Liked: The stuffs, especially Fei An, are very friendly and helpful. I feel like home. I love this place and I feel save to walk around. The local people who stay in this area are very friendly and helpful too. So make this as your first choice and you will see another side of Rio De Jeneiro.

Liked: The hostel is located in one of the favela's of Rio. The 4 hosts of the hostel were all very friendly and willing to help me with whatever question I had. While staying at their hostel I felt part of the community! Several workshops - such as a workshop to make wallets from waste - are organized for the residents of Barracco and the habitants of the favela. I even got offered to give an English course to the children of the neighborhood. This was really one of the most interesting places I visited on my trip!

Liked: Great place! Friendly staff, nice breakfast and lovely roof terrace. The neighborhood is very friendly and you can find everything you need close by. You can make your own food in the kitchen or find something nice to eat in one of the shops down the street. The monthly musical jam is a great evening to meet people, have fun and experience a real Brazilian athmosphere, and the film evenings on the square are nice as well! I highly recommend this place!

Disliked: When I arrived the place was still starting up so the beds were not there yet, but now that is all solved.

Liked: A different side of Rio and really nice to meet the locals! Despite the view that favelas are dangerous I didn't feel insecure and had a wonderful time.

Disliked: It's a little far from the beaches and centre.
