Above the city and in the green, yet very central, this is Brazil´s first favela hostel! Great views & very quiet environment in the middle of the city! Hostel Favelinha is on a hill in the heart of Rio, between Flamengo beach and the hip Santa Teresa. It's inside a small "Favela", where you can experience cultural life at its best! You overlook the sugar loaf and the Rio de Janeiro bay, but you are less than 10 minutes from the subway and all beaches.

We are open 24 hours and it is safe to come or go at any time of the day. Please note: Although we are very close to metro and bus lines, getting to the hostel always includes some walking up or downhill. No worries, the views and the nice atmosphere make up for it!
Prices are per person per night.
