About Rio Soul Hostel

The Rio Soul Hostel is installed in the premises of a lovely three-floor house located in a residential area, known by its quiet and calm environment - needed to say, only 500mts from the nearest Police Station, so a very safe area indeed, but also near by the majority of the most exciting and attractive places of Rio de Janeiro. Geographically, the benefits of its location in Botafogo, one of the first neighborhoods of Zona Sul and just a few minutes from every point of interest in Rio, it's the real deal!
The house was fully reformed and refurbished, adjusted in order to offer a calm, safe environment with well cheap rates. It features a functional kitchen fully equipped with everything a traveler may need to cook his own meals, available from 11 am to 11 pm, 2 common bathrooms located in the corridor of the dorms, free internet and wi-fi connection in the common areas, and our brilliant always-smiling staff is properly qualified to provide the best 24/7 service to our guests in Portuguese, Spanish and English.
