Trams, buses and vans stop just at the top of the street (Costa Bastos), about 30m away from our door.
Tram: from Carioca station, take the tram for 'Paula Matos'
Bus: from Rua da Carioca in the centre, or Avenida Gomes Freire in Lapa, take the 214 bus
Van: from Gloria metro, walk 50m along the road towards Lapa and take the van marked 'Santa Teresa'
Taxis from the international airport (R$45*) or bus station (R$15*): to get these prices, make them use the meter by taking a taxi dropping someone off at the departures section and tell the driver to enter Santa Teresa by Rua Paula Matos. At the top you reach Largo das Neves, where the tram tracks start. Follow them 50m: we're the first road on the left.
