If you have never stayed at a hostel in Brazil, or anywhere else for that matter there are a few things you should know. Firstly, hostels cost a fraction of what a hotel room in the same city would cost. However, a lower price means you’ll have to be prepared to compromise on amenities, but not to the extend you would have a decade ago.
Hostels today are the probably on par with a 3 star hotel as far as comfort goes, and a roadside budget motel when it comes to amenities. That said, all hostels are now regulated by the same local authorities that license hotels, guest houses, etc., so they’re clean and provide an acceptable number of washing and toilet facilities. In fact, may hostels have upgraded far beyond the minimum licensing requirements and offer private bathrooms with baths or showers.
Most hostels still offer beds in gender segregated dorms. However, many now offer private rooms for couple and families, or smaller dorm rooms for groups travelling together.
