So forget everything you have heard about dangerous favelas in rio. I ended up staying here for almost a month during the world cup and loved every minute of it! It was definitely the perfect place to stay. This little gem is perched on top of a hill overlooking the amazing view of copacabana beach and the surrounding areas, the view is literally the beet thing about this place. Gabriel also does a wonderful job of making you feel right at home and I really appreciated the hospitality of the entire favela as well. You will find way more hospitable and friendly people in the favela rather than the rest of Rio. I never felt in danger and was humbled by the way people live and breath in the favela. Definitely stay here for an authentic Rio experience!
