Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Fantastic area of Rio....5 mins from beach, bus & metro stops right on top of you. Good places to eat along same street. Always felt safe & never felt safety was a problem.
    Large flat, other guests were there at same time, this was never a problem. Clean, comfortable. Good bedroom, kitchen & bathroom.
    Taxis to surrounding areas of a night were cheap.
    Excellent to discover all tourist attractions......We loved it here
    Don't hesitate to stay here !
    Thank you !

  • Antônio gave us some good suggestions for things to do in Rio. He is very kind and his two cats are great. The apartment was clean and in a really great location. It was convenient to public transportation and the beach. We could easily catch the bus or get on the metro when we were exploring around town or walk to the beach on low key days. We highly recommend Antônio and his apartment.

  • Antônio was a great host and the flat/room is in a nice area in Flamengo near the beach, metro, supermarket, cafés and restaurants. I really enjoyed staying there and felt like home! I would recommend it for anyone. Thanks a lot Antônio!

  • Junior is a great host! He answered any questions and/or concerns I had promptly and efficiently. The apartment is in a great, central location and has everything you need. The street can get a little noisy at times, but if you are used to city sounds, this is no problem. The apartment was professionally cleaned once a week, so everything was always in order. Junior's cats are also very friendly! I enjoyed the roughly 5 months I spent as Junior's guest.

  • Antônio was a kind and welcoming host and the apartment is in a fantastic location. I would recommend staying here!

  • Antonio (Junior) was a good host. His friend, Raul and roommate Thomas was very sweet; I enjoyed chatting with them. Antonio helps with anything you need (He is a little shy, so ask him if you need help, directions etc). You can use the washer machine and the kitchen at your convenience. The room is sufficient and clean; it has a closet, a desk and an A/C (Everything you need).

    The building is conveniently located with public transportation, cafes, supermarkets, banks, etc available right next to his place (which means a little noisy at times but if the window is closed, not a big problem). Only 2 minutes walk from his place and you can take a bus to Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf which only takes 15 minutes to arrive. Copacabana is about 30 min in traffic. His two cats are lovely; bring some treats for them!

  • Antonio was a great host! He explained to me everything I needed to know. The localization is very good, really next to a subway station, a big supermarket and a lot of restaurants. The room has air conditioner, which is essential in Rio de Janeiro!

  • My girlfriend and I, stayed in this honest medium sized bedroom with air con, big bed, small tv, wardrobe and a desk. Brazil is freaking expensive right now, so it was a good alternative for the crazy expensive hostels. If you love cats, you will love the apartment, two cute cats living there. Junior, the owner, is very kind and is always willing to help in what ever you ask.

  • The place is great located between city centre and southern beaches; Ipanema and Copacabana. Public transport runs right next door and from the neighborhood you'll find everything you need for everyday life; groceries, restaurants, pubs, kiosks. Antônio was a great host! He picked us up from the airport and help us in everything. I'll recommend this place to my friends.
