      The staff were very friendly and helpful. The house was largely occupied by Brazilians with only a handful of travelers staying there. Most of them were planning on staying for over a week. I only stayed there a night. The focus on community and house morale was obvious and welcoming.

      The only thing I didn't like was the late hours that everyone kept. Since I was traveling on a schedule and didn't have much time to sleep, the time I had to sleep was important to me. The noise from the usual social hours didn't keep me up too much though.

      The staff was very helpful (thanks, Binho). They make us feel comfortable, as if we were at home. The toilets and bathrooms are usually clean. A ambientação do lugar é bonita, artística, muito inspiradora e convidativa à leitura e convivência entre os hóspedes.

      There isn't a proper place for having breakfast, I mean, there aren't enough chairs for everybody depending on the time.
