In our hostel you could have a great Favela experience by joining our project and being a part of another family of the community.
The Hostel is located in the Favela known as Chapéu Mangueira and Babilonia, one of the first pacified favelas of the city. Years ago the Favela was controlled by street gangs, until its control was taken over by the police pacification unit project in 2009 which restored peace in the community and notably enhanced the tourism in the area.
Chapeu Mangueira and Babilonia are an example for social projects like this that came with success all around the world.
The view from the balcony and the terrace is just breathtaking, the ocean, Copacabana beach and the surrounding forest can be seen from here and exotic birds and little monkeys come to visit very often.

So get yourself inmerse into this favela experience and be surprised by the beautiful Brazil.
