Pura Vida Hostel

Pura Vida Hostel is the only hostel in Rio de Janeiro with the charm of a medieval castle.
We are located in the best spot of Rio, only one block from Copacabana beach, about 15 min walk to Arpoador and Ipanema beach, and a 2 min walk to the public transportation of your choosing (bus or metro).
Here we do everything with Pura Vida flare and that includes our parties, always frequented by Cariocas looking for a fun time with live music, DJs, and good people.

Built in the beginning of the last century as the Polish embassy of Brazil, the house of Pura Vida Hostel preserved its initial architecture, which is rarely seen nowadays. The castle-like house was influenced by designs that hold a classic sense of European beauty and decor. With stained glass windows, chandeliers, and amazing woodwork, the house is a fascinating fusion of Art Nouveau style and medieval European construction. These are just some of the details that make Pura Vida Hostel the only one of its kind in the state of Rio de Janeiro! The last highlight of our beautiful house is our ‘Taverna’, the medieval bar of Pura Vida Hostel. The ‘ragers’ we hold at the Taverna are always frequented by Cariocas (Brazilians born and raised in Rio de Janeiro), other out-of-state Brasilians, and tourists from all over the world. Our parties feature the best Carioca DJs Rio de Janeiro has to offer as well as live rock, jazz, samba, and cultural shows. The space of the Taverna has also been used in various films (including a film on famous Brazilian singer Tim Maia) music videos, private parties, and even weddings. ‘Pura Vida’ embodies fun and our ‘party house’ is already recognized as one of the best nightlife options in Rio de Janeiro as highlighted by numerous popular newspapers and magazines like ‘O Globo e O Dia’ and ‘Veja e Época’! Pura Vida is a greeting of good energy. Just like the expressions: tudo bem, aloha, carpe diem, and tamu junto, the expression Pura Vida conveys a sense of well-being, happiness, and enjoyment! All of this is the style of Pura Vida Hostel. Come live the Pura Vida experience as a Worldpacker here!

I had an absolutely amazing time volunteering at Pura Vida! Rio is a big and crazy city and volunteering at Pura Vida allowed me a great opportunity to navigate the city with other travelers and with some locals as well! The hostel itself has a great energy to it and there are always fun activities to join in on! It was also in a great location just a couple of blocks from Copacabana beach. If you want to experience life in the big city and like to meet lots of new people, I would 100% recommend volunteering at Pura Vida!

Minha primeira experiência voluntariando foi maravilhosa e o Pura Vida foi a escolha certa para isso!
Nunca tinha trabalhado em um bar e a equipe foi muito paciente para me ensinar tudo. É um ótimo lugar para pessoas que desejam festas e socializar. Me senti muito acolhida por todos. Sou uma pessoa bastante tímida e esse lugar me ajudou muito a me soltar mais :)
A localização é boa, consegui aproveitar todos os dias de sol na praia.
Espero muito voltar algum dia para essa família!

Essa foi minha 9º experiência com a WP, e Voluntariar no Pura Vida pela segunda vez foi ainda mais emocionante que a primeira, por isso durou mais haha
Recepção, Entretenimento e Bar com certeza são as minhas top 3 posições que eu recomendaria.
Se vc quer se conectar com pessoas de outros países esse é seu lugar ideal, você encontrará de Nórdicos a Árabes e muitas outras nacionalidades.
Se vc quer festa, encontrou seu voluntariado perfeito, pois tínhamos festas gratis pra ir TODOS os dias (exceto domingo que é dia de missa) hahaha
Voltarei e recomendo

Mi estadía en pura vida fue realmente genial, conocí gente de todas partes del mundo tanto huéspedes como voluntarios y eso hizo que mejorara y aprendiera más otros idiomas como el portugués e inglés.
La vibra qué hay es demasiado buena, dentro y fuera del hostal, sin duda alguna lo recomiendo y volvería a estar ahí.

I just want to express how great of a time I had volunteering at Pura Vida Hostel. Definitely one of the best hostels I've volunteered at. Had such great times and great memories volunteering\working with the staff and other volunteer co-workers along with having fun with the traveling guests that come and go here at this hostel going out clubbing and other hostel activities. Just want to thank Felipe and Dalton, the owners of the hostel for choosing me to come and volunteer to share that vision of what Pura Vida Hostel is about. I'm definitely gonna miss this place and can't wait to come back
