As traveler's scramble to find accomodations for the 2014 World Cup which is being hosted in Brazil, prices are quickly skyrocketing. With 600,000 international guests and 3 million Brazilian's expected to attend this years games, supply and demand has quickly come into play. Prices of hotels, pousadas and hostels have risen. Some hostels where guests can expect to sleep six to a room are quoting prices in the $450 per night range. With a shortage of rooms available, beds in Rio's favelas are being offered at $11 per night.
