Property Information:

The Santa Semente Guesthouse is safe, clean, exciting, and affordable. We're located near the great nightlife of Lapa and the heights of the Christ the Redeemer statue. You'll find us in the beautiful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa in Rio de Janeiro. We specialize in foreigners who come to Rio on culural exchanges or to do volunteer work, but we host people who come to Rio just to have a good, relaxing time as well. We are located next to the pacified community of Coroa. Whether you want to party in Lapa, relax in Santa Teresa, or go to the beaches of Copacobana, our hostel is the one for you.

Please note:

Breakfast will be served from 8 - 10 AM.

Dinner will be served from 7 - 9 PM. (Guests who are not volunteers can buy dinner at the price of R$15.00. You must tell us before noon if you are eating dinner or not in the hostel.)

    Fantastic new hostel. It has a great view of the Sambodrome that was wonderful during carnival to watch the fireworks. Both the owners went out their way to help all the guess. They even helped to find me a volunteer placement in Rio. Close to bars in Santa Teresa. Nice breakfast, spacious beds and i really liked the open plan kitchen and living space. Would highly recommend.
