I really enjoyed my time at Santa Tere Hostel. You get used to the walk up the hill. I came to appreciate the Santa Teresa barrio and hiking in the hills in the morning to see the sunrise. The dorm here is spacious, clean, and quiet, and the attached bathroom facilities are nice. The big breakfast is a highlight. Maria was especially helpful. Santa the hostel cat is a cutie. The only downside was the barking dogs next door early in the mornings.


Amazing place, staff are very friendly and helpful, pool is fantastic, rooms are clean and quiet, just maybe needs to open the AC more.. the location is good and safe, just a bit of a walk to the main street.. but I'd stay there again for sure


Amazing hostel with even better facilities. The pool is so nice and the common rooms are spacious, airy and homely. I easily could have spent all my time in the hostel. The location is a little misleading, it's not really in Sana Teresa, more like Gloria. And it's a bit of a walk to the main action. But I would definitely stay here again! Met lots of great people.


Best hostel in Rio. Great staff, amazing view, and it has a pool!


Awesome place if you don't mind staying up hill


We really enjoyed our stay at Santa Tere. The staff were very friendly, extremely helpful and even took us our for a night in Lapa for a few drinks during our stay. The hostel is great, we stayed in the 16 person dorm and had no issue even the hostels cat Santa is very friendly.

The staff here were insanely accomodating and fun to be around. The hostel itself is very organized and clean. During Carnival it was really nice to come back to the hostel have a relaxing place to get a way from the party rather than other places where the party was raging at the hostel. People at this hostel knew how to have a great time, but not rage hard at the hostel. It was perfect.
