  Albergue in Brazil
by mangueirense
 
 

Budget Teavellers like backpackers might be interested in this: "Dormitórios"
which have several beds to a room, cost as little as US$5 per night, though standards are correspondingly basic (with shared bathroom facilities); a Pousada (small guesthouse) costs approximately US$10 per night. Rooms with bathrooms are called apartamentos, those without a bathroom are called quartos.
There is a nice brazilian webpage for backpackers finding accomodation,
"Albergues" can be found under:

Hotels and Pousadas can be found under:

The best guide-book to find acomodations a foreigner in Brazil could have (especially if he doesn't have reserved hotels in all the places in Brazil he will travel to) is the ‘Guia do Brasil Quatro Rodas’, which includes maps available from EMBRATUR and from any news stand in Brazil. This guide book is written in portuguese, but very easy to understand even for a non-portuguese speaker and cost around 35 brazilian Reais
(around 12 US Dollars). It includes also advices on where to eat out, what to do, best beaches, etc.
There are also some other Guide books specified for different cities like the "Guia Sampa" for Sao Paulo or the "Guia Praias" for the best beaches. Webpage of the Quatro Rodas Guides is:
