Ruthnora The rooms are clean, the showers are hot and the breakfast is delicious. But where Lagoa goes above and beyond even the most hopeful expectations is the friendliness and hospitality of the Brazilian owners Juliana and Wesley. They have offered tips on what to do in the area, have made suggestions for restaurants, guidance on using the buses, arranged laundry pick up, helped with international calls and even took the whole hostel for a night out in Lapa. We originally planned to stay for 3 nights, but between the wealth of things to do in and around Rio, and the fact that the Guest House now feels so much like home, we stayed for several weeks. If it is at all possible, we would strongly recommend attending one of their barbeques, or failing that, do make sure that time is set aside for a long chat in the evening. They are not like guest house hosts; it is more like they have invited you into their own home. They are certainly now great friends. Given that Lagoa is the standard by which all other Guest Houses and hostels will be measured during our travels (the bar now being so high), we would give Lagoa 100%.

nicholmarc Awesome location away from the big city which allows you to experience the real Brazil. You are made to feel as though it is your house. I went there with my partner, who doesnt surf and she loved it as much as me. If you want to relax and enjoy a cheaper, better option to Rio I would recommend you spend some time with Mauro and his family. You wont regret it. In a six week trek around Sth America, staying here was a highlight.
