This place rocks!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 6, 2004

I love this place! When you're in Rio your options for accommodations are hotels, hostel, or apartments for rent.

I was told by other travelers that this place was much cleaner compared to other hostels. This place is very cosy and there are many chances for you to meet other travelers from different places in the world.

3 guys who were childhood friends own this place and work here as well as additional staff. They were all super friendly.

I've kept in touch with them all since leaving Brazil!

Accommodation costs R$35/night = $12US/night

Unique Quality: This hostel has tons of information about local attractions and nightlife! One of the owners is a musician, therefore, he knows a lot about the different bars and clubs.

I chose not to stay in Ipanema or Copacbana because lots of tourist do. Botafogo Easy Hostel is closely located to bus lines and the metro so you can easily get to other parts of Rio for really cheap!

I recommend to anyone who is doubting about what hostel to choose out of the official and unofficial list, to stick to the official one.

The official one:

Albergue da Juventude CHAVE DO RIO DE JANEIRO
Endereço: Rua General Dionísio, 63- Botafogo
Fone: (21) 22860303
Site: www.riohostel.msis.com.br/
E-Mail: riohostel@riohostel.com.br

The people working ae adorable ready to help with organizing your visit of
Rio, and they all speak very well english.

The price is about 30$ which is more expensive than average for accomodation in Rio, but it is worth paying the supplement.

Botafogo is safe, you are close to market for quick foodshopping at night, their are busses next to the hostel so as to get to any point in Rio without any problem.

Unique Quality: All rooms are shared one, with an average of about 20/25 beds. But, there is a room of 4, and one of 12 beds, both with their own bathroom, excellent when travelling with a group of people. Make sure to book well in advance, to get the rooms you want!!

Breakfast is GORGEOUS: fresh typical Brasilian fruit, fresh bread and fresh juice...... a great way of starting the day!!!!!!
