Location Information

We are located in the most versatile district in Rio! Botafogo is the one located between the Corcovado Mountain - where Christ Redeemer is located - and the Sugar Loaf! From here you can reach them pretty easily, the same way you can reach Rio city Centre, Lapa, beaches and everything else Rio has to offer. All of this benefits are available at a hostel adressed at a quiet street, with lots of trees and perhaps little monkeys!
