Description - Hostel

Tupiniquim Hostel is located in an old-1938-colonial-portuguese-style big house on a very quiet street at the heart of Botafogo neighborhood, 10 min. away from the Sugar Loaf and Copacabana beach ... the famous Christ the Redeemer can be seen from some of our windows !!

But you see, the core of a hostel is not a beautiful and charming house (like ours), or plenty Super-Duper hot showers (which we have, 7 in fact) or any of those welcome features ... the core is the people ... in this case the interaction of us, your brazilian hosts, and you ... we are here because of you ... attention to detail and quality in every possible human aspect ... command us ...

- multi-language staff: Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Hebrew ... even a bit of German ... did I forgot any ??
