Hi Guys,

Does anyone know of a good hostel to stay at during Rio carnival, I have seen that most accept you to stay for 6 to 7 nights. Also what is a good area to stay in Rio, Santa Teresa, Ipanema, Copa etc? Any advice or recommendation would be great! :0)

Hi Ros,

I would highly recommend

Its within 5 mins walking distance of Copacobana beach. It's relatively safe to walk around there and there's a metro station just in front of the hostel.

Its about US$20 a night, but they have a reward system for the number of nights you stay

eg: after 3 nights you get a free cocktail at the bar
after 7 nights you get a free meal

.....stuff like that.

It's a great hostel with really friendly staff, and they organise something most evenings.

Thank you very much for the suggestion, I will go and check out their website, it sounds like its in a good spot to me. :)

I am staying at the Mellow Yellow in just under 2 weeks time. I've only heard and read good things about it. I will try to report back on it.

But there is defo a rewards system in place which looks great and it's very central which can only be a good thing.
