I can´t say that the seaview provided at the pousada´s rooftop is smth to die for (it´s nice though!), but if u r looking for an absolutely authentic stay in Rio, that´s the right variant!
Avoid it if u have medical problems with the heart, respiratory system and joints - u´ll have to cover MANY stairs.
The favela itself is safe, don´t worry (but don´t boast ur 2000-euro-camera on the street).
Some rooms don´t have air conditioning.
