Hi Luke,

I am also doing the carnival after a few months in south america, and I booked tickets for the actual parade via the following website:

I do not know where I am staying yet either so am also looking for some info...

Hi
we were in Rio the week before carnival, we stayed at a hostel which we booked through hostel bookers. Be warned that during carnival you have to book for the full period, even at hostels.

Im staying at the Bamboo Rio hostel in copacobana. It seemed to have a reasonable price for a nice looking hostel. It also included a ticket to the parade.
