    I think my trip to Rio could've easily been a disappointment because it was mostly cloudy and rainy whilst I was there. I was also ill for most of my stay and that didn't help my case. However, Bossa In Rio turned that all around...More

    Clean place, Friendly staff, great breakfast! You just need to walk down the hill to reach Lapa and Centro. Going up to the hostel is a good workout though the area going up could be a little scary at first,especially when walking alone at night,...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.
