My place is close to the Rio Sheraton in Vidigal, Rio's model of a safe favela. The front wall of the dormitory is a massive sliding glass door that faces the ocean/jungle view, it's like living in a tree house overlooking the ocean. Each dorm bed is like a private train sleeping compartment with a window, fan, electrical outlet, and lockable storage. A communal kitchen! Don't miss the other Casa do Mar listings in the same house (5 private rooms, 3 with kitchens. Rio's best beaches 5 minutes!
