Any hostel that cannot keep track of reservations should not be in business - surely it's the simpliest part of the job!!! Apart from that the hostel is small and pokie. The owner is a disgrace and only interested in your money instead of your safety so to enjoy a hassle free Rio trip - STAY AWAY!
Folks anyone know a hostel close to this one
The LightHouse Hostel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Barao da Torre, 175. Casa 20, Ipanema
Mates are staying there and its currently boked out for Feb 6. There is a spot available on the 10th. Appreciate anyone who is familliar with the area who could give me a hostel close by. thanks.
Got sorted in the end
A helpful map
in the end closest I could find.
It is still more or less Carnaval time on those dates, so you may have trouble with availability.
The alley that your frind's hostel is on, at #175 Rua Barao de Torre, has a bunch more, all side by side.
Lighthouse casa (house) #20
Rio Ipanema Hostel casa 14
Girl Form Ipanema casa 3
Ipanema Wave casa 5
Also Karisma at #177 R. Barao de Torre
Not too far away are:
Hostel Ipanema Beach
Ipanema isn't really such a huge neighborhood that walking from one end to the other would take more than maybe 20 minutes.
Google addresses and use the map(s), with streets labeled, on the www.ipanema.com site to see how close things are.
