Come to our town Recreio known as the surfers Sanctuary!

Enjoy Beautiful Nature Reserve Beachs- surf competitions hiking,surfing,BBQs and feel the real Brazil. 1min walk to beach of Macumba- 45min bus ride from Ipanema.

Our hostel is a spacious Surf styled house only 100m from the beach and its the perfect spot to relax in a hammock after a day of Surfing and other adventures.

We are centered in the middle of 7 different Surfing beaches, making it easy access by foot, bike and car. We are located opposite to Macumba Beach in Recreio dos Bandeirantes, on the outer skirts of the Rio City, 30min down the coast from Ipanema. Easy to access by bus, taxi, or we can arrange a pick up for you.

The hostel was put together and is run by a young couple, a New Zealander and Brazilian. Both being well travelled surfers, they have put this interesting hostel together for you to fall in love with. 'Our hostel is your home while you stay with us in Rio and enjoy the feeling of living in Brazil, we live in this area for a reason that you should experience'.

This area is ranked the best and most consistent surf beaches in the Rio City. The secluded beaches Prainha and Grumari have amazing jungle mountain backdrop with no development, and on a hot weekend day, are the favorite hangout beaches for surfers, famous actors, and Brazilian hot bodies. Grumari is even the spot where the beach scene from the movie City of God was filmed. These are the safest, cleanest and most relaxed beaches of the Rio City. Stay with us, the only hostel in the untouched area and be able to experience an island style feeling close to the city.

The rooms are spacious, all with ceiling fans, screened windows. Your bed will be made for you on your arrival with our sheets provided. We offer double, twin, and shared dorm rooms.

Includes a mini buffet breakfast daily of fruits, cakes, and breads with ham, cheese and jams. Also a selection of juices, tea and fresh Brazilian coffee. Plus, to top it all off, a surf video playing in the background to amp you up for the day.

We have no curfews and give every customer their own key to the gate, so you can come and go as you please.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great property-- much potential. If they put just a little effort and money into making the hostel nicer and CLEANER, it would be a huge improvement. It needs painting, the was NO furniture in the room, not one chair or desk-- just a bed. The sheets smelled musty, they need to invest in new towels.

The hosts were pleasant and accommodating, extending themselves to us.


Awesome location away from the big city which allows you to experience the real Brazil. You are made to feel as though it is your house. I went there with my partner, who doesnt surf and she loved it as much as me. If you want to relax and enjoy a cheaper, better option to Rio I would recommend you spend some time with Mauro and his family. You wont regret it. In a six week trek around Sth America, staying here was a highlight.
