Founded in 2010, Books Hostel is where your Rio Story begins. We are a hostel that believes a welcoming atmosphere and family vibes are a super important part of a hostel life. We would like to welcome you to our sociable and friendly home, perfect for solo travelers or groups.

Located between Lapa and Santa Teresa, here you will find all the things in Rio you were not looking for. Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf and Beaches are all just traveler’s homework in Rio. At Books you can experience what it is to be a true backpacker and have genuine fun. Colorful steps, themed nights (Mexican, Italian or Disco are a few examples), best friends for a night after dangerous caipirinhas, more hats than you can count and a crazy bunch of staff lead by a shirtless man wearing a captain hat.

But it doesn’t end there! Books was made to be your home away from home, a clean and safe place to go back to after endless days of exploring the marvelous city or a crazy night out discovering the Rio night life. As to build some trust in our relationship, we also provide the services below, working hard and caring lots about your wellbeing.

. Yummy Breakfast from 8h to 11h (Fruits, cereals and brown bread that can be toasted on a very modern super cool toasty machine).

. Hot and Cold Showers (And we know you want/need it).

. Bunk beds only (As a party hostel we keep our guests safe: no triple bunks in here)

. Laundry Service with 24h Delivery (We like to keep our guests smelling good)

. Free and Consistent Wi Fi and communal computers (For you to upload videos and pictures from the amazing trip you are having before losing your camera)

. Watch all sports events especially our beloved Premier league and UCL (As long as there is a game to be watched, we will be there)

. Communal Netflix (You have the right to be lazy when travelling for so long)

. Well equipped guest kitchen (To help you stay on your budget).

. Cheap drinks (Infamous happy hours who were responsible for several amazing nights followed by bad hangover moments here)

. Air Conditioned rooms (Face the high temperatures from Rio)

. Day and night activities (Sports at the beach, hikes in Rio, quiz night, beerpong tournament are a few examples)

. Beerpong facilities (You can also apply for some individual classes if you don’t trust your skills too much)

We are sure and very happy that you, looking for the perfect place to stay have just found it. Come and join us, knowing that we are very excited to welcome you and your mates into the famous and worldwide Books Family.
