Favela Experience and the NGO “SER Alzira de Aleluia” partnered up to create a high social impact accommodation in one of Rio’s most beautiful and safe favelas. Both the NGO and the hostel are located in the same property, so the guests can actually meet the locals, participate in the social programs as volunteers, and experience the real life in Rio, while staying at one of our recently renovated rooms planned specifically to offer a comfortable stay. After Airbnb's fees, a significant part of your payment goes directly to the NGO, so it can continue to provide important social services to favela youth and their families. As such, you're helping to make the nonprofit financially sustainable, so it doesn't have to depend on small donations to survive. You'll have a wonderful stay and contribute to the development of the community!


Immerse yourself in the real Rio de Janeiro by staying in the favela of Vidigal, a safe urban community vibrant with music, food, art, and fun. Staying in a private bedroom with 3 beds in a small, international hostel, you'll marvel at amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and Vidigal. You'll have fast wi-fi, a shared bathroom, and a kitchen shared with a few international guests. Enjoy many cultural and adventure activities in or near Vidigal, including hang gliding, surfing, rock climbing, trekking, favela walking tours, samba, martial arts, and "funk carioca" parties. (We can even get you discounts--just ask!) Moreover, located in the heart of Rio's exclusive South Zone, you'll be a short walk, van, bus, or taxi ride away from the beaches of Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon and the alternative scene of Botafogo.


Vidigal's new 24/7 police protect the community as part of a government program in advance of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics. In reality, tourists are safer in Vidigal than in some of Rio's most "touristy" areas. Unlike other parts of the city, you'll feel a real sense of community in the favelas, where everyone looks out for their neighbors.

You can maximize your safety if you:
• Don't take photos of people without permission
• Never use or buy illegal drugs
• Consume alcohol in moderation
• Listen to your hosts about safety


Your private bedroom is on the fifth floor of the building. The bedroom was recently renovated and features a bunk bed with 2 individual-sized beds, a single bed, as well as a shared bathroom with hot water from the electric shower. Furthermore, there's fast wi-fi.

Please inquire about pricing as we have many different rooms and offer discounts for longer stays and larger groups.


The hostel is located on a quiet, cobble-stone street in the Rua Três section of Vidigal, about a 15-minute walk (or 3-minute mototaxi ride) uphill from the entrance to the community and a 20-minute walk to Vidigal's quiet beach. The guesthouse has nine total rooms on the third, fourth and fifth floors of a building owned by the NGO SER Alzira de Aleluia, which offers education, sports, and arts activities for local youth. (You're welcome to volunteer with the kids or simply participate in the activities) There's a tranquil yet social atmosphere among the other guests who enjoy hanging out on the large outdoor deck with a shared kitchen. On the top there’s an open terrace with the most amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean, the beaches and urban areas of Leblon, Ipanema and Arpoador, the Cagarras Islands, and the hill that flows from the rock walls, to the forest, to the favela, and down to the coast line. Enjoying a beer up there with that view and the wind on your face is just priceless. If you wait for sunrise, it’s even better.

We have availability and very affordable prices for:
• Carnival (February 2016)
• New Year's (Reveillon)
• Rock in Rio (Sep 2015)
• Olympics Rio 2016

My stay at the favela with Adam surpassed any hopes I may have had. It was an exceptional experience and I can't wait to go back and bring a group. adam and the other members of his team were always available to help in every way and provided tons of useful information about Rio and the neighborhood. I was exposed to so many wonderful people and opportunities thanks to Adam's generosity and openness. It's an amazing place, the view, the neighborhood, the vibe - all awesome!
