Rio Hostel Warning


Just a quick warning for you guys out there heading to Rio De Janeiro, specifically Ipanema.... There is a bunch of hostels in a Vila there that are fantastic, great people and a friendly atmophere....

The problem is one crazy lady that has decided to break into this harmonic atmosphere with her lying and deceitful ways... The hostels there have a great way of helping each other when it is needed but the owner of "The Girl from Ipanema" (Sofia) has decided to "bad mouth" all the other hostels. I can say for the record that they (the other hostels) do not steal from their guests, they do not have dirty smelly places, they do have fun and a great time. I know this because I stayed in one of them for a month and spent alot of time in this fantastic Vila...

If you do decide to go to Ipanema, be warned about "The Girl from Ipanema", not all that she says is true.... the village is a great place to hang out, get there, have a look around and make your own informed decision.....

Always Offshore....
