Mambembe Hostel Reviews

Location and Contact


• From the international airport “Galeão” (GIG):
• Option 1: Uber - recommended - (approx. BRL 35,00)
• Once you are at the arrival area, connect to airport wifi, open your Uber app, type “Mambembe Hostel” in the destination field and follow the instructions on the app. The Uber drivers are not allowed to stop at the arrival area, only at the departure area. So, you will have to take the elevator up to the departure area and wait for your driver.
• Option 2: Regular Taxi (approx. BRL 60,00)
• When you are in the arrival area go outside to the area where all the taxis stop. Look for the line of yellow taxis. Get in the first taxi in line and make sure the taxi driver turns on the taximeter! Do NOT order your taxi at the taxi counters inside the building as they have a fixed price of BRL 100,00 or more.
• Option 4:
• Bus + Taxi ( approx. 30,00): Once in the arrival area go outside where all the taxis are, look to the right and at the far end you should see a blue bus with 'premium auto ônibus' written on it. Take the bus (BRL 18,85) and get off at Cinelandia metro station. From there you can get a normal taxi on the street to the Hostel. The taxi from 'Cinelandia' to the Hostel shouldn't cost more than BRL 12,00. If you are traveling light you may also walk from 'Cinelandia' to Mambembe Hostel as it is only 1km.
• Option 3:
• Bus + Metro (BRL 10,00): This option is for the budget minded traveler who doesn't mind to spend a little more time for transportation to the hostel in order to save some extra money. Once at the arrival area look for the ticket booth that sells tickets for the BRT bus. Buy your ticket, then go outside and slightly to your left you will see a blue modern looking bus. Get on the bus and get off at the stop called 'Vicente de Carvalho'. Take the pedestrian bridge and follow the 'metro' signs. Get on the metro direction 'Botafogo' and get off at 'Cinelandia' metro station. From 'Cinelandia' it's a 1km walk to Mambembe Hostel.
• From Airport Santos Dumont:
• Uber/Taxi: 10 min - BRL 10,00 - 15,00
• From Rodoviária Novo Rio:
• Uber: 15 min BRL 12,00
• The Uber drivers are not allowed to stop at the arrival area as it is reserved for taxis. After ordering your Uber follow the instructions in your app. You will have to go up the stairs in order to get to the other side of the bus terminal. Go out the front door and locate your Uber driver.
• Bus: Take the 497 or 362 bus and get off at the last stop before the arches of Lapa. Walk back for half a block on Riachuelo street and turn left at the first crossroad (Silvio Romero street). Go up until the end of the street where you´ll see a large stairway on your left hand side. Go up the stairway, the white house with red windows in front of you is Mambembe Hostel.
