The Pousada is fantastic value for money in Rio de Janeiro, and the location is perfect, 10 mins walk one way to Copacabana beach, and 10 mins walk the other way to Ipanema beach, there is also a metro station in Ipanema which will take you to other areas in Rio.
My room was great, very big, clean, cool, comfortable, good shower, and secure. Ligia speaks very good English, and she will help you with directions for sightseeing, and finding good nightlife, all the staff were very friendly. A lovely breakfast is served upstairs in the terrace, offering spectacular views of Rio
The neighbourhood is not a problem, and you should find most of the locals are friendly, I never had any issues when walking back home at night.
The pousada is high up with a few steps to climb, as long as you are reasonably fit, this shouldn't be a problem. I would recommend staying here in the future.
