The view is wonderful and the staff is super friendly. There are lockere and a kitchen as well as a shared fridge. In 15/20 minutes walk You are in the Center and lots of Bars and Restaurants are close.

Very good hostel! Calm, relaxing place, with a beautiful balcony and a great view of Rio from Santa Tereza highs. I've had better breakfasts in hostels and the rooms aren't the cleanest on earth, BUT the staff is absolutely great and there are many facilities options. Excellent value for money, and an awesome view. Totally worth it.

We stayed for Carnaval. All staff were really helpful with getting around Rio and what to visit. Neighborhood is nice and short walk to metro. Awesome views over the city


The Terra Brasilis is situated in an amazing part of Rio, the view of the city is amazing from the hostel's terrace. Most of the staff was adorable and very eager to help us and give us advice on what to do and how to do it for the carnival (especially the guy from argentina who was our favorite!). You are likely to meet nice people there. We were in Rio in the summertime and it was amazingly hot, so air conditioned would have been nice, but overall, it was a great hostel to stay in.


I really love that hostel! I all the time use it for my stay in Rio
