- “ I had a great experience in Safari Hostel during Rock in Rio 2013! Paulo, the owner, received me very well since the beginning. Actually, even before that. Once my arrival was a little bit late, he called me on my cell phone to see if I was ok. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt like home. It's a peaceful place surrounded by nature. You can go to Floresta da Tijuca walking. It's right at the corner! No car horns when you wake up! Just some birds singing! ”

- “ Fantastic hostel!! The only downside is that it is quite far out of the centre but the public transport is easy, reliable and safe to use. Plus we stayed during carnival so staying outside the centre meant getting a decent sleep!! Paolo and his team are brilliant. I have stayed in many hostels and this one was the best. They can't do enough for you, and really treat you like family. So much so that when I was ill they went to the pharmacy for me. I can't rave about this place enough!! ”

- “ Great home located in a historic place in Rio de Janeiro. Near the national park, for those people who likes sports such as surfing and hiking in the florest is perfect. ”
