Installed in the largest cultural attraction region of the City of Rio de Janeiro, the Mauá Rio Hostel is located at the beginning of the Conceição Hill, at the famous Mauá Plaza, Downtown, recently revitalized.  The hostel is located at the Wonder Port/Porto Maravilha, directly inspired on the Barcelona Port, in Spain, and on Porto Madero, in Buenos Aires.


The hostel is surrounded by traditionally historic attractions of the city, such as the Pedra do Sal Samba, the Conceição Fortress, the Suspended Garden of Valongo, several art ateliers, besides the Conceição Hill itself, crib of the initial occupation of Rio de Janeiro back in the XVI Century.
