Having travelled for 2 months, my last 4 nights were spent in Rio and staying with Sid and Eliza in their home. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The guest house was on the boarder of Lapa and Santa Teresa and was a great location for going out in the evening, the owners were also incredibly helpful when explaining to me how to get anywhere else I wanted to visit helping me to navigate the buses and metro system.
As it was not peak season, I was the only person staying there, maybe off putting for some, but I prefer to party out of the hostel not in it, and I felt incredibly safe there & was able to leave my valuables in the room with no worry.
I also went on the Favela tour with Sid which I was a bit cautious of at first as it sounded a bit voyeuristic, but was actually really interesting and Sid's love and knowledge of the city is really clear to see.
The house itself is well decorated, the breakfast was good, the water warm (not hot, but it was hot in the City so I didn't mind) and to top it all off they have a gorgeous son who is as cute as a button! Highly recommend a stay here.
