Located on a plot of 1,000m², our house has a spacious, charming open area with a beautiful view of the city’s landmarks (Guanabara Bay, Downtown Rio de Janeiro, the Arcs of Lapa and the city of Niteroí).

We also have a pool, a deck and a bar, all within a real rainforest with several species of Brazilian plants and – if you’re lucky – monkeys.

You can relax after the beach, have a drink before experiencing Rio’s nightlife or make the party right here! We also host events almost every weekend, further improving your contact with the Rio lifestyle and local Brazilians.

We offer 10 rooms in the best location in Santa Teresa. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, lockers and a balcony with a view. We have options with shared bathrooms or private bathrooms.

Please see our Must-Read Hostel Info below before making a booking.
Prices are per person per night.
