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 from 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.

ótima localização
Pros do Hostel: funcionários prestativos e sempre com tratamento nota 10. Localização excelente (próxima de estação de metrô, Arpoador, praias de Copacabana e Ipanema). Estrutura física legal. Contras: propaganda de hidro no terraço, mas a hidro está desativada (sem previsão de funcionamento). Um grande público de Israel (nada contra, mas se fechavam, não interagindo com demais hóspedes, o que fazia com que não tivesse aquele clima de integração que geralmente há em hostel

Mi paso por Social Hostel
En lo personal considero que es un buen hostal, esta super bien ubicado, tenés al lado la playa de IPANEMA y el de COPACABANA. Mi cuarto era privado y estaba super cómodo y limpio. Contrate un servicio de desayuno y estaba a precio accesible y muy rico. La muchacha de recepción fue amable conmigo.
