This was an amazing experience to learn about the hostel Community! I broke some paradigms about Favelas and really enjoy the environment of a hostel in Rio! I would repeat this experience for sure and thanks to Joao that is an amazing leader! Thanks 😊

This was my first Worldpackers experience. I wasn't really sure what to expect staying in a favela or volunteering. It turned out to be a positive experience for me. The place was stunning well organized well kept. I don't think you'll get a better view in Rio for the price. Great people great vibes great place.

Muito obrigado pela sua ajuda, foi um prazer recebê-lo em nosso Hostel!!



Minha experiência no hostel está sendo incrível. Vivenciando novas pessoas, energias e conhecendo mais sobre a cultura local. Uma experiência inesquecível ✨

Foi uma experiência linda estar no Rio de Janeiro, porque tive todo o suporte do hostel. O gerente João é um amor de pessoa, me acolheu super bem. O dono Eduardo, mesmo não estando no hostel o mês que eu passei, mantinha contato pra saber o que eu estava achando e se eu precisava de algo. Fiz muitas amizades, e me apaixonei por vários cantos do rj, principalmente o hostel.

As pessoas e os voluntários são incríveis . Vale muito conhecer o hostel, tive apenas um problema com o anfitrião João que teve uma atitude muito radical em me dispensar sem querer dialogar . Reconheço meu erro, porém é aprendizado para ambas partes .
