Nice hostel in the Santa Teresa area close to the tourist sites in Lappa. The hostel is decorated beautifully and has a really nice rooftop with different levels. All the other guests I met here were very nice and social

Loved this hostel! Great location, kind staff, amazing vibe. Made tons of friends here and was overall a wonderful home base to have in Rio. Would highly recommend staying here to anyone that is looking to connect with other travelers, as well as locals. Great place to gain deeper insight into the heart of this amazing city.
