What a beautiful mansion. Great location, short walk to Lapa or Santa Teresa. Easy bus access for Copocabana, Impanema or any of Rio's attractions. Great staff. Nice patios, lobby and breakfast. Coffee, water and tea all day long. Perfect recommendations for restaurants, favela tour, and other sights. Fernanda was so kind and helpful. She arranged for transportation from the hostel...

This is the most amazing place to stay that I would just travel to Rio just to go to Bossa Rio! The beautiful Mansion is gorgeously decorated that makes the common area a great hang out spot! But what makes this place the best is the incredible Staff! They give better customer service than any 5 star hotel which is...

I stayed in this Hostel together with my wife and children (20, 18 and 16 years). We realy loved Rio and got very good information from the people of Bossa in Rio. They were all very friendly, even when we forgot to leave our room at 12.00+. They really helped us out to catch the plane to our next destination....

I have not often experienced such a great service before on my travels in South America. I arrived to Rio very ill from dengue and I was hospitalised on my second day.

Had a lovely one-night stay in a private ensuite room that felt like a nice hotel--clean, comfortable, and spacious, with a great bathroom. Staff was extremely helpful and let us check into our room early. The location is great if you want to be out of the fray a bit. It's very close to Lapa and a slew of buses...

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.
