I applied for a month and in the end I stayed almost 3 months! An incredible place, the people who run the hostel are very close and empathetic and they helped me when I needed it. The other volunteers created a perfect environment to make me feel like at home. The two buildings are impeccable and full of a positive vibe. Super recommended!!!! ❤
I opted for Walk on the beach because of the location and the hours (it's 4 hours less than most of the hostels in Rio).
The hostel is comfortable and there's another one of the same owners nearby so there's always a lot of guests and volunteers to talk to, the training and reception work is light and since the beach is so close you can enjoy even your work days.
