They'd better hurry 'cause carnival is right around the corner!! You could try checking out the search engine here on our boards and see what hostel you find. Also another site (which I think is the same that powers our search engine) is hostelworld.com.

Good luck!

yeah it is waaaaaay too late to try and book a place to stay in Rio right now. I was told that hotels sell out by november for carnival.

Maybe try couchsurfing.com or a site similar to that...

you could always try couchsurfing.com. or hospitalityclub.org. i can't vouch for either as i've never tried them, but i really like couchsurfing's setup and stuff, found alot of interesting people and places.
