I loved favela location by the hills. It has awesome views. I guess the price was good too. You really can't expect a 3 to 5 star when you paid just $R135. The views are awesome especially at night
I wouldn't recommend this because they somehow didn't debit their money from my credit as is the norm with everyone of my bookings. Instead they expected me to pay them in cash just an hour before my flight. The old man who was being so not helpful eventually woke someone who rebooted their speed point and that point I had removed every cent I had in my pocket , including $R50*2 .at this stage the old man was holding my $R50*2 in his hand. Since I was in a hurry n it had just started training I forgot to tell him to give my money back since I had paid with a card and he didn't give it back. I only realized that when I got in to a taxi and wanted to pay in cash. Those people didn't even want to an umbrella, apologize for the inconvenience or wish me a goodbye as I left...
There's a good and very cheap Brazilian Jiujitsu dojo in the hostel. It's clean. The owner is nice and speaks perfect English. The view from the terrace is pretty good, too.
The breakfast is overpriced.
Friendly staff, good bjj session ,nice area ,defo I will come back here
Excellent staff. Very polite! Very thoughful! Good view to favela and surroundings.
Breakfast was only Cofe with milk + one sandwitch.
This hostel was the best I've stayed in, in Rio, a place to call home. The staff and special compliments to the Manager, Ray who is very hands on, always helpful and loves people. The Hostel is also involved in good causes in the local community, has a fantastic Brazilian Jiu-jitsu gym with a lovely chill out rooftop space and breathtaking views. Also LOVED meeting Bobby, who I will miss dearly. Thanks Walk on the Favella Hostel for being the #best and making my stay so memorable. I WILL BE BACK #definitely
Everything was perfect, there was absolutely nothing to dislike. Many reviews on here are picky and incorrect, especially re Bobzi who plays a crucial role :( You have to experience this place for yourself and enjoy a once in a lifetime experience like no other, that's why we travel! Remember, when you point a finger, 3 point back at ya
