The first hostel of its kind, Favelinha welcomes you to the interesting world of the majority of the Cariocas. Keep in touch with the friendly people of the favelas and know their lives, what they think, and how they spend most of their time.
Housed in a beautiful tall edifice, this fabulous hostel is located in the most beautiful setting where wind, sea and sky become one. Set your eyes at the stunning views of the Guanbara Bay, the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the beautiful beaches of Flamengo and the equally astounding Botafogo while lounging lazily at the terrace of the lovely Favelinha. read more

There is a small bus (RIO TOTAL) departing directly in front of the church of the square during the entire day until 11 p.m. - it leaves approximately every 10 minutes. It takes only five minutes with this bus to reach the dead end street (Rua Pereira da Silva) which is the beginning of the favela. Just stay in the bus until it turns at the top of a little hill at the end of a dead end street. Get out right after it has turned and climb the hill to the pousada - you will find signs which will show you the exact direction, or ask any of the locals who will happily show you the way to the 'pousada'. It will take about 5 minutes to do the steep climb of about 75 meters.

I stayed here with a close friend and we like the place so much. It has nice vibe and everyone there was really friendly. The place was quite clean and the staff was super attentive. We will come here once again, definitely.
