Very clean hostel, we had a double room with bathroom, very good has air con and fan, hot shower, can use kitchen to cook, breakfast good, very secure, nice area short walk to Santa Teresa bars and restaurants, 20 min walk Uphill from Gloria metro station, but can get a bus or mototaxi, staff are excellent and super helpful and friendly and have good recommendations where to go each day, thank you all, would recommend as a great hostel in safe area, supermarket 5 min walk away, we loved it :)


We loved our stay at this hostel. We only stayed for 1 night, but this was the best hostel I have ever been in. The staff was great and the location was perfect. There is a lot of space, and the kitchen area is amazing. I would love to come back to this hostel if i'm going back to Brazil.

Great hostel in fantastic location in middle of Santa Theresa. Totally different side to Rio, very bohemian. Lovely old house, huge shared space in kitchen, great staff. Only downside was few people there as dorms were closed as low season. Probably worth checking if dorms are open if you are looking for buddies to explore the city with. Still we met a lovely couple in the other double private.


Extremely clean and organized. They thought about everything you could need in your staying, I mean, if you wonder something probaly they will be prepered to figure it out. They have a really nice decoration and a relaxing outside area. Oh, I can't forget this, they have a SUPER NINTENDO! hahaha


This is a beautifully decorated, welcoming hostel with incredibly outgoing and friendly staff. The breakfast was great and plentiful and the price we paid for the room was worth it. There were plenty of bathrooms available, the room itself was clean albeit on the small side and the kitchen was well equipped and had more than enough room for all of tall of the guests to cook. The internet was quick and there was even a second connection if the first one wasn't working.


Our experience at this hostel was fantastic! It is wonderfully placed with access to all of Rio's fantastic offerings. The staff was top notch and more than willing to assist with helping us enjoy Rio to the fullest. Great English speaking staff that has a lot of great connections in the city. They set us up with 2 different tours and a hang gliding trip. I highly recommend this hostel to anybody that is visiting Rio.
