A fun, well decorated and clean hostel. It was really easy meet other travellers and do things or just hang around the lovely little bar area with incredible views of Copacabana. For me the main attraction was being in Babilonia, a small favela behind Copacabana. You leave the hustle and bustle of skyscrappers and cars below and climb into this genuine community of local residents nestled amongst the rainforest on the hill. The food and drink are cheap, and there are plenty of opportunities to experience genuine Carioca life just by hanging around the local bars or community areas.

The hostel is situated just 5-10mins walking distance from Copacabana Beach. Beautiful hostel with a very cozy atmosphere. All the staff members were very friendly and helpful. I particularly enjoyed the company of David and Pablo who took me under their wings and showed me best local amenities and Rio night life. Would definitely recommend this place!
