Good. Worth the trip. It was a good experience.

I discovered in Vidigal favela one of the most receptive and safe places in Rio de Janeiro. All the prejudice with the favela was eliminated, living in an incredible place.

The way the Favela Experience staff welcomed me was fantastic, and calling it "family" is no exaggeration after so many wonderful moments and experiences that I attended. Realizing that I was surrounded by so many people wanting to do good things, with real social impact and making every effort, made my whole experience incredible.

There is only one big risk in this whole experience: the risk of not wanting to leave.

The whole team at Favela Experience is just great and very easy going. I felt at home since day 1. I was supposed to stay for 1 month, but I will end up staying for 3 months (just because I already had confirmed another trip, otherwise I could stay more). Life at the favela is super easy and it actually feels safer than anywhere else in Rio. The staff's house is really comfortable and very well located. I definitely recommend this place and even if I still have 2 more months here, I already hope to come back soon.

Meu Anfitrião Adam é super comunicativo, inteligente e dedicado. Não aproveitei muito por problemas pessoais. Rodrigo é uma pessoa maravilhosa, todos super empenhados em ajudar também. Recomendo para quem gostaria de ter uma experiência na Favela vista sobre outros olhos. Vão amar a Dana (mascote do hostel). Obrigada por tudo Adam e perdoe meus devaneios.
