Pousada Favelinha

Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro

The hostel is 1.3 km from Complex of Sports of Fluminense Football Club - Soccer Field, 1.5 km from General Consulate of Germany and 2.3 km from Botafogo Beach. Galeao International Airport is 14 km away. Imagine waking to the sound of birds, as the sun colors the sky and a gentle breeze blows. You may have heard booming music the night before, but knowing how joyful your neighbors must have been makes it worth it. I couldn’t have dreamed up a more ideal place to stay. Gabriel welcomed us at the gate. He is improving his English and continually helped us for the 12 days we spent there (getting a SIM card working in my phone, giving great tips for navigating Uber, and also being great company). My 9 year-old daughter loved the view, the breakfast, the cozy atmosphere and, most of all, playing with the two awesome boys who welcomed her like a sister. The neighbors are sweet and always say hello. Even coming home after dark, there was never a moment when we felt unsafe despite the fact that some Uber drivers are hesitant to drive to the place, so they cancel- (be patient, one will come, you might just wait a few more minutes!). The Lady of the House (Neia) works hard to keep it clean, and there is always a breeze blowing through open windows. The room always felt fresh and peaceful in the morning. Great for reading, meditation, or yoga practices. The shower was hot and had a large window. The room had a million dollar view Eastern view and the balcony and roof were my favorite spots to sit. Although it’s a a ride from the main tourist attractions, it’s worth coming home to a great feeling of solace. It’s convenient to take Uber, the bus, or the cute yellow trolley. You’ll never tire of the gorgeous murals that adorn the walk, continuing out into the entire Santa Teresa neighborhood. Be sure to grab dinner one night at Pizzeria do Hedi. This is a special place to stay, hope you enjoy.

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world. <br><br> Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
