Hereda Surf Hostel

We are a hostel for sea and sports lovers! We are a family of surfers who love what we do. Here we work, we surf, we live and have fun! The best things about our hostel are the friends that we make, the beach (and good waves) just few steps from us, the hammock, the BBQ, the pool, fruits in our garden and beers in our bar. Leaving the gate, the bus stop is across the street to take us to any place in Rio de Janeiro and, very close, it´s possible to enjoy some of the best beaches in Rio. The house also has a surf school, with highly qualified professionals and all the necessary infrastructure for those who have never ventured into the sport. Those who are already sport lovers and just need a structure to practice or those who just want an accommodation close to the sea, also will feel at home.

We are a surf hostel that seeks to provide an experience that combines well-being with a simple lifestyle and accommodation with sports activities related to the sea. We would like that people who are here with us rediscover the value of simple things and good friends . And in our team, we want to awaken the desire to learn, grow and achieve a good quality of life. Our Values: Simplicity with quality | Commitment to what we do | Integrity | Respect for people and the environment | Teamwork for business sustainability | Challenge for new personal achievements.

Muy buena experiencia y hermoso lugar!




Mi primera experiencia como voluntariado, fue una experiencia fenomenal, si le agarras amor al hostal querrás ayudarlo en todo lo posible. Angelo es un antifonario muito legal, no estará encima tuyo exigiéndote los quehaceres, pero si lo haces mal no dudara en mencionártelo, es un lugar muy tranquiiilo, si sos un poco hiperactivo costara relajarte... siempre hay mucha libertad para ejercer tareas nuevas y tus ideas siempre se tendrán en cuenta! Ser observador y tener iniciativa es lo esencial.




Mi experiencia fue muy buena dado que pude trabajar con total libertad en cuanto a la realización de fotografías del lugar y de las inmediaciones. La cercanía con la playa y las facilidades que ofrece a los amantes del surf, hacen del Hereda Surf Hostel un espacio privilegiado para la práctica de este deporte. El alquiler de tablas, bicicletas y las aulas con un campeón como lo es Angelo Hereda, y la colaboración de su esposa Simone hacen que uno se sienta en familia. Sus hijos Natam y Teo son encantadores y colaboran en la alegría del día a día, con una verdadera pasión por el surf . Gracias




A família Hereda é sensacional, e aqui foi uma das minhas melhores experiencias sem duvidas, o trabalho é leve e os horários são flexíveis, pude aprender um pouco sobre o surf, e pude desfrutar de momentos maravilhosos no mar andando de stand up ou aprendendo a surfar. Esta localizada a alguns passos da praia da macumba, lugar tranquilo e seguro. Gostei muito, indico a todos worldpackers. :)




Excelent people, Angelo y Simone have two beautiful kids who are always around and all the family is so nice!. They always give you a hand, support and total confidence in your job.
Recreio is safer and more local than the popular rio center, the best for who is looking for tranquility , peace and beautiful beaches to walk around and ride so many kilometers . Not so many backpackers , but full of surf people.
Pretty grateful for the time lived here, grateful for the good enviroment, hospitality and all the facilities received.
Thanks!! And wish u the best


Perfect for you if you're looking for
