The directions in the video on the website were super helpful (but we also made sure we arrived in daylight). The room was large and clean, and so was the bathroom with a nice hot shower. The breakfast was superb with toast, fruits and cereal too (for us veggies). Nice common areas to chill in, and lovely views of Rio, especially from the terrace
The lady who takes care of the property is like a mother to you. Lovely, funny and helpful. Her son Gabriel is helpful too, he walked me to the cab spot at 5am as i didnt want to walk via the favela on my own, he came to pick me up when i first got there. They were helping with whatever was needed. the fact the hostel is in the favela may concern you, but go for it, the view is why i came back even when i returned to rio next time. Its safe, neighbors are respectful and helpful and its safe to walk through even at night. just use common sense.
The bathrooms need more care for sure, they should clean the rooms and the bathrooms more often. Kitchen was always clean.
Amazing views Friendly staff Really good breakfast Good WiFi Friendly favela Easy to find if you watch the video
