Strategic location and a view of Rio de Janeiro beyond the clichés

Villa 25 hostel & suites is a short walk to Largo do Machado subway Station, three stations away from the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema and three stations  north towards downtown, where you can get to Lapa and the domestic airport (SDU). The hostel is located at the Gago Coutinho street, a true Oasis of tranquility and peacefullness in the middle of cosmopoliatm Zona Sul. Laranjeiras is a traditional   neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro’s south zone,  its history  is intertwined with the history of Rio. The region was once divided by small farms of upper middle class, which multiplied rapidly with the continous growth of the city, althought it has retained the local soul.

Take a stroll in  the streets where Princes Elizabeth walked to reach the palace of Guanabara and where Carlota Joaquina  chose to live upon her arrival to Brazil, it is a marvellous walk through quiet squares, tree-lined streets and palaces of rare architectural beauty. Also the neighborhood of Laranjeiras is an access point to the Christ the redeemer monument and Fluminense soccer club.

But the greatest asset of those staying at Villa 25 is, undoubtedly, the memory of sharing the good and simple life of Rio, where kindness   is worldwide recognized.

Villa 25 hostel & suites is only minutes away  from Largo do Machado subway station, taxi points, buses, banks, churches, shops, restaurants, bars, cinemas, supermarkets, pharmacies, parks, bike stations and other conveniences.
