I have been in lot of hostels around the world, but this may be the best one until now. I've stayed 4 nights there and I recommend it for everybody. Botafogo can be accessed by a 15 minute refreshing walk (with steps), but the peaceful environment really worths it.

Very clean and tidy with beautiful garden, hammocks and had everything I needed. As this is my first time in Brazil, Rob and Richard were more than helpful and I felt safe when walking around. The breakfast was abundant with fresh fruit, bread, delicious juice, smoothies and more. This is a fantastic place away from the crowd and peaceful. Botafogo... More

Dear guests, thankyou again for staying with us AND especially for taking the time to write in your review! So many recent guests have told us that they really loved their stay but that we have so many good reviews here that we really don't need any more! This just isn't true as TripAdvisor's ratings depend on current and continuous... More

We booked two nights because we wanted time to get over the jet-lag from NZ before joining a cruise, but this place was so delightful, and Rio so interesting that we wished that we had booked a couple of extra days so that we could have relaxed in the beautiful garden area, and seen more of the city instead of...

My friends and I stayed at O Veliero our first night of what is a four week stay in Brazil. We will be returning to O Veleiro for Carnival on Feb. 13. We are most eager to return to Rob and Richard's exemplary B&B. Everything is outstanding. The house is beautiful. One can easily see the work they have pit... More

Staying at O Veleiro is akin to staying with friends, which is a comfortable place to be in a place you may not have figured out yet. My husband and I took our honeymoon here and it was more than delightful. We got the friendly shared experience of a hostel but with much better accommodations. Rob and Richard are on... More
