We have the greatest views and the quietest environment you can imagine. The guesthouse is located on a small mountain in the heart of Rio de Janeiro between the district of Laranjeiras and Santa Teresa. It is situated inside a small 'Favela', one of the many 'poor' districts that Rio has, however, it is not 'poor' in cultural terms.

This is the first project of its kind and the only possibility in all of Brazil to experience the tranquil life in a favela. All of the 3000 inhabitants of the favela will greet you in a very friendly way, and you will find lots of friends among other backpackers as well as among the people who live near our guesthouse.

We have four double rooms and two dorm rooms. All rooms have a balcony with beautiful views and with a hammock on each balcony. They also all have private bathrooms, and a big tropical breakfast is included in the price. We have a large living room and a huge rooftop terrace. Bananas, jack fruit, passion fruit and more grow in our garden. As there is no car traffic anywhere nearby, the only sounds you will hear is from the humming birds or the occasional rooster in the morning. We have internet for guests in the lobby and free wireless access in all rooms.

Still, you are only a five minute walk from either the metro station at 'Largo do Machado' which will take you to the Copacabana beach in only another 7 minutes, or from the 'bondinho', the old little cable car which runs through the beautiful artist's district in Santa Teresa and right down to the centre of Rio and the nightlife district 'Lapa'.

Since there are no roads in front of our hostel, the only thing you will have to put up with is walking up or down a small hill to reach us. The favela is secured by police and by the local inhabitants. It has been absolutely quiet for the past 10 years, and many special programs guarantee it to stay this way.
