Our hostel is located very close to the main attractions of Rio de Janeiro. Just a walking distance from the main samba clubs in the bohemian Lapa district and in front of Flamengo Park and Guanabara Bay which offer stunning views of the famous Sugar Loaf Mountain. And if you feel like getting a suntan in one of Rio’s most popular beaches, we are next to Flamengo beach, while Copacabana and Ipanema are a quick 10 minute metro ride.
