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 to 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.

O atendimento foi bom, mas a limpeza deixa a desejar. Espelho todo respingado e dentro do box tinha acumulo de areia.

Assolutamente Consigliato!
Ostello un po' datato ma gestito in maniera ottimale: è pulito, il personale è molto gentile, e inoltre, dato il periodo Covid, hanno avuto l'accortezza di organizzare le stanze in modo da fare avere agli ospiti meno contatti possibili: io e mio marito siamo stati 10 giorni da soli in una camerata da 6, cosa molto apprezzata per la sicurezza di tutti e per la rarità con cui accade!!! Cucina spaziosa e ben attrezzata, posizione ottima sia per la metro a pochi passi di distanza, sia per il bel quartiere e la possibilità di raggiungere i maggiori siti turistici tranquillamente a piedi. Super soddisfatti!

Hostel muito bom
Foram 4 dias muito agradáveis. Hostel muito bem localizado, ao lado do metrô. Café da manhã bom. Recomendo esse hostel.

Equipe muito acolhedora, os funcionários foram super atenciosos. O quarto compartilhado é bom, mas só tem dois ventiladores de teto o que faz com que o quarto se torne quase insuportável no calor. Daria a sugestão aos administradores do hostel em colocar ventiladores mais potentes nos quartos compartilhados.
