Tupiniquim Hostel Rio de Janeiro Reviews

Description

For carnival there is a minimum 3 nights stay at special rates ... please consider that after you have made your Hostelz.com Reservation (which is 10 %) we will contact you to further pay another 40 % (by credit card or Western Union Transfer) prior to arrival (unfortunately it has to be done after the initial reservation because we cannot do it within Hostelz.com) ... also consider that this is non-refundable ... we take all these precautions because loads and loads of people ask for this specific period and we cannot afford to have people 'not showing up'

For new year's eve there is a 3 night (30th, 31st december and 1st january) package with the same conditions ...

I mean, are you really willing to pay up to double the price so you can stay in some dumb-dirty hostel just because it is like 100 meters nearer ipanema beach ?? ... we are at a 5 min. bus ride from a really nice-not-overcrowded beach but we are light years ahead the vast majority of the hostels in terms of service, staff, personality, fun, etc ...

Perharps you are willing to stay on just another hostel full of europeans, americans, aussies and israelis ?? no ?? yes ?? ... what if you could stay in a place where 60 % of the guests are brazilians ?? then you would get a real experience WITHIN the hostel, wouldn�t that be bloody cool ??

Man, half of the hostels in Rio are complete crap and most of the other half are just dumb-nothing-to-do-except-for-sleeping places ... so you think you are pretty smart by booking a place 5 reals cheaper ?? a place with triple bunks, 16 + people dorms, thin mattresses, lousy breakfast, no bar, no fun ??

... Tupiniquim is for sure the most original hostel in rio de janeiro - (O Globo Newspaper Review in feb. 2008) ... you are not staying in just another hostel, this is a really different hostel ...

We accept visa, mastercard, diners club, american express cards !!

Location and Contact

Location

• From the International Airport (Galeão):
• Take the bus from the 'Real' company that goes to Copacabana (about R$ 8 reais) and ask the driver to drop you at the stop of Mourisco, a big mirror-building (last stop at Botafogo Beach) ... having the Mourisco on your left you'll see a viaduct, after you go under it you will already be in Rua Prof. Álvaro Rodrigues, go straight and the 4th street on the left is Paulo Barreto ...
• Resuming: viaduct, straight ahead, fourth on the left ... (40 min. on the bus and 8 min. walk)
• From the Domestic Airport (Santos-Dumont):
• Take any of the following buses (about R$ 2,50 reais) that go through aterro do Flamengo: 404, 413, 415 or 455 and drop on the same bus stop I've just described, that is: Mourisco (10 min. on the bus, 8 min. walk)
• From the Central Bus Station (Rodoviária):
• There are 2 ways: if you go the Mourisco way (same instructions) you'll take bus 127 or 128
• The other way is to take bus 136, 170, 172 or 178 and drop on the 2nd. bus stop of São Clemente Street (right after 'Casa de Rui Barbosa'), take 19 de Fevereiro St., cross Voluntários da Pátria St., go up half a block to get to Paulo Barreto St.... (30 min. on the bus, 8 min. walk)
• Coming from the old Tupiniquim
• To you, guys that are already part of the Tribe, coming out of the old Tupiniquim go to the little plaza, there on the supermarket is General Polidoro St., go against the flux of the cars, fourth on the right is Paulo Barreto ... (about 6 min. walking)
