We were a little apprehensive when the taxi left us at the bottom of the morro. The walk there was totally worth it though. The view is something you’ll not get anywhere else in rio. The atmosphere is amazing, full of backpackers, and the owner...More

This place was incredible, with a unique view. We were staying nearby and a bit wary of going into the favela at night, but Babilonia has a reputation for being quite safe. The locals were friendly and helpful, one even walking us the rest of...More

I believe this was the best place we stayed in in our entire time travelling around South America. It was a privilege to experience staying in a favela with the hosts Bibi and Pol(an extremely intelligent, friendly, interesting, knowledgeable and all round lovely couple) who...More

We went here following a recommendation of Lonely Planet. Reasonably easy to find, locals are helpful. Triologia Latina was very tasty.

Our bar and restaurant, ran by Belgian-Colombian partners, offers good quality slow-food and service. Located at a touristic viewpoint in the peaceful favela of Babilonia, it offers a unique view over the city and here you will experience a different gentle face of Brazil. A perfect place relax after a busy day in the noisy agitated metropolis. Local community laws prohibit theft, assaults and harassment of women making it an exceptional safe place.
