Lonely Planet review
Along with a handful of other budget spots on this quiet lane, the Lighthouse has an easygoing vibe and clean, simple rooms that attract a good mix of backpackers. Accommodations consist of eight-bed dorm rooms and one private double (with a fold-out sofa to sleep three).
Our independent authors have visited The LightHouse and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Rio de Janeiro City.
