Flavia and staff are great and very friendly and knowledgeable, and can make you feel welcome in Rio easily.

Nice rooms, good view, good wifi and other facilities and great and extensive breakfast. Nicely situated between Santa Teteaa and Lapa. I even had the luck to get upgraded immediately.. Will come back here for sure.

Great location, lovely rooms, and a nice little garden with a stunning view over the city. The best about this B&B is, however, the wonderful staff helping you in any way to make the best out of your stay in Rio. Thank you a lot, Rafael and Laura!

I stayed in Casa da Gente for about a week and I had a good stay there. The place itself is very conveniently located, nicely decorated and it really feels like a home. Breakfast is very nice and the restrooms were clean. Perhaps best of all was the host, Laura, who was very hospitable and had a lot of good advice.

Basically everything is there to make your stay there totally worth your while and it's good value for money but there's two things you might want to take into account when booking a room there: 1) the beds are not built for above average height people such as me. They fixed this problem immediately (upgraded to another room) but worth noting. 2) The place is close to Lapa, the party district, so on Fri- and Saturdays I would suggest you either go out partying there or take one of the rooms that are not on the city center side because of the noise.

We stayed 3 nights at Casa da Gente. Room was perfect with great view and nice hamac. There was fresh filtered water brought in the room everyday and available in the kitchen (which we haven't gotten anywhere else around Rio). Location is great, right next to the famous stairs connecting Lapa/Santa Teresa. Hosts are awesome and take a lot of their time helping you out logistically and are always avaialble by phone (through their free local phone - we did have to test it and they picked up instantly even if late night). Breakfast was fine, very traditional Brazilian (except no Tapioca which is avaialble in higher scale pousadas). Only thing they could improve is the shared bathroom, but it wasn't an issue per se.
