We stayed 6 nights in the Porta de Pedra private room and were very satisfied with our stay. The hostel is just as it looks to be in pictures, an old mansion converted into a hostel that is located halfway up the very large hill to Santa Teresa. We originally thought it seemed a little pricey for a private room... More

The staff is outstanding! Helpful and friendly. Kudos too Sole, Natalie and Chelsea. They helped making I regret of staying for only 2 days . I stayed on Eustacio room, which is 5 persons beds. I cannot recomend it if you are not able to sleep with a bit of noisy. Even the water system working can wake you up.... More

Stayed here for our last night after two weeks in Rio - honestly the best view anywhere. The rooftop terrace is lovely, the location is quiet, the staff are really friendly and helpful.

This place was glorious. After a 30 hour journey I would have taken a nap right there on top of my suitcase in the middle of Rio but when I reached Casa 579 all I could do was stare at the incredible view from our room's balcony. The room was clean and spacious, having a hammock to relax in and... More

Enjoyed my stay here. There's a beautiful view of downtown rio on both sides of the road, and there's a magnificent balcony upstairs. The breakfast was really good, with plenty of freshly-made fruit juices and a tasty cake. Transport to the centre is actually pretty good, using cheap buses and the metro. The staff were all very interesting, most of... More
