I got this hostel because I wanted to wake up with the view I saw in the picture and It was even better then what I imagine.. It was fun, calm with worm hosting and beautiful like I wanted to be.
The staff helps and kind, the area is not in the middle but that what makes it special, Santa Teresa is beautiful and there are enough buses to get anywhere in the city though.
This hostel is expiring!

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights at Casa 579. We were impressed by the welcoming atmosphere of the house, its location and the incredible views of the city.

The room was spacious and clean, wi-fi was reasonably strong throughout the house and breakfast was great. The house is quiet and relaxing away from the city centre, however there is a bus stop close by with regular busses that run to the city. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to reach the city and the subway system.

English was the first language for many of the staff members who were happy to provide information about the sites and sounds of Rio.

We would happily stay here again and would recommend it other travellers. Although open and friendly, I would recommend finding alternative accommodation if you want more of a party atmosphere. Casa 579 lives up to its name as a home.

Room was clean and comfortable. Friendly informative staff. Stunning views over Rio from our balcony- from Christ Redeemer all the way to Sugarloaf mountain.
Downside was that the shower was often luke warm as opposed to hot.

Many thanks for the time taken to leave a review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the stunning view from our terrace and that our staff were able to help you. We are sorry to hear that you experienced some problems with the water and do wish you'd said something at the time as all our hot water is gas and as such can be as hot as you'd like it as long as you turn the hot tap on first and then add in the cold once the hot is already on. We encourage all future guests to please let us know if you have any problems during your stay as soon as possible as then we can fix them for you.
Thanks again for your feedback.
Safe and happy future travels!

I stayed here with 2 friends in a triple room for 4 nights. After spending the day in the madness of Rio, this was the perfect place to come back to. True, it is slightly out of the centre of the city, but with a combination of the right buses and taxis we didn't find it trouble at all. Very helpful staff, who happily helped us sort of the rest of our trip in Brazil.

Many thanks for the time taken to write a review, great to hear that you enjoyed the amazing view from our terrace and your overall stay. Unfortunately the laundry service we use only washes bed linen, they don't accept individual items of clothes so we are not able to offer that service but we have a great laundromat close by in Largo do Machado that offers a same day service.
Thanks again for both the review and for choosing Casa 579.
All the best for safe and enjoyable future travels!

We really enjoyed our stay here, we arrived really early morning and were offered coffee and they got our room ready quicker so we could get in. For our first stay we had a private room with a shared bathroom which was very clean and rooms were cleaned every day. The breakfast had a good choice and the monkeys at the window were welcome visitors. The staff are a great asset to the hostel and very helpful in giving directions, ordering taxis, booking trips. The one negative we felt was the location, it is a bit out of the way and you need to use public transport (which is cheap) or a taxi to get to most places. However, the area around the hostel feels very safe and the views from the roof terrace are phenomenal. The whole atmosphere of the hostel is relaxed and friendly and not a big party place.

We'd like to thank you for your stay with us and for taking the time to leave such a positive review. We ask guests in advance what time they are going to arrive to try and plan our day in such a way that wherever possible people arriving early like yourselves can get into their rooms quicker and of course at the very least have fresh tea and coffee and cold water awaiting you. We'd love to say that we also arranged the monkeys for you but that's more the Tijuca National forest than us doing the work!

We'd like to confirm that Santa Teresa is a very safe and relaxed suburb but also state that we do have great transport links to all parts of the city with 3 different buses that come past the top of our road every 5 - 10 minutes.

We're glad that you enjoyed the view from our terrace and the atmosphere here, we try hard to make everyone feel at home at Casa 579. Thanks again for your review. We wish you the best in all your future travels!

Warmest regards from Rio,

Kiri, Natalia and the whole team at Casa 579.
