Rio Hostel & Suítes Santa Teresa Reviews


SURPRISE - NO, we are NOT LOCATED in Copacabana and not in Ipanema.

We are located in SANTA TERESA, one of Rio's oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods where the bondinho (the last tram in Rio, more than 100 years old) is still working.
5 minutes walking distance from LAPA where the REAL SAMBA CLUBS are and where Rio's coolest night life taking place (want to see some real dancing and live shows? you better come here, don't tell us you came all the way to Brazil to go to the disco…)
Another 5 minutes from LAPA (walking) is the DOWN TOWN- and what a down town !!! markets, clubs, shops, museums, just waiting for you to be explore.

'The term 'hostel' does not do this place justice. This term should be replaced by the word 'home' as this is exactly how I was made to feel, completely at home.'

Neil Bailey - guest/friend/backpacker - Rio Hostel,2003.

So, if you want to have fun, learn a thing or two, see how real people live in a real brazilian neighborhood and feel at home - Rio Hostel, Santa Teresa, is the only place for you.
