Really! When we made our reservation online, I wasn't much of a believer. Everything was too clean, to direct, to simple and we didn't know if the price was going to pay off.
Casa 579 was exactly as published online, they really know what a tourist needs to hear. They're recommendations were so accurate we didn't waste a minute in Río.

It's far away from downtown, that's true, but it's so easy to get there if you follow their guidelines. The only thing they're missing is to provide you with a cell phone to check on you every 2 hours, it's like they're always taking care of you.

An example to follow for tourist services providers!

Upon arriving to Casa 579 we were welcomed like old friends. The owner is amazing, as are the incredibile views from the hostel windows and roof terrace. Breakfast is fab and the big kitchen has lots of communal items you can use if you want to cook, otherwise we were recommended a great little restaurant 2 mins walk up the road with the most incredible views over Rio. The common areas were great and the hostel gave daily recommendations of activities in Rio. Its not quite as close to the beach as other hostels but it´s only a bus ride away and a brief walk into Santa Teresa, which is a really amazing place to go and have a few drinks in the evening. If I went back to Rio I´d definitely stay here again. Thanks for making us feel so welcome and at home!

We love to hear people say that they felt Casa 579 was their home away from home as this is the vibe we try to create for everyone who stays here. We're so glad that you both felt at home here and that you enjoyed our breakfast and Gaucho's, our great local restaurant right on the corner, and being able to use our lovely, big kitchen. We really appreciate your positive feedback and hope that anyone who reads your review and comes to stay with us will also feel at home.
If you ever do come back to Rio we'd love to have you here again and we hope you find some other great places to stay on your future travels!
With love from Rio,
Kiri, Natalia and the team at Casa 579.

This hostel has been the best we have stayed at yet. The staff make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in. Kiri was awesome! As were all of the rest of the team. They have the a breakfast every morning that is out of this world! Also, it is in a great, safe location. Don't let me forget...an incredible view! I hope to return soon!

It was also our pleasure having you and your friends here. Thanks for the great review. We're glad you enjoyed breakfast and the views, don't forget to have a coffee and try another awesome breakfast at Jacks in Cusco when you get there and we'd love to have you back again anytime you can make it.
Safe travels and thanks again.

An amazing hostel in the lovely Santa Teresa!

The area is calm and well located to enjoy Rio. The house is really pleasant and well decorated with a huge living room and a big kitchen, the terrace is fantastic with an amazing view on Rio, favellas, the Sugar Loaf and the famous Christ.

Breakfasts are awesome, and so is the staff ! They are all welcoming, very nice and helpfull, with a ton of tips about Rio.

Our stay here was a delight!
