Hey...
I just responded to this, I swear yesterday or the day before. But there is a really cool old mansion in Santa Teresa that has been renovated into a hostel / poussada. It is like 5 minutes from like the center of nightlife... and located in Santa Teresa... it is very cool... internet, pool, and a kickín breakfast. And all for the cheapest price you can find in Rio for a hostel... about 30 reals a night. It is very very cool. If you want a dorm... no need for a reservation since it is very low key and not in any of the guidebooks. It is called Casa Mangomango.... Rua Joaquim Murtinho, 587 -Santa Teresa, just tell the taxi driver -perto lapa. It rocks. Let me know how you like it. The owners name is Julie - she is irish but with two beautiful brasilian kids... but she can help you out with lots of stuff as well.
Take Care,
hattie
