    We had an excellent stay here. The couple that run it are lovely :) They answered all our questions and we had dinner with the husband when we arrived. The view is incredible too! We're two blonde girls and we had no problems at all with safety. Must stay!!

    Like most people I was nervous about entering Vidigal, but the views looked amazing on the website, plus the Morro Dois Irmãos hike was there. I made my way up the steep streets and was welcomed warmly by Armando and Ruth. The view from the hostel did not disappoint and found that it was a busy hostel with a great atmosphere. The trepidation of being in Vidigal soon went away and found that I felt safer here than in main part of Rio. Varandas is a great hostel and would definitely recommend it.

    NÃO VOLTO MAIS. Limpeza péssima, atendimento ruim, embora tenha uma vista lindíssima e um Réveillon inesquecível. O ar condicionado do quarto não funcionava em pleno verão carioca, acabou a água e não deram água potável para nós, banheiros bastante sujos - sem limpeza regular.

    Check in was very slow, when we arrived we had to wait 10 min for someone to open the front door. Also, my friend had to break into the hostel in the morning cause nobody opened the door. I'd only say that they should improve their service if they want to charge 50 reais per night, that's the same price as one of the top-rated hostels in Rio. The floor was not so clean and the pillows were extremely gross. The hostel has a GREAT view!!! there are many places to go eat close to it. Also, there's a super nice
