Chill Hostel Rio
Nestled in a hillside favela overlooking the beachside district of Copacabana, the Chill Hostel Rio offers budget travelers safe lodging in a laid-back atmosphere. Each guest room affords breathtaking ocean views and guests can chill on the ample terrace, in the hammock or in the tropical garden. Or they can watch a DVD in the living room, whip up a meal in the fully-equipped kitchen, connect to Wi-Fi anywhere they please, play pool or make use of the myriad books and games available to them. The house itself was designed by the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer and the friendly owners offer unique ways to experience Rio de Janeiro, like their off-the-beaten-track "Barcrawl" tour.
The hostel is situated in the safe hillside favela of Babilonia, one-third of a mile uphill from Rio's beachside Copacabana district. The beach is within easy reach and there are supermarkets, restaurants and laundromats within walking distance.
