My first trip to Rio and I feel so fortunate to have landed at Mambembe hostel. Excellent location in Santa Teresa, cool views of the city. The staff are welcoming and helpful, gave me advice on places to visit, cheap eats in the neighbourhood, lent me locker-locks and a power-converter.
I stayed there during Rio Honk! music festival and the hostel was a sponsor, promoting the different free shows and a couple of bands were staying there.
