Hostel Galicia, located in the heart of Rio de Janeiro is ideal for your stay in our city.

We are just a few minutes from the bohemian neighborhood of Lapa, where the Arcos da Lapa, various botecos, concert halls and nightclubs are located.

But anyone who thinks that there is only life in Lapa at night, because every first Saturday of the month happens in Rua do Lavradio the already traditional Fair of the Old River, A must see. Continuing in this traditional neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, it is essential to visit the Santa Teresa Convent Staircase, known as the Selaron Staircase (the work of the painter and ceramist Jorge Selaron - 1947/2013) connecting Joaquim Silva Street in Lapa with Ladeira de Santa Teresa located in the neighborhood of Santa Teresa.

Already in the Carnival, do not doubt, everything happens near here. Besides being close to Lapa, we are also less than 10 minutes walking from the Sambódromo !!! Here, the most charming samba schools of Rio de Janeiro have been parading since 1984.

What about the Center? The Center does not just live on business. Worth mentioning is the Polo Saara for those who enjoy shopping, located 5 minutes from our hostel, the Largo da Carioca with the Santo Antônio Convent, the Imperial Palace, the Municipal Theater, the Royal Portuguese Reading Office, the National Library, Centro Cultural do Banco do Brasil and much more. Also worthy of note are the Metropolitan Cathedral of São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro and the very renovated Plaza Mauá, where the Museum of Tomorrow is located.

No, we do not forget the Christ the Redeemer and the Sugar Loaf which undoubtedly together with the Mirador Dona Marta are the best views of Rio de Janeiro.

For those who enjoy the beach, nothing better than Copacabana and its glamor !!! 

Without forgetting Ipanema, Leblon and the small, but not less beautiful, Red Beach in the neighborhood of Urca.

Hostel Galicia has great access to the South Zone with a bus stop less than 5 minutes walk and close to the subway (Central Station).

And for football lovers, the Maracana is near here


Do not doubt, Hostel Galicia is the best option!
