Affordable accomodation in Rio and ParatyHello everyone,
my boyfriend and I will be traveling to Brazil in October this year. Does anyone have any recommendation for a safe and centrally located accomodation in Rio and a nice accomodation in the historic center of Paraty? (not too expensive)
Thank you very much for your help!

2I second the recommendation for Backpacker's House. It's right next to the bus station, and the supermarket, and it's a short walk to the historic center/beach. The breakfast includes fresh fruit juices, a variety of fruits, coffee, bread, various spreads, and ham/cheese. The private double (R$50) faces onto the street and can be a bit noisy at night though, and the room/bathroom are a bit small.
Another nice place in Paraty is the Refron du Mar. It's located right on Praia do Pontal, which is one of the beaches in Paraty (about a 15 minute walk from the bus station). It's R$50 for a double; the room is spacious, and the ensuite bathroom is huge. My only complaint about the place was that the WiFi wasn't working very well.
In Rio, I stayed at the Che Lagarto Copacabana. The rooms/bathrooms were reasonably clean, although a bit cramped. It has a great location (3 blocks from the beach, 1 block from the metro), but it's definitely more of a party hostel, so I don't know if that's something you'd want
