Directions to hostel king george
From the Bus Station;
Best option is to take a radio taxi from just outside the bus station. You pay a fixed fee at the counter. Will cost about 25 Reais to get you here. Walk straight past the counters inside the bus station as these work out more expensive.
Another option is to take the �Real� Bus from in front of the bus station. It's cheaper but takes much longer. It costs 4 Reais, & the drivers speak English. Walk past the taxi rank just outside the station & wait for the bus at the side of the road opposite. They run every 15 minutes and will stop on the main beach road (Avendida Atlantica). Ask the driver to stop at the �Copacabana Palace� hotel. Walk two blocks away from the beach on �Rua Rodolfo Dantas� onto �Rua Barato Ribeira�. Cross the road and then walk to the left taking the first road on your right 'Rua Tonelero' just before the metro station. Walk across the next traffic lights over the road 'Ladeira do Leme'. Walk past the petrol station onto 'Rua Assis Brasil' then turn right onto the road to the right just after the petrol station, 'Rua Guimaraes Natal'. Follow the road round two bends then walk up the road to the left, 'Travessa Guimaraes Natal'. The hostel is the first house on the right hand side.
Alternatively, walk over to the other side of the station and walk across the road, past the taxis to the local bus station which is at the other side of the road. Catch any bus to Copacabana, most of which run along �Rua Barato Ribeiro�. Look out for �Arcoverde� Metro station on your right. Get out at the Metro station. Walk down the road before the metro station to the right, head to the petrol station then follow the same instructions given above.
From the Airport
Again, the best option, particularly if you're in a group, would be to take a taxi. Depending on the time and the driver, it should cost between 50-70 Reais if you are lucky as it could cost a lot more as the majority don't think twice about trying to rip off gringos.
A cheaper option is the �Real� bus. Walk out of the arrivals lounge, take a right past the waiting taxis and look out for the airport bus stop. At the time of writing this cost around 6 Reais. (See bus station info for instructions on where to get off the bus). However, be warned this takes a long time! Up to 3 times as long as a taxi.
An alternative is to take the express real bus to the domestic airport �Santos Dumont�, around R$4. This only takes around half an hour. From this airport it's about a R$15 taxi fare to copacabana.
