I have stayed in dozens of hostels in my life and this one is by far the dirtiest one ever. I know what I should lower my expectations as it is in the Favellas but I stayed here for about a week during the Rio Olympics and for the private room it was $80 a night which is insane!!!!! Yes,...

To experience the best and safest underground Rio nightlife. Hiphop/ RnB/ Reggae/ Dancehall.... Easy access via moto taxi or comunal bus called kombi. The entrance of the favela aswell and entrance of the club is guarded with police. Reasonable prices on drinks.

A brief stay but enjoyed every minute of it. Great vista, great hosts, great experience. The favela is beautiful and not far from Rocinha which is equally wonderful. Be sure to book a tour of these two great favelas. Thanks to Andréas (and Jody) for making us so welcome.

We read the reviews so were expecting it to be a bit rough around the edges. But it was ideal for a few days. The views are the best in town, we arrived on a Saturday night unaware there was to be a massive all night party, which was a lot of fun ( but maybe check before you book...

This place is Amazing, they have one of the best views in Rio and the room is Ok. The prices are fine as well. The only problem is to get there, it is on top of the favela, so you have to get the by van or moto. It is a good experience!!!

I went to this place a lot as I lived in Vidigal for some months. This place is truly unique because of the view you have of the city and beaches (breathtaking specially at dusk). I went there to watch football a couple of times as they always had a big screen showing the world cup games or just simply...

Probably my most favourite hostel I have ever stayed in. My and my girlfriend stayed here for 4 nights. Fairly easy to get there, catch a combi from the bottom of Favela Vidigal. The hostel has the most beautiful view of Rio I have ever seen and its located at the top of one of Rios nicest favelas. For an...

Amazing view with music. You can see the amzing circle of the beach Ipanema and Leblon.. Up in the height is this amazing Hotel n Bar. They have food events on certain weekends not to forget Indian food night and their Run Vdg party that goes for the night.
