“great location, amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Very friendly staff, great location, amazing view, cosy room (we stayed in Mangueira room).
I was little bit afraid that the place is far away from everything but we had no problem with getting there by taxi and casa 579 is very conveniently located, bus stop is just around the corner, easy acces to metro station with kombi, the same at night, kombi takes you direcly from Lapa to casa 579 and it felt very safe (it was around 2 a.m.)

I already stayed in the Casa 579 two times, because I liked it so much. It is propably a little bit far away from the beach, but that does not matter as the view over the city and to the Christ is unforgettable. The staff is helpful and friendly with advises for everything. The breakfast is really good with fresh fruits, juices and a delicious cake. The 12 bed dorm is big with an extra room for luggage whereas the 5 bed dorm is a little bit small. The common room is cozy and on the terrace you can enjoy the view over the city in a hammock.

Overall we had a great stay here. The staff are so helpful and nice. They really take care of the guests. Breakfast was delicious. The monkeys which show up every now and then for breakfast are just great! The only negative point are the dorms, in particular the 5 bed dorm. It is absolutely too small for 5 people and the 5th bed is a very old and worn looking thing which is shoved into the corner. The bigger dorms are actually better. After 2 nights in the 5 bed dorm we asked to be moved there which was no problem. Staff were great again in accommodating us.

We would come back for sure!

We had a great stay in Casa 579. The area is lovely, definitely a lot more character here than staying in ipanema etc, it is also safe! The rooms are large and facilities good and the staff are super helpful.

It is a little outside of Santa Teresa howerver the minivan service stops at the front door and is really frequent and cheap, it takes you into Santa Teresa or the city very easily.

We spent four nights here and found the staff very helpful, the views of the city and Christ the Redeemer fantastic, and the breakfast (especially the cake) wonderful. If we return to Rio, this is where we'll stay.
