Property description

Founded in 2010, Books is where you write your own story in the greatest city on Earth, Rio. Our house is famed for its welcoming atmosphere and true family vibe, essential ingredients in making you feel relaxed, at home and free to be who you are. We would love to welcome you into our home for as long as you want (see our discount policy below 😉), whether you are travelling solo or in a group. Join us for cheap caipirinhas, great hikes, fantastic breakfasts, delicious dinners, quizzes and all-round fun times!

Our home is located between Lapa and Santa Teresa. Lapa being the heart of the action with plenty of bars and places to drink (including our beloved cachaça bar) with Santa Teresa boasting fantastic views, bohemian bars and beautiful restaurants. Staff are always on hand (because we all live here) to help you with directions to all the places you want to visit in Rio such as Christ, Sugar Loaf, Dois Irmaos or dare you climb Pedra da Gavea with us (There is a legend of 6 crazy people carrying the beer pong table to the top) or if you simply want to chill at the beach, Flamengo is a short walk, Leme 15 mins by Uber with your pals, Copacabana and Ipanema just 20 mins by Uber and about R$5 each if you make enough friends….oh…and did we mention that the amazing and world famous Escadaria Selaron are a 5 minute walk from us? Well, now we did!

Above all else Books is more than a hostel, it`s an experience and for some, a life changing one, it`s a lifestyle…don’t believe us? Book and find out for yourself. Choose life, choose freedom, choose love, choose peace, choose being drunk and exploring the best place in the world (besides Books itself)…choose Books! Check some of our pictures to feast your eyes on a bunch of people having the time of their lives!
