Brazil Hostels

Brazil Comments

If you want to enjoy a safe and beautiful place with all the basic commodities, you should visit Ubatuba.
Búzios … Buzios is a small resort town with a bunch of mediocre hotels, restaurants, and it's full of old people and mothers pushing baby buggies. This town is overhyped and needs a facelift. [I deleted the long story about his taxi being searched etc because I didn't know how relevant it was for a city comment and it was also hard to understand, but if it should be put back in let me know.]
São Paulo … If you can arrange a walking tour, take it. If not, try to visit the Edificio Banespa. It is the tallest building in Sao Paulo and will give you an excellent view of the city.
I've been in Saquarema last February and what a great surprise Ii had with the very nice city and amazing beaches. The average prices are half than Rio prices. I recommend to visit Saquarema -- it's really nice and sunny!
Itacaré is a magical city with a cool athmosphere, beautiful beaches, the river, the sunset, the people, the forro nigths, everything in Itacaré is so nice.
Arraial d'Ajuda is a very special place -- beautiful people, cool people, nice beach. There are so many things to do and to see. It's one of the best places in Brazil. I loved it.
Rio de Janeiro … It's for people who want to meet great and wonderful people and beautiful beaches. It's the greatest city in Brazil, but be careful!
São Lourenço da Serra … Visited there the weekend of Dec 10th. What a lovely place....I truly fell in love with it. People were very nice...and the whole experience was unforgettable. I certainly intend to return.
Salvador … Definitely stay in the Pelourinho district. There are a lot of things to do in the area. Beware of beggars and people trying to sale you little ribbons as "gifts" or "presents". They are trying to scam you. Visit the beaches, especially on Sat/Sun.
Florianópolis … It's awesome and amazing -- a must-see place to chill.
Curitiba … The city is very clean and organized, worth a visit.
Porto Seguro … Genial. Un lugar fantastico. Verdaderamente un paraiso. [English Translation: "Brilliant. A fantastic place. Truly a paradise."]
