Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Very Good 8.0
Hostel staff are great and really helpful. The room itself was ok, a little run down but bed was comfortable. We had a private room. It’s at the start of the Favela and you need to be careful when entering and exiting but overall we enjoyed our stay. Bar in hostel is good. They can sort out good tours for you as well. Short walk to Copacabana Beach.
