The house is wonderful,and worthy to share with everyone!
Feel welcome everybody,for the truly Rio life style
What a host! André makes you feel at home the minute you step inside his house. My family stayed for 6 Days over NYE 2013-2014 and we loved it. André is very down to earth, funny, smart, respectful and he seems to really enjoy his guest´s company.
André´s house is located in Santa Teresa with a 5-10 minute walk from the closest metro station, which will take you to Copacabana and Ipanema in about 15 minutes.
The house is beautiful with sweet hang out areas. All rooms are private with their own bathroom/WC.
My whole family(mom, sister and brother) loved André and staying at his place. The biggest recommendations!
Great place in one of the nicest (and safest) neighbourhoods of Rio. Simple, but comfortable rooms. But most of all: Andre is a great host who makes you feel completely at home!
Andre couldn't have made our experience any better! He was a delightful host with his down to earth personality and well-rounded knowledge of the city. The house itself is beautiful with plenty of space even with our group of nine people. The garden creates a cozy feel for the house. Everything is included in the house with showers and bathrooms in every room. The neighborhood is safe with friendly locals. If ever the opportunity arises, we would definitely want to come back to the house we called home.
We stayed 5 nights and 6 days at Andre's place and it was an amazing time!
The house is very very spacious, and so perfect for groups. It's clean and well decorated, and the fact that nature is all around helps getting an unique atmosphere. The location is also great, being near from the night life of Rio, the bohem neighborhood of Santa Teresa, and only 30 minutes away from Copacabana beach!!
Moreover, Andre is really helpful, friendly, and we spent very good nights chatting with him and his girlfriend Sarah. He can speak several languages and is full of stories to tell!
To put it in a nutshell, we loved the place and the owner!!
We can't encourage you more to go see by yourself!
Thanks again Andre, and for sure we'll see you soon!
Andre's hostel is the best place in Santa Teresa and in Rio! REALLY!
The situation is perfect!
It's really clean, hot water, very calm, beautiful hostel, funny monkey, and Andre of course ;)
Andre loves Rio and he shared all his secret place with us... and can teach you the caîpirihna ' secret ! he was really helping with us.
If you want to discover the bresilian mood you have to spend your time in this hostel...
We keep a very very good memories of this stay.
Andre is super nice and welcoming, and we immediately felt comfortable in the house. The guest house is in Santa Teresa, one of my favorite neighborhoods in Rio. Andre has great recommendations for places to go in the area and is helpful in every way. He even got us a taxi to the airport with a set price so that we didn't have to worry about a huge taxi fare in the heavy traffic at the particular time we were going to the airport. The internet is good, and the house is adorable. There is a nice big kitchen with lots of utensils that you can use to cook meals or prepare breakfast. Each room that we stayed in has its own bathroom, and the showers were nice with warm water (which is hard to find sometimes). My mom (almost 60 and used to staying in nice hotels) LOVED this place and thought it really added to the whole experience of our time in Rio. Lots of character and good vibes! I would highly recommend this guest house!
This house is awesome! This was my second time staying here, this time with a big group. It's a great place to stay as a single traveler or with friends. Like everyone else has said, the house atmosphere is amazing and Andre is really friendly, helpful, and has lots of good tips for places to go around the city. 5 stars for sure!!
This is my third visit to Rio de Janeiro and I have to say this is the best and most charming accommodation I have ever stayed in. The house itself is secure and surrounded by lots of natural fauna with excellent transport links as well as supermarkets, restaurants and cafes. Gloria beach is just a short walk away. The rooms are regularly cleaned with fresh supplies of bedlinen and towels.
Andre was an exceptional host, very helpful, generous with information about the City, the local areas and activities.
I would definitely recommend this B&B to other people and I myself am planning to return in a few months' time.
I stayed with Andre a few months back for 4 nights and I highly recommend him! It was my first time travelling alone and in Rio but Andre make me feel welcome and safe. Not only the house is beautiful and relaxed but it is also well situated, with the Gloria metro station close by (approx 7 min walk) and many connecting buses around the city. Additionally there are some beautiful bar/restaurants a close walk from the house. It is great place to stay if you want to meet other travelers too.
Andre is really helpful with giving directions and is really fun to go out with. He is a genuinely nice guy who is passionate about Rio when definitely enhances your experience. I recommend you stay with Andre!
Amazing house with amazing feel. Will be staying again. Only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. Andre is the perfect host and a great guy. You must stay and experience the house and Andre. There was even monkeys at breakfast. 10/10
