          I loved my stay at Meiai. The hostel was clean and decent and the beds were comfortable. The area of Botafogo has everything you need to make your stay in Rio one that you won't forget. 100% recommended!

          Hello, I'm arriving to Rio on September 18th 10:00 am, wanted to know if it is possible to book without a credit card since my credit card will be "activated" just for the period of my trip (Venezuela access to foreign currency), and I also wanted to know if I can do check in at that time, I will arrive to Santos Dumont airport. Thanks in advance for your support.
