Myself and my boyfriend started our 6 month backpacking trip in Rio and originally was only due to stay for 3 days, however after our 1st night in Vidigalhouse, we loved it so much we stayed for 1 week. It truly was the best hostel off our trip, run by the most amazing family, Bruno, Fernanda and Victoria are the best. They treat you like you are part off there family from the moment you walk in, the hostel itself is small but its perfect location if you really want to experience a true local experience and amazing value for money. Bruno took us on a private hike to the two Brother mountains which is a must, also to a local football match and the BBQ was so much fun, where there is unlimited food and drinks for such a small price and you get to dance with there beautiful daughter Julia. The view is spectacular and location is literally 10-15 min's walk to the beach and easy access to all main attractions. It was the safest place I felt in Rio and would 100% return.
