    A very good and extremely kind team !! With a bar area where all people can gather ! Santa teresa district is one of the most beautiful place in Roo de Janeiro (the most beautiful ?)

    Fantastic area of Rio but not the place to stay if you are looking to socialise or interact with other people.

  4. Dorian From USA On January 11, 2015

    Great, friendly, English speaking staff, nice view, clean and quiet hostel. Quite a hike from Lapa and a distance even from the main Santa Teresa neighborhood and any stores/restaurants. Our bed was a bit broken, saggy, and uncomfortable.

    Charming little house with wonderful terrace and great staff

  6. Lena Elisabeth From Germany On December 17, 2014

    Its a very nice place to enjoy de diversity of Rio. The ambience is fabulous, the staff is very kind and the view of the terrace is amazing. We come back soon :)

    Villa Leonor is beatiful, and has an amazing view of the city. The terrace, where you eat breakfast is very charming. When arriving we felt a bit like they weren´t used to backpackers and it´s also in an area that some taxi drivers don´t want to go to at night so it can make your journey home a bit more dificult. Still, at the weekend the atmosphere was amazing, and it is a nice place to stay - for a cheap price- if you want to see Lapa or Centre for the weekend.

  10. Adrian From USA On August 27, 2013

    Great place. Great and friendly staff. Nice view from the commons area.After the staff explains how the busses work you feel that all of Rio is at your fingertips. Would have liked more orange juice at the breakfasts...but that's nit-picking. :-)

    Really friendly and helpful staff, along with an incredible view with breakfast! Good value for money and easy access to tourist sites through the local buses.
