Property Description

Located in a 5 minutes walk distance from Lapa - where Rio nightlife happens -, Santa Teresa is an old, charming and cultural neighborhood. With a privileged view of the city, you can enjoy our bar, deck, swimming pool, and our small Forest where it’s possible to see little monkeys if you are lucky.

In Rio Forest we try to create a nice atmosphere to meet each other, so 7 till 10 pm you can enjoy our happy hour with double caipirinhas and good music. During the week we have options like hamburgues or mexican food. We believe there is nothing better than drinks, food and music to meet, talk with people and get ready for the best street parties (or make the party right here if you prefer!). We also host events almost every weekend, further improving your contact with the Rio lifestyle and local Brazilians.

    this place is just the best. Stay here when you visit RIO. i stayed in tons of hostels in rio and this one topped them all. amazing staff who i befriended immediately, amazing affordable and delicious fancy drinks on a terrace with a beautiful view, best atmosphere ever. the whole place went out in a group of 30 when the bar closed to hit the town. rooms are safe and clean and the hostel is very cute and in the best neighborhood in rio for nightlife and artistic views. couldn’t recommend more.

    Area is not very safe, close to the night life but a whole from the beach, but if you don’t mind Uber-ing around it has a super fun vibe, lovely staff and a fantastic pool by a bar with a stunning view.

    Nice place with nice staff. Bad wifi and bad isolation. I could hear everything from my room. One night a guy from my dormroom asked for the AC at night... I got sick even when I tried to put my clothes on. Not cool The common area is beautiful and the pool is perfect

    It's a wonderful hostel to be at! And I would visit again :) But something you need to do to get to the hostel is walk a long flight of steps! Maybe like 50-70 steps! But I saw each one pant once they're up !!

    Genuinely shocked how this place has such a high rating. The location is in a really sketchy hillside that is fine by day but difficult to get to safely at night. Make sure you uber or taxi because the metro is a whopping 20 minute walk away. Wifi doesn't even reach the room I was staying in, just kind of got told "that's how it is". The 9 bed room is tiny and the beds are loud, squeaky, and uncomfortable. The only plus is the views, and the staff members (special shout to Juan & Melisa)
