Neighbourhood
Santa Teresa
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.

Lovely hostel with affordable price, and friendly staff. Fair breakfast, clean and good beds. Localized on Lapa, one of the most festive and cultural neighborhoods in Rio. I had the opportunity to see a stunning sunrise view in the hostel.

Up on a hill in Santa Teresa, this hostel boasts great views. I had a private room with a balcony that I spent a lot of time on enjoying the view! The room was small, it was really better for 1 person than for 2, but adequate. The bathroom was teeny tiny with no counter space,

Olá Paulo! tudo bem? Obrigado por nos contactar , Nós temos lugar para estacionar fora do hostel, na rua, pois a gente fica num bairro residencial aos pés da floresta, onde todos os vizinhos deixam seus carros também por ser um lugar tranquilo e seguro, mas ainda é rua, por isso a gente não pode se fazer responsável no caso de algo acontecer com o carro. Embora em todos os anos que a gente leva funcionando nada ruim tem acontecido. Sempre a precaução e bem-vinda.
