    This hostel was the best I've stayed in, in Rio, a place to call home. The staff and special compliments to the Manager, Ray who is very hands on, always helpful and loves people. The Hostel is also involved in good causes in the local community, has a fantastic Brazilian Jiu-jitsu gym with a lovely chill out rooftop space and breathtaking views. Also LOVED meeting Bobby, who I will miss dearly. Thanks Walk on the Favella Hostel for being the #best and making my stay so memorable. I WILL BE BACK #definitely

    Everything was perfect, there was absolutely nothing to dislike. Many reviews on here are picky and incorrect, especially re Bobzi who plays a crucial role :( You have to experience this place for yourself and enjoy a once in a lifetime experience like no other, that's why we travel! Remember, when you point a finger, 3 point back at ya

    Authentic favela experience.

    Authentic favela experience. Mattresses are uncomfortable. Some sheets had blood stains. Floor smelt like cat urine. Breakfast was served by unfriendly staff who didn’t want to be there. Wifi doesn’t reach the dorms. We were put into already occupied beds, and got kicked out early the next morning and had to change beds. Bathrooms felt cramped. Dorms are cramped. Toilets don’t flush sometimes.

    Great and helpful staff. The hostel cat, Bobby, is really cool. The stairs to the hostel at first were difficult but now I walk them with ease. It's in a great neighbourhood with personality. Everything like the beach and supermarkets are close if you like walking for 5 minutes and being part of a vibrant community. I would stay here again, but I haven't left yet after extending my stay for 2 more weeks. The hostel also has a great terrace to chill on.
