I stayed at Vidigal House for 3 weeks while I was doing a volunteer programme. Now honestly I was a bit apprehensive about staying in the favela's but I genuinely have never felt safer. Vidigal is a great place to stay and has just a great feel to it you really get the best experience of Rio staying here. Had the absolute time of my life staying here!
The hostel is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Bruno, Fernanda and Victoria go above and beyond to make your stay here brilliant and it is like a home when you are there! They do all the extra bits to make your trip even better, playing football on the beach at night, playing tennis and the BBQ on the balcony is just brilliant! They really do do everything they can to make the most of your trip!!
Things you must do when your out here is go to the maracana for a football match and it must be the Flamengos! (Bruno will help you get tickets) and sugar loaf mountain is incredible.
I have definitely made friends for life with staying here and a massive thank you to Bruno, Fernanda and Victoria for everything they done in my 3 weeks, for making me feel right at home and for all there hospitality.
A must stay if you are visiting Rio de Janeiro, couldn't fault anything about it! :)
