    Way more than a hostel. Really one of the best places I've ever been even compared to European (almost hotel) hostels.

    Santa Tere hostel is really lovely! Nice pool and areas to hang out, computers, everything. Room was nice and air conditioned. Staff was friendly and helpful. Santa the cat is a good addition as well. Never had any problems walking as I only turned left to exit. However the location makes for some Ubers to cancel rides later on, give a little extra time to find one. Otherwise everything was great!

    Excellent hostel with a great view of the city. The pool is kept clean, the crossfit gym has everything you need and is open, the vibe is really nice here.

    We loved our stay at Santa Tere! The staff here are amazing and Filipe is so helpful - nothing is too much trouble. The vibe here is perfect - very social but not too loud that you can’t get a good nights sleep. The room was comfortable and the pool is amazing for those super hot days. We would 100% recommend staying here whilst in Rio.

    First, the pool. Amazing a long day of walking. Sweet views of the city, too. Cool staff. Great breakfast, huge kitchen. Common areas were spacious and welcoming. Minor complaints: the lockers had very small rings, so my lock wouldn't fit. Also, location is not the best; the area seems slightly sketchy at night and you need to walk a bit to get to the metro. Still, the atmosphere was lively and a lovely cat named Santa walks around the place like a rock star. I loved the cat.

    Really chilled out, great way to start the trip. Über driver had an absolute nightmare finding the place, definitely get a yellow cab as the hostel suggests. Location was good and walking distance to the party area of the city. Lovely staff.

    Nice hostel. The staff was helpful and the caipirinha were great. The double bedroom was clean but old. The mattress was old and the sheets too, they would need to be change. The view was amazing! The breakfast was simple but good. I would definitely recommend.

    The hostel itself is good and nice. It is not located in a good area though. We had to take Uber every time we went out, the neighborhood is sketchy. Breakfast is ok. Pool is very nice. Some of the staff were very friendly, others not so much.

    Very Good

    Helpful & friendly lady on reception desk. Great all you can eat breakfast buffet with tea & coffee. Fully equipped kitchen. We stayed in a private room that was tired but clean, same as the bathrooms. Nice views from the hostel. At first glance you may feel unsafe in the area but after exploring found the location 2 b ok. I would advise to always turn left out of the hostel as previous guests have had very bad experiences according to other reviews. Overall a great place to stay. 28 M&F GB

    The hostel offered a wonderful breakfast selection. The pool was awesome with a good view of the sunset. There was a pool table and computers in the lobby area. Wifi in common area was slow but the connection in our room (private room) was good. There was a secured door to the entrance which is very good because the hostel isn't in a good area. On our first night we wandered 5 minutes walk from the hostel and ended up in a favela and had a gun pulled on us. MAKE SURE YOU TURN LEFT WHEN EXITING.
