You want to come to Rio to train BJJ, but you need somewhere to stay. Connection Rio is a company that provides accommodation for travellers in Rio de Janeiro. But our focus is on jiu-jitsu, so everyone who stays with us is here to enjoy jiu-jitsu in Rio.
Staying in a hotel sounds like a good idea, but there’s nowhere to wash or dry your kimonos and you’ll need to spend a lot of money in the expensive ‘lavandarias’, laundromats that charge by the kilo (and dirty kimonos are heavy). Plus, you’ll be forced to always eat out, which can drastically increase your budget.
Renting an apartment sounds like a good idea, but there is no guarantee your booking is legit. Scams are not common but do happen, and people have found upon arriving in Rio that their deposit has vanished and the apartment never existed. At least when you go through a reputable company like Connection Rio, with hundreds of satisfied guests, you know you’ll be looked after.
We provide a choice of options for your stay, including private rooms and dorm-style shared accommodation. Prices are available upon request, and we’ll help you choose the option that best suits your budget.
Whatever your budget, we’ve got something to suit you. All our houses have kitchens, regular maid service, high-speed wifi and self-service laundry facilities.
Connection Rio hostels are perfect for the jiu-jitsu minded traveller.
From training and accommodation to academy visits and special tours, and even small group classes with the best teachers Rio has to offer, Connection Rio offers everything you need for the perfect jiu-jitsu holiday!
