  • Description


    Our hostel has 12 rooms and can support until 66 guests at the same time. It opened only 3 years ago and is already very well rated on all websites.
    This is thanks to very nice installations of course but also thanks to our wonderful staff always concerned about guests enjoying as much as possible their time in Brazil.
    We would like to share all this nice "carioca' atmosphere with workawayers pretending to spend some time in Rio. Our hostel Aquarela do Leme is located in Leme, a very nice and safe neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. Then we ask our workawayers to share this same atmosphere with our guests.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Think about the best place to discover Rio de Janeiro and the cariocas!
    This is the perfect place to introduce to travellers the Brazilian culture, beaches and wildlife but still staying in contact with people from all over the world and with a lot of comfort.
    Staying just a few meters from the pacified and safe favela of Babilonia will allow travellers to discover the authentic carioca way of living. Only 10 minutes from Copacabana and near all interesting places in Rio.
    Leme is a small and safe neigborhood where all Rio is resumed: culture, party, wildlife, beach, trekkings etc...
    All this in the safest place of the city.
