I picked this accomodation because of its placement, right between Ipanema and Copacabana beaches (it is like 10mins walk to either) and when I told people we will stay in a favela the comments weren't great. After the stay I must say I couldn't have chosen better. The actual pousada is very clean, the ladies working there friendly and able to help and walking around safer than most other places. The off licence (favela one) was open until early morning and the locals were frindly, smiling back and acknowledging us. The rooms have toilet and shower en suite and the breakfast takes place upstairs on the terrace with the most amazing view...all together we loved it, thank you very much!!
