Location Information

Perfect location! We are located in a fantastic area.
- First, we are in Botafogo which means easy access to Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon and São Conrado beach and very easy to reach the city center.
- Second, the metro station is less than 10 steps from the hostel!
- Third, Buses to everywhere in Rio de Janeiro, with a stop in front of the hostel.
- Fourth, all you need is nearby like Shopping malls, banks, embassies and consulates, bakery, supermarket, post office, restaurants.
In fact, Botafogo is very cultural with many bars, museums, classy cinemas & theaters, cultural centres and lots to do for upscale backpackers will be find here!
- And fifth but not the last...for you maybe the best...the prices are for locals, not for tourists.

Have you heard about Botafogo before? It is the best point to see the Christ, the Sugar Loaf and the nicest and coolest area in Rio called Urca where you can see many locals drinking beer at local bars and fishing at the sea! An experience you will never forget!
