Description - Hostel

Located in Praia de Botafogo, on a safe private street, ALPHA HOSTEL offers you clean, comfortable and friendly accommodations near every interesting site to visit while staying in town. Botafogo is one of the most charming neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro. At the beginning of the 20th century, when Rio was the capital city of Brazil, politicians and entrepreneurs chose Botafogo to build their homes. For those who would like to check out Rio´s turn of the century architecture and atmosphere, Botafogo and nearby Flamengo, Catete and Gloria are the places to walk through.

ALPHA HOSTEL is also a step away from the seashore of Botafogo Beach and beautiful Flamengo Park, and a block away from a subway station that would take you fast to many points of interest in Rio, such as Copacabana and Rio Downtown. Several bus lines, at a three minute walking distance, would take you to every other part of the city that you might want to visit, such as the beaches of Ipanema, Leblon, Barra and Recreio, or the picturesque Feira de São Cristóvão and the bohemian Lapa.

Count on us if you need help in designing your tour through Rio and surroundings or simply getting information or contacting the best value for you money tours. Our team is prepared to assist you with directions for your shopping around, transportation and meals, always looking to help you get the most within your budget.
