The hostel is great! Location is very good, a walking distance from Santa Teresa and Lapa. The staff is very attentive and help you with anything you might need. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Atmosphere is very chilled. Good hostel to relax.


Good hostel with helpful staff and a good atmosphere. Wifi was also very good. For those of you who are thinking about to book a privat room: You will not have the bathroom that is shown on the photos, but a separate toilet and separate shower. The shower was pretty old and used, the toilet was ok.

The best hostel i ever been


One of the best hostels I stayed in my life


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
