I was making my way down from Rio de Janiero (Brazil) to Montevideo (Uruguay) and after stopping at Florianopolis to break up the journey, the next stop was Porto Alegre. My last stop until country 117 – Uruguay.


I had heard mixed reviews about Porto Alegre, with there not being so much to do, it being a business city etc so I wanted a hostel to be right by the bus station, so as soon as I got off my night bus from Florianopolis, I could stumble to the hostel.


The hostel with the best location in the whole city was the Rock’n’Hostel, slap bang in the middle the historic centre of PA, and about 500m from the bus station. Boom.


The Rock’n’hostel is an apartment hostel, where they convert a couple of apartments into an apartment, and the name of the place sets the tone perfectly. The wifi password is Pink Floyd, there are posters of Lenny Kravitz, Iron Maiden, the Beatles and the vibe is super chill.


There are just 2 rooms, one 8 bed dorm and one 6 bed dorm, Anthony (from booked the 6 bed and had it all to ourselves, I love it when that happens! The beds are really comfortable, not too close to together and the whole hostel is pretty spread out.


Free breakfast and extra fast wifi also tick some serious hostel boxes too. The owner, Rafael, and his awesome wife Beatrice, both speak good English and they are so helpful when it comes to planning your next leg. A huge plus when you’re traveling long term!


Anyways, I only stayed in Porto Alegre one night (2 days) and it was a perfect stay. I caught up with some work, got an awesome nights sleep (and they let me check in early and sleep at 6am after the night bus), had a fun walking tour of the city and then set off for Uruguay. A hugely successful pit stop, I’d certainly recommend it en route down/up Brazil’s coast. Happy travels!
