We stayed in Vidigalhouse for five nights in the run-up to Carnaval and loved every second of it. Bruno and his family are so friendly and welcoming and the hostel itself is beautiful with amazing aircon in every room. Staying in Vidigal makes you feel like you are experiencing a more authentic Rio, and there is a real sense of... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and safe to say it is the best hostel we have stayed in on our travels by a distance. Staying in a favela was great - don't let it put you off - everyone is so friendly and it's one big community - more so than the more touristy areas of... More

Fernanda and Bruno offer more than just a hostel, they provide a home away from home. It is always kept perfectly clean but even better is the fact that you will always feel warmly welcomed. The staff in Vidigalhouse go above and beyond the normal call for people running such an establishment, they will do all they can to make... More

This is the hostel I stayed at while on my gap year volunteering with Real Gap in March of 2014. When I get there late in the evening during carnival, I was a little tired but carnival being what it is, I was straight out with the others from the hostel to soak it all up directly. If like me...

The owners of this hostel are so fun and friendly and make sure everyone staying there feels at home. The views from the patio are breathtaking and worth the hike up the hill in Vidigal. Great neighborhood with cool restaurants and Ipanema and Leblon just a quick walk or bus ride away. While in Vidigal, make sure to hike the... More

We stayed for 6 nights. We enjoyed the experience of staying in a favela but perhaps we stayed a couple of nights too long. Likes Great view from the rooftop, friendly staff, safe (we walked back at 3am from a night out), breakfast was included, air conditioning. Dislikes Inconvenient - you need to catch a motorbike and then a bus... More
