need some advice on hostels in rio. does anyone know colonias resedancia in ipanema, I found it here in the destination section seems decent. anyone can suggest other place (not so expensive though)somewhere close to the beach. I'll appericiate any help
its the place.. i head. im chekkin in dec 8th
The Easy Hostel in Botofogo is nice and fairly inexpensive.
I stayed in Ipanema at a hotel called the Hotel San Marco. I was staying in a double room costing aobut $40US with breakfast. It was 2 blocks from Ipanema beach and a 10-15 min easy walk to Post 9 on Ipanema.
The other hostel that my friends have stayed at is the Rio Hostel in Santa Teresa although it's not close to the beach...but is close to Lapa where all the cool nightlife is...
I'm french and I live en Rio. I have a nice apartment but I'm going back to france for the holidays. So, If u are interested in renting my appart. send me an email.
Hey, I am in Rio now and staying at the Mellow Yellow Hostel in Copacabana. I stayed in the Botafogo easy hostel for the first 2 nights and it was really nice there. They pick up from the airport for $50 brazilian but a cab is just $35 but its easy to just get picked up. The hostel is small but friendly people there. I recommend the Mellow Yellow one though.... Its only been open 5 days and they are doing a promotion at the moment too. Its really big, lots of space, friendly staff and free internet and great breakfast! it works out cheaper here. hope that helps you! Meg
Hi fellow Rio visitors
I'm coming to Rio for Carnaval and am looking for accommodation (yes, too late I know!). I was checking out your recommendations (eg Botafogo Easy Hostel and Mellow Yellow etc), and can't get availability at any of them now!! So was wondering whether anyone had stayed at any of the following:
- El Misti Hostel, Botafogo
- Vila Carioca, Botafogo
- Sun Rio, Botafogo
- Casa Aureu, Santa Tereza
... or any other reasonable, safe and nice hotels/hostels that you would recommend that I could check out.
If you are still looking for accommodation for Carnivale, you might want to try Crab Hostel, http://www.crabhostel.com.br.
They still had some private rooms available (fortnight ago) at quite reasonable prices including ticket sambodromo tickets!
i was late booking aswel. Managed to get a bed at the crab hostel. All included - tickets etc. I was just worried that it might be no goodas why does it still have space etc strange name. Have you been there?? well if you end up booking that one i will see you there. good luck daisy.
