Very friendly received in a nice and clean house. The favela was very friendly too and it was very easy to go to tourist attractions from this place. If we go back to Rio, we will stay again in Vidigal Guest House

The Vidigal House is situated in the favela Vidigal, which is right next to Leblon in the Zona Sul. It's a family-run Hostel with simple, but brandnew amenities. It's squeaky clean (cleaned everyday) and has a breathtaking view to the Ipanema beach with the most wonderful sunrise in Rio (except MAYBE the Copacabana...). I stayed almost one month as a...
