This Hostel is the right place for YOU! Beautiful and safe, in a quiet neighbourhood 10 MIN AWAY FROM COPACABANA BEACH AND THE SUGAR LOAF.
WE LOVE OUR GUESTS!!!
HERE YOU ARE NOT JUST A CUSTOMER, YOU BECOME A FRIEND!
We are a group of young people organizing the place. There´s always the best atmoshphere: fun and peace of mind in balance. Surf, capoeira, good music and alternative tourism (like trakking, climbing or hang gliding over touristic spots) are our favorites!
Vila Carioca Hostel is a newly remodeled 1938 mansion in a cozy villa with private security guards, 1 block from subway. We are located in Botafogo neighbourhood, a lively residential area, with bars, restaurants, museums and two shopping malls. Botafogo is centrally located to the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, downtown Rio, Corocovado (Cristo Redentor) and the Sugar Loaf.
At Vila Carioca Hostel you can make new friends among visitors and locals who are always dropping by. Here you wont feel like a tourist or like a hundred-dollar bill!
We have a family staff that cares about our guests having a great time in the city, taking care of all their needs, even when they leave town. We always make sure our customers
get fair trades for their money, not being ripped off by con men, cab drivers etc.
Our breakfast is a delicious self service buffet with coffee, tea, milk, bread, fruits, jam and cheese.
Come here and choose for the best!
