Being the cheapest available the normal rule applies. You get what you pay for. We got what we expected so there were absolutely no problems. The location is the best with amazing view and the guy at the reception spoke very good english!!! He was nice enough also to guard things for us since the wintercoats we brought along from... More

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... More

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... More

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.

This hostel is truly something special, with amazing views of the favela. Rooms are ideal for what I was after. What made this trip extra spesh, was the friendly treasure in the world my trej trek tour guide. Would love to come here again. Thanks for having us!

We and my boyfriend went up to the hostel on our second last day because we'd heard the view was something you can't miss. It's true, it's unbelievable! We didn't stay the night, we just went for drinks and some food. We each got a motor-taxi from the bottom, be careful though. The drivers don't like you holding on to... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights. It's difficult to get there, but not impossible. The neighborhood (favella) seemed to be a little bit dangerous at first, but ended being really friendly after all. The view is amazing! The only valuable feature from this hostel. When we get there our room was not ready, even though we had... More

Run by an absolute hero (Andreas) this hostel is different from any other. Firstly it's in the favella, but don't worry it's safer than anywhere in Rio. Second, THE VIEW! Best view in Rio, looks over whole city. Third the vibe, it's very relaxed and you will inevitably meet some great travel companions.
