy and all stuffed up after sleeping a night in the room. The pictures of the place don't seem to be recent. The owner was not there and it was being run by work exchange people. They were very nice but the whole place was dirty and run down. The view was incredible at least. Use a moto taxi to get to the top if you can. Hot water was broken and sometimes the water will run out depending on the day and when it gets refilled.

    Unfortunately we were disappointed when arriving here, we didn’t know about all the steps to get up to the hostel, this wasn’t a trek we wanted to be doing a few times a day. The rooms were small and not particularly clean, the shower in the shared bathroom was awful with a ripped shower curtain and no lock. Everything seemed to be falling apart. We cut our stay short here. The only positive was the host Pablo he was helpful and gave good recommendations.
