About Barraco #55

BARRACO #55 is a cultural incubator and hostel at the same time in Complexo do Alemão, one of the biggest favelas (low income area) of Rio de Janeiro.

It’s a house where travelling artists and culturally interested people can exchange culture and knowledge with locals in order to get to know the local reality and learn from one another. We organise, together with our guests, events, workshops and sociocultural projects in which anyone can participate.

Our rooms are simple, but comfortable, with shared bathrooms.

Attention: Note that Barraco #55 is located about 30-45 minutes from the city center and the beach.

SAFETY

The area, that used to be dominated by drugs gangs, is now pacified and occupied by the police since two years and safe to visit for foreigners. However, the image of the favela is still very negative, and people (especially taxi-drivers) often scare our visitors saying that it's very unsafe. This situation has changed a lot over the past years. Many people have stayed in Barraco #55 in the past years and we would not be operating here if it was so bad.
