- Offers nice views over Rio and on the sugar loaf - Very calm area only a 15min walk from the bars and restaurants in Santa Teresa. - Close to a favela which gave a strange first impression but in the end was no problem at all because the favela is pacified and security is assured by national police down the street. - The staff was not always available since there are only a few people working there. - The deluxe ensuite room was a dorm which was reserved just only for us.

A very charming house, which really does have spectacular views over Rio de Janeiro. We stayed in a private room, which was big and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and have created a very relaxed atmosphere. The house is on a pretty steep incline from the nearest metro, which is fine if you are fit and able but would be a problem for people with any physical difficulties. I think this should be highlighted to potential guests!

The location on the map is wrong.There is no sign, understandable given the neighborhood. Even taxi drivers have difficulty finding the place. Its not easily recognizable from the street,The numbering on the houses does not correspond to the houses across the street.As you go up the hill it will be on the right-hand side. Large iron gate will be the entrance. My "six bed dorm" was a cot in a large room shared with others.The "great view" you see in the photos is not a shared communal area.
The place is like a mansion in the top of a mountain, the view is the best ever and the staff is warm and very helpful, they even gave us a tour by the house. However, the hostel is just a place for sleeping, sharing and resting because there is no easy transportation outside and when you need a taxi they’ll always refuse to climb to the house and if you go with big backpacks take in consideration that you will have to climb with them by yourself all the way to the hostel.
Best View ever. Amazing bedroom. (3 floors) Great Staff, unfortunalety the hot shower of my private bedrom wasnt working, so they allowed me to use a shared bathroom instead. Internet was not working. Despite staff and views being great, there is a lot room for improvement.
