Stayed here for 5 nights recently, me and a friend got a private room. It was $R1000 for the 5 nights (around £200). The stairs up to the hostel are a bit of a work out in the heat, but there's a cage for transporting...More

Enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The location is good - just out of the bustling centre but within 15 mins of bars/restaurants/shops in Lapa and a metro stop in Glória. The staff are nice, good wifi, good air con, breakfast/bar area is pretty average,...More

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
