    Clean dorms with big locker space under most bunk beds as well as smaller lockers for use, however the main downfall was the amount of bathrooms/showers. Only two bathrooms with one shower and toilet each upstairs between approximately 50+ guests. There are two showers downstairs...More

    This hostel can be perfect for someone looking for a value deal. It has decent breakfast to offer, centrally located, friendly and very informative staff. There are hardly any restrictions, in fact you will often see main staff/owner chilling around, talking to other fellow travellers!...More

    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.
