Location and Contact

Location

• There are two ways to get to the hostel - from below or from above:
• From BELOW the way begins at the 'Largo do Machado'-square, which is conveniently located in the district of Catete/Laranjeiras and has a Subway station of the same name.
• There is a small bus (RIO TOTAL) departing directly in front of the church of the square during the entire day until 11 p.m. - it leaves approximately every 10 minutes and costs R$ 2,50. It takes only five minutes with this bus to the top of the dead end street (Rua Pereira da Silva) which is the beginning of the favela.
• Just stay in the bus until it turns at the top of a little hill at the end of a dead end street. Get out right after it has turned and climb the hill to the pousada - you will find signs which will show you the exact direction, or ask any of the locals who will happily show you the way to the 'pousada' ;) !
• It will take about 5 minutes, but it's a steep climb of about 75 meters. Fortunately enough you will be able to enjoy a cold beer or caipirinha on top of the terrace of the 'Pousada Favelinha' right afterwards ;)
• -------------------------------------------------------------------
• Getting there from ABOVE is beautiful: The street car of Santa Teresa 'Bondinho' takes you from the City Centre or from Lapa directly to the upper entrance of the favela. The bus 006 and 007 also leaves from Metro Station 'Central' or from Lapa to go uphill. Tell the driver to let you out opposite 'Falete'. The address is 'Rua Almirante Alexandrino 2023' and access is through the College 'Asuncao CENAM'
• A few white minibuses also take the same way from the 'Arcos da Lapa', ask them if they go into the direction 'Silvestre' to be in the right bus ;)
• The entrance of the college is the entrance of the favela at the same time.
• A short stairway leads up a small hill, where you can relax and already take in the great views. Then it's downhill about three minutes until you see the hostel.
• If you take a taxi, also tell the driver the address of the Colegio Asuncao CENAM: Rua Almirante Alexandrino 2023
• =============================================
• AIRPORT TRANSFER: If you give us your arrival dates (flight number, city of origin, arrival time) we will gladly pick you up at the airport. Our driver has to charge 110 Reais, but this is the same price as a regular taxi, only without hassle and rip-off and with baggage service all the way to our door :).
• If you wish to be picked up, please send us a mail to us after you have made the reservation!
• Have a great trip! Holger, Matti, Solange and the Pousada Favelinha Team
