I opted for the private room and the room was a decent size as was the bathroom. The views were great especially from the roof terrace
The location is in a ‘pacified’ favela. The owner assures of its safety but I was stopped and searched at gunpoint one night when walking back in and they looked through my phone. I was given no advice about ‘if walking through do not have your phone out’ and only found this factor out after googling my experience to see if anyone else had experienced it. Google maps can’t be trusted to take you as one it involves looking at your phone and secondly it takes you through alleys and strips that are progressively worse than the main road route. I ended up having the buy marijuana after feeling uncomfortably cornered making one wrong turn. I had approached from a side I didn’t usually and followed the stairs hoping to see a familiar path when I was suddenly in sketchy territory. Overall it offered good value but I would be unlikely to stay there again or would certainly avail of the taxi bike service. It’s surpassing how used to seeing favela inhabitants with M16’s on your walk up to the hostel at night - and once outside it’s easy to assess that probably isn’t the best environment for a tourist.
Nice Staff and super clean room
Super noisy environment, bad isolated window... we could barely sleep and the fridge wasn’t working... we had to give away our bought food!
Many different local people said to us it is not safe to stay in favela so we deside to skip this hostel.
The hostel is in a favala which isnt for Everyone, but we loved the experience everyone was friendly the food in the local restaurants were great would definitely stay there again!
Was raining when we were there so we were kinda trapped inside the room which was quite small but wouldn’t have been an issue if we were out n about all day.
Friendly host, great view!
Be warned this hostel is in a favela. Rather loud at night.
