This Brazillan teenager has found himself the perfect secret hideout where he can take some time away from the outside world. 


Student Pedro Palhares, 17, discovered the secret hideout when he was swallowed up by his sofa while leaning back and fell through the opening.


He said: “I ended up inside and thought why not use this as a secret hideout.” 


Gradually, Pedro added some extra bits and pieces and made it his own space where he can feel calm and safe. 


“I use it when I want to have a quiet place while watching Netflix on my phone, and also after having a fight with my parents,” he said. 


“It could also be a safe place if some thief breaks into my home.”
