Joy Hostel was born from the dream of three childhood friends to connect the world to their city, country and culture. Passionate about traveling and getting to know new cultures, they decided to create a place where people could meet, share experiences and build new friendships. The hostel is different from any hostel or hotel you have stayed at before in Brasilia. It is a place where the main goal is to have new cultural and social experiences, where you share adventures and stories with others, and make new friends.

The Hostel resembles the modern Brazilian country/farm house. With details in mahogany wood, such as pillars and a mezzanine, it brings the feeling of the countryside to the Capital city of Brazil. The Hostel has a large garden with flowers and fruit trees. Its decor is simple, with the right mix of modern and traditional, which makes guests really feel at home. Some items, such as a custom-made orange pool table and a modern and colorful reception desk bring a touch of joy and youthfulness to the decor.

The Joy Hostel is located in ​Vila Planalto, a central neighborhood in Brasilia, just a few-minutes-walk from the official residence of the President of the Republic. Built in 1957, in the form of a camp, to receive workers during the construction of Brasilia, Vila Planalto was to be dismantled with the inauguration of the new Federal Capital in 1960. After 60 years, it has consolidated itself as a small neighborhood of 7 thousand inhabitants, with excellent quality of life, a thriving commerce and a disputed gastronomic pole. Free from violence, with narrow streets, wooden buildings, Vila Planalto still maintains the characteristics and customs of the countryside.
