With the colourful gate a door opens to step from the random side street into a magical and unique oasis! The mingle of pure nature and art is the perfect surrounding to relax and reflect upon the beautiful adventures of iguacu while the various hammocks, arm chairs and couches as well as the football table and the hostel bar offer...

This hostel has great location especially if you want to experience the diffrent landmarks, such as the iguazu falls.The breakfast is good with yogurt, bread, fruits and sometimes a little extra. The owner is really helpful and goes the extra mile when it comes to service, for example he gave us a ride to the center when needed. Overall a... More

We stayed some days in Nov 2013. I loved this hostel that much, that I still remember it now (after sooo many other hostels). It is clean and so colorful. The staff is very helpful and friendly - always smiling. To stay at their bar is a pleasure. As it is a relatively small hostel you get easy around with... More

We opted to camp- and the tent was fairly dirty, but we got what we paid for- dirt. It got cold in the night, which was a first for our time in Brazil, so if you do opt to camp, be ready. The indoors has good wifi, nice bunk beds, and outdoors has a bar, a cool converted minivan/room, and... More

My husband and I stayed at Favela Chic in March and everything was FANTASIC!!! The hostel has heaps of space to chill out and relax in. The loung room was built around a beautiful tree, the floors are unique from mosaic tiles to rock gardens with tree cut stepping pads across it. The bar is relaxing and has hammocks and... More

All round good hostel. Nick (owner) and Pablo make you feel very at ease. A home away from home. We initially planned to stay for one night and get a bus the following afternoon. Nick kindly let my friends and I stick around until our bus later that afternoon. When the bus was full we head straight back to Favela... More

I enjoyed my stay here. The communal garden is very chill - lots of hammocks, sofas for a relaxing time. Most people are out at the falls all day, but it does get a bit more lively in the evenings. The staff are friendly but NEVER around - I know they have a lot of problems with people not paying.... More
