The environment in the the hostel was just great, my bosses and the staff were really kind with me, they help me a lot especially on my first days in Rio de Janeiro, taking into account that I did not speak Portuguese when I arrived; John (member of the staff) he took the time to teach me.
The work schedules were fair and gave me the possibility to work a full shift (8 hrs at day) to earn some extra money..
the work environment in the hostel was so good that it was not strange to do BBQ between the staff and the guests ..
I would fully recommend the hostel to any traveler Also the city of

A Agustina é uma gerente super flexível e gente boa. A argentina mais brasileira que já conheci. hahaha Me dei muito bem com a maioria das pessoas da equipe. A hostel têm uma estrutura excelente, mas não é um hostel muito turístico, então a maioria dos hóspedes que vão pra lá estão no Rio de Janeiro à trabalho ou estudo, o que muda um pouco o espírito "hostel". No geral foi uma experiência muito válida.

The experience in THRJ was a challenge and good for me. Because living for more than 1 month in a shared room with 10 more people, working at night until morning, washing bathrooms, taking out the garbage, making the breakfeast for all the guests. In fact, that make me learned a lot for all these new tasks. Additional, I make unforgetable relationships with some members of the staff and guests. I would recommend THRJ for the location, friendships, free hots dogs every monday, brazilian bbq including drinks like fernet, beers and caipirinhas every friday. Grateful with my first volunteer.

Uma experiencia inesquecível , agustina que è a responsável por todo Staff è uma pessoa muito legal , incrível , uma amizade que vou levar pra vida toda, sempre estar disponível para tirar as duvidas de todo , foi um aprendizado incrível que vou levar para a vida , aprendi muito sobre recepção a fundo , nunca tinha trabalhado na área , o hostel e muito bem localizado , próximo ao parque lage , jardim botânico , lagoa rodrigo de Freitas e das praias da zona sul . falando sobre o staff da época , como todo lugar tem seus problemas , mas no geral foi positivo. super recomendo o The Hostel !

some("A experiência foi a melhor! Agustina e todo o hostel foram muito compreensíveis e com certeza aprendi muito! Deu tranquilamente para fazer minhas coisas fora e cumprir as horas de trabalho. São todos muito animados, todas as sextas fazem churrasco e sempre vão a festas. A localização é excelente! Amei! ❤️ ")
