We are centered in the middle of 7 different Surfing beaches, making it easy access by foot, bike and car. We are located opposite to Macumba Beach in Recreio dos Bandeirantes, on the outer skirts of the Rio City, 30min down the coast from Ipanema. Easy to access by bus, taxi, or we can arrange a pick up for you.

The hostel was put together and is run by a young couple, a New Zealander and Brazilian. Both being well travelled surfers, they have put this interesting hostel together for you to fall in love with. 'Our hostel is your home while you stay with us in Rio and enjoy the feeling of living in Brazil, we live in this area for a reason that you should experience'.

This area is ranked the best and most consistent surf beaches in the Rio City. The secluded beaches Prainha and Grumari have amazing jungle mountain backdrop with no development, and on a hot weekend day, are the favorite hangout beaches for surfers, famous actors, and Brazilian hot bodies. Grumari is even the spot where the beach scene from the movie City of God was filmed. These are the safest, cleanest and most relaxed beaches of the Rio City. Stay with us, the only hostel in the untouched area and be able to experience an island style feeling close to the city.

The rooms are spacious, all with ceiling fans, screened windows. Your bed will be made for you on your arrival with our sheets provided. We offer double, twin, and shared dorm rooms.
