Rua Armando de Almeida Lima, 8 | Vidigal
Always open, according to them 😉
In a not-so-far-away past, it would be unimaginable to have hotels and cool hotspots inside a favela. But time has changed and Vidigal, the community very close to Ipanema, gained this hip hostel, with impressive architecture and modern décor. At the top of the hill, the rooms have glass walls with breathtaking views of Rio’s skyline and beaches. It features a dorm for 12 guests and 3 private suites. The place also hosts parties and rodas de samba (when samba musicians perform together) that attract a very trendy crowd. Just note that it will be necessary to take taxi or moto-taxi to go up or down the hill.
