So petropolis isn't the tourist centre that Rio is - in fact I think my boyfriend and I were about the only two English people in the whole place during our visit. However as a break from Rio and a chance to see the imperial past of the state it was a pleasant visit. Plus, at hostel petropolis we got a double room for 50 rl (about £27) a night which was a welcome break from the cramped hostel dorms of Rio! The bed was super comfortable with really soft covers that were a dream to sleep in; towels were provided and there was free wifi in the rooms. Everything was really clean and the cleaner seemed to be everpresent keeping the communal areas in check. There was a small kitchen that had everything we needed to cook each night, and the hostel was really quiet except for the traffic outside. I would recommend only staying for a night in Petropolis as you can easily see everything in a day;nonetheless it is a lovely escape from Rio and this hostel was perfect for our needs
