Great service and very friendly people.
Unfortunately I was not able to stay due to a scheduling change but I was able to give it to my friends to stay. The host was extremely helpful and flexible in working with me to make it happen. They said it was a very clean and nice place and the hosts were very nice! Will definitely be staying here again in the future!

The guesthouse is very well situated close by to Ipanema beach (at the end of the street) train station is 2 minutes walk. Plenty of restaurants and shops also close by. Gabby and Jaoa are great hosts they are friendly, genuine and always there to help, Gabby even showed me around the neighbourhood on first night i got to the building, even though it was very late, they helped me organise some tours with locals. Great value for money option, would definitely stay here again. Overall cannot recommend highly enough!

Fantastic location,absolutely great&helpful hosts
Great location, close to Ipanema beach and general osario metro. Very clean spacious and good place to stay. Took the breakfast included option n was fantastic. However the best experience was how helpful the hosts were (Gabby n Jose), they took time to introduce us to the area and building and even took us out to Lapa n so on. I loved it
