Image by Booking.com

A surprising find in Vidigal, the Mirante do Arvrão has beautifully set rooms, the best of which offer gorgeous views over the ocean. It's worth paying extra for a deluxe room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony. The hostel is built from sustainable materials and uses solar power to heat the showers.
