I think this is a place suitable for young backpackers. The rooms are basic and small, but what really makes this place is the large terrace with beautiful views over Rio. Relax with a caipirinha after a long day of sightseeing and just enjoying the view felt so good . Noise was not a problem as the hostel was located...

apart from the warm welcome and the good caipirinha there is no reason to stay in this hostel. We paid almost 60 euro for an hostel, a dirty room, tap not working, plug not working, unconfortable bed and veeery old materass, locker brocken so we had to sleep with the door unlocked. For breakfast they served Italian Panettone...of course not...

This hostel was comfortable and served its purpose. I would only recommend it as a bunk over for just one night. If your planning on spending longer then you might want somewhere else as the bed can be a bit uncomfortable because it has a waterproof mattress protector and thin sheets to sleep with. Otherwise i would say its a...

We had problems coming back during week nights because taxi drivers did not want to come: it could be useful if people from the hostel advice you and try to find solutions. Not all the rooms are clean. Breakfast is poor (caffè, 1 sandwich wirh ham and cheese, not tasty fruit juice). By the way, personnel is kind and available,...

We stayed for 4 nights in May 2012 and although we had a good time, we were a little disappointed in a few aspects. We paid 70 Reais a night on weekdays and 100 Reais on weekends, for a double room (plus bunkbed), with en-suite. Villa Leonor was the cheapest accommodation we could find in Rio (although still not cheap!),...

We were there for 3 days, and we were wonderfully supported by their staff (everybody well prepared and also speak english fluently). The acomodations are simple but very comfortable. The breakfast at the balcony has an awesome view of the city's old downtown. Basically it's a great choice, near to the refion of Lapa, with low costs.

It was the cheapest place to stay (double bedroom) that we've found in Rio. The room (especially bedclothes) was dirty and the ceiling in bad condition. But the stay was very nice becouse of the staff! And breakfast, on the terrace was very good.

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Leonor Suites is located in a central region in Rio de Janeiro. The neighbourhood seems to be stopped in time with old fashioned houses, narrow, winding and tree-lined streets traced by rails of the old tram which runs around it. Fondly called "Santa", Santa Teresa has a bucolic village-like air with its own culture and artistic characteristics. ... more   less

“The bus route around the hotel is all one way so if you are taking the bus around make sure you have a map and all the possible bus numbers to the hotel as it is very easy to get lost, and it seems to be a shared experience amongst alot of guests.”
