"Rio cheapest in an area full of music" Samba Villa Tip by gonzo747

Samba Villa, Rio de Janeiro: 2 reviews and 0 photos

I stayed in this place during my stay in Rio. It's situated in Lapa which is a pretty central position within Rio. i've payed 19 real for a dormbed per night which is very cheap for Rio. The place was clean, the beds ok. downstairs is a bar. Every evening you can order diner there for 7 real. They do vegetarian if you ask.
Lapa itself is great place to go out (samba central). The neighbourhood feels really dodgy but if you keep an eye on your things things will be allright.
