The hostel it self is very nice and chill. The Swimming pool makes it even better plus the nice view you have from the reception when you work there. The hostel is very well equipped: kitchen, gym, big TV and confortable sofa, spacious open air areas, big tables, a place to do hand clothes washing, bathrooms and showers are nice and clean.

The staff is very nice and social and willing to help you if you need it. The treatment with the owner was fantastic, she treats all the people (guests or not) very well and is super polite and friendly.

I really recommend it.

Obrigada você! por ter contribuido com o crescimento do hostel, por ter nos respeitado e mostrado uma otima etica de trabalho.
Estamos felizes por ter convivido com voce ;)


It is difficult to describe how was experience at Santa Tere. Everything was great. Maria and the staff are incredible people and they always do their best for the guest. Santa Tere is my home/ fanily outside Argentina. I would recommend everyone to stay there if you look for an incredible mix of a great place, wonderful city and specially, awesome people.

Everybody at Sante Terê was friendly and warm, always ready to help with the best of energy and intentions. Truly a lovely team. Sadly, I had a family issue and had to run back to Argentina. They were more than understading and supportive about this and let me go without saying a word, only encouragement and good wishes.

A team to remember!
