Clean place, Friendly staff, great breakfast! You just need to walk down the hill to reach Lapa and Centro. Going up to the hostel is a good workout though the area going up could be a little scary at first,especially when walking alone at night,...More

Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
