Something not right?

Description

Noisy by the road but bearable given the good central location. It quietened down at night (a bit :-) ) Near to beach, metro, shops, restaurants etc. Initially he tried to tell us we were too big (we are 6.6 x 3.3 x 2.2m) but we pointed out larger (Braz reg'd) campers were already in there, so he let us in. Despite peak season weekend near Carnival, it wasn't busy. No facilities, so you need to be self-sufficient here. We managed to empty our toilet canister at the toilets for the beach 200m away (out the gate, turn right then right again down path to underpass to beach). Security seems reasonable; good fence all around and a guy in the entry/pay hut, but people could still walk in off the street if they were sneaky. Nevertheless, the area feels safe and we saw plenty of police around, so we had no worries. Price is listed as 30R per day. Turns out he wanted 60R per day because we (allegedly!) had to pay 30R per night too. We were probably ripped-off, but we still think it's not too bad a price given the central location of a major city ( its still far less than we had to pay in Buenos Aires!!!)

Latest Check-Ins

Carpark without height restriction. They ask for 100br a day but negotiable. Road noise but ok.

Dry camping, spent 15 days during Carnaval. 24 hour attendant, gates closed at night. Convenient to beach, restaurant, metro, busses, etc. No facilities but rest rooms at coffee shops and KFC on Catete street. I paid 30 Reales per 24 hour period. When my batteries got low they let me plug into power at night to charge. They take credit or debit cards.

We stayed here for 7 days and 6 nights with out incident. Lots of road noise, but ear plugs do the trick. Only a couple blocks from the Largo do Machado subway station. The price is still 30 per day and we were not charged to pay for the night like the previous people. Probably helps that we were here in off season. They close the gates around 10pm.
