From Nights People


Urukum is a brand new hostel that offers quality affordable accommodation in the charming Santa Teresa area. A manor located in a quiet neighborhood with panoramic view of Rio's beauty, we are only 15 minutes away from the business of Lapa's nightlife and the richness of the historical center.

Santa Teresa is an area known for its restaurants, traditional bars and numerous art galeries and ateliers. The warm and friendly atmosphere of the neighborhood goes perfectly with all the trees, birds and occasional family of long tailed monkeys. But if you are looking for the exciting city life, don't worry, we are only a few minutes away from Lapa (the core of Rio's nightlife) and the historical/business center.
