Perfect for girls travelling alone. But look, guys are very welcomed here as well, mainly the handsome one´s. op´s... we are talking about security!!!
PRICE: We have EXCELLENT prices from dorms to single or doubles. See that we are the most popular hostel in Rio de Janeiro! ALL our bunks are double deckers with very CONFORTABLE mattresses. Do not be afraid to book at the large dorm. It´s a quiet & spacious place on the 2nd floor plenty of toilets & showers. No worries!
CLEANLINESS: What is a good hostel without a daily housekeeping? Our maid also prepares delicious cakes for breakfast! If you wish something special, she can do for you... breakfast starts at 8:00h not 9:30 like many others. You can enjoy the day earlier.
LOCATION: buses in front, beside and in the back for simply EVERYWHERE in Rio de Janeiro. Next door to the subway (metro/tube). RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING.
*** this is FACT!!! *** Tourists' spots, shopping malls, supermarket, ATM Machines, banks, embassies, etc.
Doubts? Check what clients say about hostels in Botafogo. The area is not a big gringo-scamming machine like Copa/Ipa!
FUN if you like parties... this is the beginning. We have a bar with sound equipment that you can plug your I-pod. You can even manage the party or you can be our DJ... who knows? A pool table is available to use to free. This area is free to make the party you wish! Thanks God... it´s Friday night. Rio´s best nightlife is at Lapa. Everybody inside goes to this place
STAFF: This is hard to explain. We have, tall, short, fat, thin, blond, brunnette... just joking...
And... we have Moe (a kind of young Mom) which usually take care of you if you get sick, burned or if you want to eat some pop corn during the films sessions, or if you feel cold ask for some tea, or just to put a blanket when you come back late evening and sleep at the sofa after some beers.
Unfortunatelly we do not speak Russian, Georgian, Korean, but English, Deustch, French, Italian, Spanish & and of course Portuguese, we do. We are learning mandarin!!! We also provide portuguese classes for a reasonable price.
Ok... Don´t tell me more... book NOW!!!!
