The Experience

Hi guys! We offer our beds and a great time at our hostel! We have a chill place with a pool area, a small bar and we need people who really like to work helping us keeping a good vibe at nights, making drinks or dinners (you can make with them) or staying in the afternoons to help with the check-ins and check-outs + help with cleaning when its necessary. We make "small" parties at nights with some drinking games and any new idea is welcome :)

Learning & Fun




I feel that I cannot give an accurate report of Farofa Loca as I left after 5 days due to the fact that I was not prepared to sleep in the bedroom provided (it was unfinished and therefore had various issues like leaks and damp). However, I can say that the hostel is lovely and so are the people working there. I had fun for the 5 days I was there and saw that the guests were enjoying themselves too. I'm sure the volunteer bedroom will turn out fine when the problems have been fixed! If you like beaches and parties Morro de São Paulo is the place to be ;)




This was my first experience as a volunteer and it couldn’t be better! Roberto and Ronnie are beautiful people who have created an amazing hostel for volunteers and guests to spend time together, having so much fun! Breakfast is supernice, pool is amazing, rooms are super and they have a nice hammockpart if you want to chill! Livia is supercool and even though I dont speak perfect portugese we got along superwell and she is very good in beerpong!!! The workingtime was perfect and if you like cooking you get to cook meals for everyone if you want for dinner:-)
Thank you for everything<3<3<3




I totally recommend The expérience as a volunteer At The Farofa hostel. The owners are really fun and they care a lot about you and The guests. They want to have a good vibe and they are interested in others. They explain you well what they want At The beginning and they give you space too to enrich The hostel as you can. Splendid Project!!!!! I wish you good luck guys!!!




Foram 15 dias maravilhosos no Farofa! Trabalho bem dividido com os voluntários e funcionários! comprometimento com as horas trabalhadas! Roberto e Roni os donos estão sempre por perto caso precise de algo, Dejaly e Lívia são umas ótimas anfitriã sempre explicam as tarefas com calma! e nao posso esquecer da Regina a moça do café que é um amooor de pessoa! o hostel é incrível, tem uma socialização muito boaaaa! foi inesquecível minha experiência com vocês a unica coisa que deixa a desejar é o quarto dos voluntários que pra mim é o ponto negativo dessa troca mais com os dias vc acaba acostumando




O Farofa não é só mais um Hostel, o Farofa é uma FAMILIA! Lá você encontra muito carinho, respeito, amor e diversão! A estrutura é otima e o clima é senpre de festa! INCRÍVEL!
