# Please notice we have special rates and/or a different minimum night stay during Carnival, special events and New Years Eve.#Explore Rio de Janeiro beyond the obvious and feel like a real carioca.* ABOUT: My name is Myle, I'm a singer, writer and teacher. Walter, my husband, writes plays for theater and scripts for movies and TV. We both have 37 years old and we enjoy hosting nice, friendly and open-minded people, with whom we can share experiences and from whom we can learn a little bit!* OUR HOSTEL: We live in a charming house built in 1938, with 750 square meters, just below the famous Cristo Redentor statue. Located in the foothills of the Tijuca Forest, yet only 2 blocks from the main street - where you can find plenty of public transportation options to everywhere in the city - our guest house, called Corcovado Hostel, has no direct entrance from the road. To walk up to the house, it is necessary to climb an ancient staircase, as shown in the pictures! Besides the bedrooms, Corcovado Hostel has a large open veranda overlooking the mountains with a dining table, washing area, sun-loungers and a shower, perfect for relaxing, sun bathing and to soak up the atmosphere of Rio. And with some luck, little monkeys and toucans will show up to say hello!* TRANSPORTATION: From the main street (2 blocks from the hostel), the metro bus takes you to Largo do Machado metro station in 15 minutes where you can catch the metro to the centre or to the beaches. It also takes only 20 minutes by bus to Lapa and Centro (downtown Rio) and to Ipanema and Copacabana. There is also easy access to Santa Teresa, Paineiras and Tijuca Forest.
