The Space

Rent bed in small but cozy apartment in Rio de janeiro downtown, close to the Lapa and Santa Teresa area, 10 minutes from the metro. You can have bus to all parts of the city from my street.
I have internet and cable TV. I am an excellent host, easy living, but hardly stay at home!
Most of the time you will be the owner of the place! I have a small kitchen where you can cook! It's a small but cozy place, where you can pay little and feel comfortable.

Cradle of trickery Rio, frequented by bohemian in the 1930s , Lapa began to be occupied in the eighteenth century. Samba dancers of the old guard, uptight young, covered in piercings hipsters, students, tourists, executives, transvestites and prostitutes make the region one of the Arcos da Lapa Babel fertile and lively nightlife.

  • I had such a good Time at Nubia's I extended my stay for another 21 nights which was a month in total. Nubia is a very positive and uplifting person to be around We had some very interesting conversations on Philosophy, History, Politics, Religion and Art. I was homesick for some of my stay because I had been Brazil for 2 months, but Nubia encouraged me to go out and explore the city more and told me all the best places to visit. I highly recommend staying at Nubia's apartment. Thank you Nubia for your hospitality. x

  • Mi estadia con Nubia fue muy grata, pase unos dias increibles en Rio y pude conversar y conocer algunas cosas interesantes de la cultura brasileña platicando con ella, compartimos un dia de Carnaval en un bloco en el area de Lapa, el lugar es pequeño pero localizado centricamente, cerca de restaurantes, tiendas, bares, metro y bus, muchas gracias a Nubia ya que gracias a ella tambien pude conocer a otras maravillosas personas. Nubia, espero algun dia volver a Brasil y poder conversar alegremente y tu español es fantastico, saludos y un abrazo desde Mexico.

  • Que dizer ... tive a sorte de viver por um tempo pequeno no fantástico castelo de a Núbia.
    Para mim não foi sò uma host, mas uma amiga, uma pessoa com quem compartilhar suas paixões e sonhos.

    Tudo meravilhoso, como ela.

  • I had an amazing stay at Núbia's home! She is warm, welcoming and really funny too! We made really good friends with her, and I would totally recommend staying with her.
    She is very energetic person, excellent portuguese teacher and good singer as well!
    The location is ok, little bit far away from the beaches, but very close to the amazing nightlife in Rio.

    Thank you so much Núbia! Beijos!

  • Nubia is a very caring, considerate and correct host! She took care of me not only as a houseguest, but treated me as a friend visiting. Very nice, very appreciated! I can recommend Nubia as a host, with her you are well taken care of!
    Lapa is the night life quarters. It's very easy to get around in Rio. To get to the southern beaches you will easily find a bus taking you there from Lapa.
    Thank you Nubia!

  • Had a brilliant time with Nubia, she's one of a kind. With me being away from my family at Christmas she invited me to spend it with hers. Very welcoming and warm person. The apartment is perfectly located in Lapa for all the nightlife and it has good transport connections to the more touristy areas with the central bus station only a stones throw from the apartment. All in all I would definitely recommend Nubia's place if you want the real Rio and not just the stuff you see on the television.
