About Art Hostel Rio

Welcome to Art Hostel Rio!

The hostel is a beautiful redeveloped old building from the end of the 19th Century, situated just over the road from the gardens of Catete Palace, Brazil’s presidential palace from 1894 to 1960. Home to many consulates and art-decó buildings, nowadays it is mostly a middle-class residential neighborhood.

All of rooms have private bathroom, ceiling fans, private lockers and the hostel offers lockers, lines and towels.

A buffet breakfast is served each morning in the breakfast room. It includes a variety of fresh fruits, breads and cold meats, as well as a selection of hot and cold drinks.

Only 20 metres from Rio de Janeiro’s Catete subway station and ten minutes walking from Lapa, Art Hostel Rio offers lounge areas, shared accommodation, free computers, free cable tv room, shared kitchen and free Wi-Fi. There is a sundeck with loungers and Flamengo Beach is 500 metres away.

Maracanã Stadium is 9 km away, while downtown of Rio is only 3 km from the hostel. Santos Dumont Airport is 3 km away and there are buses from Galeão Airport that stops in our corner.

As the name implies, the Art Hostel Rio frequently has students, artists, and musicians staying here, and our walls and rooms show off some of their works.

And we also have a Pousada in Paraty City named Atobá, if you want contact us to see the possibility to spend some days in there with a special price booking our Hostel and the Pousada together; contato@arthostelrio.com

Guest Reviews

We, three young women from the U.S., had booked at Art Hostel for several days during Carnaval. It quickly became one of the worst travel experiences ever. Our first room was infested with bed bugs. The hostel management then acknowledged that previously in the week they had another bed bug incident (information that would have been much more helpful BEFORE we got infested). They moved us to another room in the same hostel, and there were bed bugs there. They then moved us to another establishment called "Hostelo" for lack of a better word, under the same ownership in Cinelandia (informally known to us as the Porn District). Allegedly, it was a soon-to-be-open hotel, and we were the first people to stay in the room they gave us. After spending an entire day of our trip dealing with all of that—moving hotels, etc.--we then spent a good chunk of the rest of our trip dealing with the horrible management (the owner's name is Eduardo) and, unfortunately, the bed bugs that we transported with us from Art Hostel to this other, unnamed, not-yet-open hotel. Eduardo was not only unsympathetic and rude to us during our stay, he also lied and went back on his word for how he would compensate us given the horrible experience we had at both his hostel and the other Cinelandia establishment. Eduardo and those working for him made a bad situation unbearable. We highly recommend you do not stay in either Art Hostel or the not-yet-opened hotel in Cinelanda, Hotela. But if you do, watch out for bed bugs.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Art Hostel's a lovely place to stay in Rio and the location's fantastic – 10 mins from Flamengo park and beach, with great views of Pao de Acucar and Corcorvado, 20 mins walk to Lapa. It's good value for money, and the vibe's cool – very bohemian, with lots of artists and musicians coming and going, and lots of locals meeting up there. The staff are very friendly and helpful too. The only thing that put a dampener - quite literally - on our stay was the damp in the room. (We stayed in a twin room on the ground floor) After three nights of quite an overpowering smell of damp, we were ready to leave. That said, the place is spotless, the sheets daz white and the floor immaculate. It's a shame the room had damp... I'd recommend it if you were to stay just one or two nights. After that, it becomes a bit unbearable.

Service 2 stars because

We arrived and were assigned a room which already had people in it...
If we had been dishonest we could easily have taken stuff from the room because the girl at the reception gave us the key and left us alone with it...

The communication between the people at the reception isn't very efficient: we had to explain two times to two different people which part of the bill we had already paid and what was still payable. Again, if we hadn't been honest, we could easily have ripped them off.

Everything else we really enjoyed about ArtHostel, great location, very clean, reasonable prices and free internet. This is a place we'd go back to.

We stayed during Carnival, so everything is expensive, but that`s to be expected. It was clean and very funky and different, gret breakfasts, and they`re great at providing information about things going on in the city, even organizing outings! We had a blast.
