I will be in Rio for 2 nights, can anyone suggest a good hostel, even one that collects from airport?

And for anyone who has been in Rio and South Brazil in July - any tips on what weather will be like, how cold etc?

Thanks
Sarah

Rio is always hot! Just take a sweater for night time. Best thing to do is take a cab at the airport to copacabana or Ipanema e pick a hotel you like. It costs close to nothing compared to booking it online. There are hundreds of cheap bed and breakfast, just walk a few blocks away from the beach.

Hey All.

The Ipanema Beach House is pretty rad.

www.ipanemaneachhouse.com

Its like $20 USD a night and they have a pretty darn good hostel breakfast w bread, ham, fruit, jam,etc.

They have good connections w travel agencies and very friendly. THe bartender Marco is really cool and the girls that work the front desk are beautiful and very resourceful and helpful.

Check it out.
