About Barraco #55

BARRACO #55 is a small and cosy hostel and cultural center in the area of Alvorada, a lively neighborhood within a favela of Rio, that is now safe through the presence of the UPP police. We aim to give you a true Brazilian experience by getting to know the community and participating in many Brazilians' day to day life. You will walk around through the allies, enjoy the fantastic views, meet fantastic people and take the cable car to see the community (and the entire city!) from above.

In our cultural centre, we offer you the chance to exchange something with the community. We give audiovisual and documentary workshops, musical classes and recycling workshops in which you can participate. We also have 'open' workshops planned to put your own skills into practice. You can also take a cooking or manicuring course, or learn Portuguese from a local. You decide what you want!

We have a fully equipped kitchen, living room and roof terrace in the hostel, where you can cook, chill out or work on a project.

Accommodation Information

At the moment we have 8 beds available. You can choose between a cosy 8 bed dorm and an even cosier double bed room, both with air conditioning. The rooms are clean and quiet and bed sheets, linen and towels are included. Breakfast is arranged collaboratively, every guests provides something.

The bathroom is humble and shared, but has all basic needs at its disposal.

Barraco #55 has a quiet rooftop terrace where you can enjoy a beautiful view of both the favela and the city center, or take a nap in the hammocks.

Cancellation Policy

You can cancel until 48 hours before arrival. After that, or in cases of no-show, we charge the first night.
