Plain and Simple Hostel in Rio de Janeiro

Plain and Simple 

Category: Hostel

Address: Rua do Livramento 90 - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


About the property

The Plain & Simple hostel is located in a charming house built around 1904… Like the gentrification project of the Marvelous Port it’s still in a bit of a rough state. But since we’re opening specially for these events, everything is brand new. Freshly painted rooms, new beds, sheets and towels.



The private rooms are simple, but clean and safe. The dorms rooms (and all the rooms with at least 3 beds) have bunk beds, You’ll find all the necessities like Wi-Fi, a couple of showers and strong fans to put a breeze in the 4-½ meter high (!) rooms. But, as the name states, the place is Plain & Simple.


Common areas, services and activities

Beside a garden, this hostel has no frills (pool table, breakfast, bar, air con), just clean nice room, and the magic atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro waiting for you outside.



Our port area is full of history and music: Two UNESCO-recognized sites: the recently unearthed Valongo dock where a good part of the millions of slaves that were shipped to Brazil arrived, and a slave cemetery discovered underneath a private house. Samba was born here, so there is many a neighborhood bar with beer drinking folks and Brazilian music, clubs, open air forró and samba performances that fill the streets during Carnival.


Why you should stay here

If you are looking for a proper, bourgeois place to stay, this isn’t for you. But if you’re looking for a charming, funky and centrally located hostel, this one is great. Walking distance to Cidade do Samba, Pedra do Sal, Trapiche da Gamboa, the MAR Museum and the Port, 10 minutes by bicycle to the Center, Lapa, the national airport, the main bus terminal and the main train station. Close to the Sambadrome and the Maracana stadium.
