Mi estancia en Plain and Simple, fue como lo dice el nombre, muy sencilla el lugar limpio y tranquilo, aunque había mucha austeridad, para ser un hostal le hace falta las áreas comunes, cuarto de tv y alguna cocina, también falto que nos dieran desayuno nos pareció caro el precio por los servicios que brindaba. Y por último, el lugar se veía muy peligroso pero nunca paso nada, todo estaba cerca.
Uds fueron muy amables, es una pena que no leyeron la descripcion del hostel antes de venir. Decimos muy claro que es una casa vieja en un barrio bohemio, la cuna del samba y que no tiene TV, desayuno, cocina etc. Que no es estilo medio-burgues. Decimos esto justo para no decepcionar los huespedes. Por el mismo precio vas a encontrar una cama en un cuarto con 20 camas en otro hostel--pero con los "amenities" que querian. Estamos para gente que quieren sabanas y toallas de algodon, techos altos, pisos de madera, y un lugar afuera de lo comun pero con facil acceso a todo. Lo siento que no entendieron lo que ofrecemos. Esperamos que han gustado de Rio igual y vieron mas porque no tuvimos TV para atraparles en el hostel :-)
I felt very welcomed by Tomi and Jane and ..like at home..! Thank you.
The location is very special,charming, clean and quiet.
We found this hostel by accident -- we needed to be close to the bus station to go on the next leg of our trip. I wish we had time to stay longer so we could have explored more of this historic neighborhood and enjoyed more of the live samba and forró music nearby. Next time we want to go see the stilt-walkers at their theatre a block away, we saw a few coming back from an event and it was quite a sight.
If you are a curious and adventurous traveler who avoids the typical tourist route, it will be a breath of fresh air to stay at Plain & Simple and enjoy real cotton sheets, high ceilings, wood floors, and feel as if you have stepped back into the old Rio. These days most of Rio is one chaotic construction site --but fascinating. And especially the port area will soon be changed forever, who knows how long you have to see it like this?
I really enjoyed my stay at Plain and Simple. The room was clean and freshly painted and the shower was first class. The surrounding neighborhood was vibrant with many local samba events giving you a feel for the real Brazil.
It is exactly as advertised; plain, simple, clean, safe and affordable.
WOW what a great time thank you Jane & Tomi for the accomodations.
It was exactly what I needed - reasonably priced and clean - I loved the location too - off the path of touristic Rio - The location made me feel like I was part of the fabric of the city . I'll be back next year and will def stay with you again.
Just right! I needed a comfortable place to spend the night in Gamboa and it was perfect. Good location on a rough but safe neighborhood street. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Nice hot shower. Good wifi. GREAT VALUE. Thanks! I'll be back.
I had been several times in Rio before, but this hostel allowed me to discover a very different city - a fascinating city as well. In Gamboa you are in the middle of a very alive zone, that is linked to the past, the slavery port of the XIX century, and to the future, which is an area in a big urban transformation. The atmosphere of the neighbourhood is incredible, and we could walk all over the streets beside the center, the heart of the old city. The hostel has also a very good relation quality/price. And Tomi and his family give to the place a fantastic energy.
Great place and location! I enjoyed staying in Gamboa. As Rio's port zone, the neighborhood has lots to offer in terms of history and nightlife all the like. Not the usual South Zone Rio/Copacabana joint, yet highly recommended for anyone traveling on budget and willing to explore a different side of Rio de Janeiro.
