    This place is amazing!! I wish I could have stayed longer. After a few days, I no longer felt like a visitor; I was family. I was so comfortable here, I really didn’t want to leave. Yes, it’s in a favela. Yes, there are steps. The thing is, when you leave, you miss the steps and the community that comes with being in a favela. Things that “matter”: good breakfast, hot showers, clean rooms, breathtaking views. I would live here if I could, so would definitely recommend and be back!

    I had a great time at Walk on the Favela! The staff is awesome and they worked so hard to create a welcoming and fun atmosphere. Every night they had barbeques on the rooftop which was a great place to meet all of the other guests. Overall I had a great experience and would highly recommend it!

    English below コパカバーナビーチから徒歩約15分のところにあるホステル。坂を登り、途中で小さな門をくぐって階段を上った先にあります。坂と階段が割とあるためスーツケースの方は大変かもしれません。ファベーラというネーミングですが、最低限の注意を払えば問題ないかと思います。システムエラーでダブルブッキングになり部屋を失いかけましたが、スタッフの対応もよく、すぐ隣のマネージャー宅に泊めてもらいました(個室だったのでドミトリーより良かったかも笑)。夜は屋上テラスでシュラスコ(20レアル)も美味しかったですし、とても楽しめました! This hostel was 15 min away from Copacabana beach & everything was amazing, except double booking was happened. However, staff were kind and flexible, and they made us stay at the manager’s house, which was great. I’d come again

    We had an amazing time here! We were actually a bit scared to stay in the favela and people said different things about this place, so we went a day a head to check it out - but there is nothing to worry about. It is really safe - we are two young women and stayed over new years, and it was a great time. The staff are soo nice and the rooftop was great with a beautiful view over the city. Thank you for an amazing stay! :)

    The view from top floor it worth the walk up the hill and stairs. Plus a decent breakfast is included. I felt very safe there. But there were not many traveler's staying there. Also it's attached to a jiu jitsu gym witch starts practice Monday through Friday rather early. But close to the metro and semi close to the beach. Nice staff

    Hostel is very basic. The hill is a bit of a hike if you don't want to wait for the motor taxi, but is very central. Beds are quite cheap and awkward to make, but they are comfortable. Internet cuts out a lot, but employees are very friendly. Can be hard to find entrance if you're not sure where it is.

    DONT COME TO THIS HOSTEL IF TRAVELLING WITH A SUITCASES. The description makes the stair climb sound easy, which with a backpack is doable, but not with suitcase. The hostel is great location, 5 min walk to siquiera campos metro and 15 from copacabana beach. Views out to copacabana and Christ redeemer. Cool rooftop bar. However bunk beds are incredubky hard and wobbly to climb. Rooms rarely cleaned, especially the rooftop kitchen. Staff were a little 'too friendly' with the female travell

    The hostel is located at the beginning of the favela, its quite safe in that sense, its a 10 minute walk to the closest metro station. The beds were not comfortable at all, not even mentioning the pillows. The are not enough bathrooms for everyone and they are always dirty, the rooms smell. A good thing about the hostel is the atmosphere, the guests are really cool and do not seem to care about comfort at all. So I would recommend this hostel if you want to safe some money.
