I highly recommend staying with Tiago's family. I first stayed with them two years ago and this is my second stay, which I ended up extending. They are really nice people. The hostel has amazing views and spaces for hanging out. It's also very quiet most of the times. Sometimes a…

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing experience at Thiago's place. His mother greeted us and walked us to our stay. Thiago's entire family was incredibly sweet and open to us, and made us feel like we were friends of the family. Thiago even brought us out and invited us to his…

We had a great experience staying at Thiago's place. Its a bit of a steep climb to the building, but its well worth it for the amazing view of the shoreline and city below that you will have while eating breakfast. The room was simple but clean and Thiago and his family were very…

This is definitely the best view in Copacabana. The host family was very welcoming and were even nice enough to meet us earlier than expected. Walking up the hill from the beach felt very safe with families and kids playing...even later in the evening. This was one of the best…

This was our first airBnB experience and after a rough start, we were quite pleased with our stay at Thiago's. After travelling almost 30 hours we arrived at the favela by taxi, per Thiago's instructions, at the meeting point. It was dark and pouring rain. We tried to call f…

Response from Rufino:
Hi Tonya - I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us - we always want our guests to be happy here. Your check in was confused due to the heavy rain you mentioned, and although your foreign cel phone did not have reception - usually we have 100% network coverage here in Babilonia - upon your arrival you could have asked the driver I had pre arranged for your airport transfer for you to give us a call as instructed, (he is a family friend) - or indeed there is a pay phone by the drop off point which we had agreed. There is also a cafe and rain cover there, that is why it is the meeting point :o) Good luck with the rest of your travels in South America! I hope the language issues do not cause you too much trouble! you will be good at signing when you get home haha!! Best wishes, Thiago
