Live like a local in Botafogo

We're located in Botafogo, a safe and bohemian neighboorhood in the south zone of Rio. Within walking distance you can reach Copacabana Beach, Sugar Loaf and Botafogo Beach, ideal for walking, biking and one of the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro. Besides that, great bars and restaurants are just around the corner. BotaHostel is in a calm and safe street in a cozy house. At Botahostel you can meet locals and experience our way of life.

The great differential of BotaHostel is to make the staff feel at home in a laid-back, clean and friendly atmosphere. Our staff is cheerful, fun and helpful. If you think you can fit our profile, contact us :) Cheers!

Botahostel has been the best decision I have made to do a volunteering in RJ. The good vibes are just provided by those 3 amazing human beings, Michelle Natalie and Zito!. Thank you so much for not just being the owners of the hostel but friends and family form me. I´m feeling like at home every day, thank you for the support, it´s a pleasure to be part of this Botahotel family, I’m just want to see them being one of the best hostels in RJ!. I´ll never forget this experience and I´m pretty sure I´ll be back to see them, Love you guys!. :*
