The hostel in the friendly neighborhood of Laranjeiras is a mellow oasis to return to after a day in Rio de Janeiro with sightseeing, surfing, cycling, samba dancing, eating, drinking and other general Rio adventures.

Based in central Laranjeiras at the footstep of one of the Rios main attraction Christ the Redeemer.

A few steps from our hostel we have Praça São Salvador, with charming designer markets and street food markets several times a week and nice bars with live music and football games in the evenings.

It's a hangout  where you mix up with local people and this makes its so much more authentic and fun than just a tourist spot.
