"Books is full of character. Eccentric murals cover the walls and are a good fit with the eccentric staff and clientele. The emphasis here is on young travellers who want to meet other young travellers, and usually drink…"Read all Books Hostel reviews

To talk about yourself is really difficult. We don't feel prepared to do it. We prefer to let the crowd speak for us. We just work very hard to provide great experiences here. We love Rio and we want you all to love it too.
Books Hostel is a "Nice hostel with a great decoration" and "a plethora of cool people."
"The place is full of cool artwork and has a good vibe". "Live here and be happy" is the motto on the wall, and we certainly live by it. The "staff are a group of friends who love nothing more than hanging out with guests and make them feel right at home." "They help you beyond what you would expect."
If you are travelling alone Books is "A fantastic place to meet other guests". "The hostel is located in the middle of Lapa and Santa Teresa" "which hosts the most amazing street parties" and "it is really easy to transport to the City and the Beaches."
We can say that "Caring, cultural and fun are the three best words to describe it."
"Truly a gem of a place".

Books Hostel is located right in between Lapa and Santa Teresa. We’re near the hustle n’ bustle of Lapa and the calmness of Santa Teresa. Lapa is known as the cradle of bohemian, also famous for its architecture, beginning with its classical arches – built to act as conduit in the times of colonial Brazil and now serve as a signal to the cable cars that climb the hill of Santa Teresa. It is also an absolute reference point for night lovers! One of the hallmarks of this spot is the harmony with which the various musical tribes coexist. Since the 50s called “Montmartre Carioca,” Lapa is where intellectuals, artists, politicians, and especially typical cariocas get together to celebrate the samba, forró, MPB, chorinho, electronic music and rock. In recent years the neighborhood has become established as the second largest destination of foreign tourists in the city, behind only Copacabana.
