The guest house is relatively inexpensive for Rio and clean but those are the only positives. The location is far away from the beaches and activity. The cost you save in staying here will soon be made up with constant bus and taxi rides. The rooms are unbearably hot. We could not get a good night sleep. The worse part...

Spent 2 nights there during World Cup. I guess the prices whre high due to that as well, but no reason for coldish shower, broken window. The staff was friendly and I learned a lot, got great advice about Rio, same from friendly guests, but they staff could not or would not fix anything. It's a 5 star for the...

My friends and I were at the FIFA world cup and were pleased to reside at this guest house for three nights. The place is clean and well situated within 5 minutes of the train station and bus stops to Copacabana and other destinations in Rio. Their rates for the rooms was fair considering that it was during the final...

We stayed in the suite, the room was really nice, beautiful fixtures and fittings. Toilet and shower was in the same room as the bedroom which is fine until you need a number 2 and your partner has to leave the room.... Big problem was the lack of AC which was annoying as we searched for AC rooms on booking.com...

The rooms were clean and well presented with the views breathtaking. We managed to visit during a random wet period and it made the guest house even more appealing. If it had not been for the rain we might not have sampled the homemade food or Caipairinhas and we would have missed out. The hammock in the downstairs sitting area...

This guest house is a perfect place! The owner is very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom was very clean and fresh renovated. The location - at the bottom of the Christo and a very safe neighbourhood even in the night - is also perfect. Enjoy your stay!

This place is fun, kooky, hospitable and charming. Being on the hill in a quieter district with amazing transport links, feels as though you are truly living in rio, as opposed to another gimmicky hotel. Eating our breakfasts (prepared in our own small but well equipped kitchen) on our massive private terrace was a sheer delight, as the views from...

We had booked the guest house in advance, having emailed the staff about child friendliness of the hotel. When we arrived after our long flight, there was no one to let us in! We tried calling and eventually some very nice neighbours helped us find another hotel for the night. You can imagine we were a bit freaked out being...
