Value
Upper-middle-class neighborhood Botafogo, located on Rio’s southern coastline, offers breathtaking views from any number of locales, but none beat the Morro da Urca peak, where you’ll snap panoramic pics of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, and downtown Rio de Janeiro. Photographers and history buffs will want to wander through Sao Joao Batista cemetery for the sculptures, tombs, and a monument for Carmen Miranda, the singer, dancer, and actress who became famous in Brazil in the 1920s.

From the outside we thought the taxi driver had got the wrong venue, as there is a simple tall black door, but not much else to see from the street. The staff (mostly) spoke decent enough English to get by, and the double room came with towels, an ensuite bathroom and TV. Location is good, with shops and bars nearby. We were happy enough to stay for 3 nights - our entire stay in Rio

This inn is close to the train station. Well located! I stayed at this inn many times. The room is clean and comfortable. I've never had any problems during my stay. There are many bars nearby where you can have fun with your friends. Breakfast is good.

Good location in Botafogo, which is hipper (and cheaper) than Ipanema and Copacabana. The hostel is round the corner from the metro and bars and restaurants, and shops - including a 24 hour place across the street. There are dorms and double rooms. The place is small, as are the rooms. The room I had had no window and a corridor right outside so could be a bit noisy, though not the end of the world. Personally I get claustrophobic with no window though that may not bother everyone. I had my own bathroom - again small but has the necessary. Aircon was good. Wifi was OK. Breakfast buffet was great for a hostel. Price was very reasonable especially over NY.

The owner can be quite rude when he's busy and the uncomfortable beds are placed so close together if one moves they all move. The location is miles away from the main beaches and during Carnival time this place charges the same as an average hotel just for a dorm bed?! Even though I pre-paid for 4 nights I left after 1 night and found a much friendlier hostel around the corner.
