From Nights People


From the GIG Airport (International)
We offer a transfer service from the airport with the extra cost of R$80,00. If you are tired or with a lot of stuff, I recommend this option. Maximum 3 people.
From here you can take a cab, again watching out for fixed prices, which should cost roughly R$70.00.
A cheaper option is to catch the airport bus to the domestic airport (Santos Dummont). From there you can take a cab for about R$15 or the 238 bus, like we told up before (Check how to arrive from Santos Dumont).

From the Bus Station (Novo Rio)
Anytime you arrive, the cheaper option is to leave the bus station, turn right, cross the street to the other bus terminal (Normal buses), take the bus Trocanl 2, that will drive you directly to Lapa. You have to leave in front of the club Lapa 40, and then keep walking in the same directions of the cars, and turn right next street (After the traffic light). We have NO SIGN, just look for number 10 above the door.
If you take a taxi, do not accept more than 30 reais! Please! Walk outside, turn left, there is a taxi stop with fixed price. Tell them you are comming to Lapa, it should be about 30 reais. About adress, say Avenida Gomes Freire, corner with Rua do Riachuelo ('Avenida Gomes Freire esquina com Rua do Riachuelo' is the portuguese translation. When they drop you there, take the street that goes up the hill and we are 4 building on the right. NO SIGN, just look for number 10 above the door.

However, if you come late at night, we advice you to take a taix. The neighborhood around the bus station is not safe. To do it, neither you walk to the boarding area, what means you have to the top floor, cross it and come down at the other side, neither you leave the bus station and walk to the left where the taxis park. Tell you are comming to Lapa, Avenida Gomes Freire, corner with Rua do Riachuelo. The street from the hostel is not very well known and this is a good reference fr the driver.

From the Santos Dumont Airport (Domestic)
During the day you can take a bus. Just walk to Avenida General Justo, cross the street through the bridge and take the 238 bus (AGUA SANTA). You have to leave in the first station after the big Lapa Arches (Impossible not to see). Then you will be at Avenida Mem de Sa. When you leave the bus, keep going in the direction of the cars and turn the first left at Avenida Gomes Freire. It is already the street of the hostel. Walk one block and the street will change name to Francisco Muratori, then we are in the 4th building on the right (LOOK FOR NUMBER 10 ABOVE THE DOOR). You can also take a Taxi. Again, if you dont want to accept a fixed price, you can walk to a street close by and catch a cab off the street. If you have difficulties, dont refrain from calling the hostel and we will try to help. The cab should cost you around R$15 - 20. But better to take a taxi in the airport. It will cost 17 BRL fixed price to Lapa. In the area around the airport there is some big streets where is not so easy to find a cab.
During the day you can also walk. Just walk towards the arches in Lapa and follow the left street (Rua Riachuelo) after the arches. Rua Muratori is the second street on the left.

PS: When you arrive look for number 10 above the door, we don't have any external advertising..

Located near

Books Hostel is located right in between Lapa and Santa Teresa. We are near the hustle bustle of Lapa and the calmness of Santa Teresa. Lapa is known as the cradle of bohemian, also famous for its architecture, beginning with its classical arches �� built to act as conduit in the times of colonial Brazil and now serve as a signal to the cable cars that climb the hill of Santa Teresa. It is also an absolute reference point for night lovers! And never forget CACHA�A BAR is just next corner!
