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.

"I think the private room is an excelent option if you want more silence."
"The rooms that connect to the terrace are amazing with breath-taking views."
"Privates are good upstairs, the dorms are roomy and fine - they could do with a little colour and freshening up."
