Hey, I'm Joao!
Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil · Member since April 2012

Hi, my name is João.

I come from Portugal and have been living in Brazil for 3 years.

Since 2013 i have been hosting foreign tourists and students in this 6 bedroom Guesthouse, located in a small favela called Chapéu Mangueira, in Leme (Copacabana).

Here you can find affordable accommodation, in comfort and safety, and also have a fantastic insight into the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, with their lively atmosphere and amzing views.

Chapéu Mangueira is a small community, with only around 3000 people, and it is really safe and friendly. It was one of the first favelas to be pacified, in 2009.

The house has a privileged location, very close to all the facilities of Leme neighborhood and the wonders of Leme beach.

I am more than happy to help my guests get around town and enjoy a truly magnificent time here, and maybe learn a little portuguese. We speak portuguese, english, spanish, french and italian.

Hope to see you soon,
