- About COVID-19
- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend you to stay informed about WHO's and local authorities' recommendations.
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 help 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 and helping with cleaning when its necessary. We make "small" parties at nights with some drinking games and any new idea is welcome :)Learn more

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!!!

Farofa é agito, diversão e trocas. O espaço é muito bem cuidado por uma equipe empenhada, os donos Roberto e Ronnie trazem diversão e aprendizados pra dentro do hostel. Tive tempos de pura diversão e amor dentro do farofa. Perfeito pra quem quer conhecer muita gente. O café da manhã é bem completo, o hostel é bem cuidado e muito bonito, o único ponto de melhoria é o quarto dos voluntários que por não ter muita ventilação acaba tendo bastante mofo.

Hostel muito gostoso de se estar, o hostel por si só já seleciona hóspedes legais e que gostam de se comunicar, trocar experiências, dar rolê junto, muito bom! Rony é mega paciente e educado e gosta das coisas certinhas! Responsabilidade é tudo! Roberto disponibiliza a escala de funções e horários, são tarefas tranquilas e em pouco tempo finaliza todas! Regina e Alcira são as mãezonas da casa e juntos um ajuda o outro nas coisas do dia dia. Cidade linda e cheia de coisas para fazer, pessoas com energia tão linda quanto e quando reparar, está morando no Morro faz 3 meses. Venham!
