This is my second time in Rio and I wanted to experience a different area (I stayed in Ipanema the first time). Definitively Botafogo was a very good choice, not too crowded, not too expensive, near Lapa and the beaches. The hostel is near the metro so transportation was easy. At least at the time I was there the atmosphere was very relaxed, staff was willing to help all the time. I spend the mornings at the beach and then had some beers at the rooftop bar, perfect.

Todas las personas que trabajan en el Tupiniquim son muy buena onda. Cuando uno viene para Rio de Janeiro siempre hay un cierto miedo por el tema de la seguridad pero de verdad no tiene nada que ver con esa película famosa, Ciudad de Dios. De hecho ese tipo de favelas existen pero quedan muy lejos de Botafogo (que es donde está el hostel), de las playas y de todos los lugares turísticos. No me parece que sea tan diferente comparando con Buenos Aires por ejemplo. Si vuelvo a Rio me quedaré aqui.

I've been traveling non stop for the last 6 months and Rio was my last city so I needed a vibrant and unique hostel for my last couple of days. I am very interested in samba and capoeira so the recommendations from the staff were very welcomed. I wanted a female dorm because of some bad experiences I had and this was just what I needed. They need to improve a little bit on the recycling aspect, particularly inside the dorms.
