Everyone treated us like family. We also got to know the area very well. The pousada is in a great location. Santa Teresa is a BEAUTIFUL neighborhood with great food,... More

Absolutely a fantastic experience staying here during my recent stay in Rio. The staff was more than willing to help me with any questions during my stay. The place felt very natural and really made me feel apart of the culture in Rio. I definitely recommend it here, you can't go wrong.

I visited Rio this past February for Carnaval and had the most amazing experience at this pousada. The owners are sweethearts; kind, caring and fun! The staff follows suit and is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about everything going on in Rio. As you can imagine, trying to navigate the city during carnaval can be challenging, but they made it happen... More

Excellent atmosphere. Our family (2 adults, 3 children) trip in Brazil ended in Casa Aurea after 2 weeks in the North and in Ilha Grande. We had a very good time at the pousada and everyone made us feel like at home. We loved the location and the big common area where we had breakfast and could talk with other... More

we came here and spent 9 nights for Carnaval The location: nice street, safe enough (even at night) as long as you take normal precautions. staff good at calling taxi's for you if need be. probably a 5-8min walk to the main part of Santa Tereza. lots of up and down and cobblestones -- may not be the best area...

We planned a trip to Brazil to experience the Carnival. We looked for a place close to everywhere- beaches, forests, and favelas. Casa Aurea the posada (B&B) in Santa Teresa was the best location for us as it met our requirements and was not too crowded. Santa Teresa is a small town on top of the hill with spectacular view...

Casa Aurea is a beautiful place to stay! The staff is friendly and ready to help all guests find fun activities. The food is great, the rooms are comfortable! There are truly no complaints!! The environment in the pousada is very open and friendly, it is a great place for families and for young people to stay.

such a beautiful hostel in the quaint and charming Santa Theresa. Really well maintained, lovely common area and Paola was such a help from the first time I had emailed her with a thousand questions. We stayed here during the world cup so, in hindsight, location was not convenient to get to/from copacabana every day. But, it is close to... More
