Live on top of Leme and the middle of nature

The Exchange

We need a traveler with good energy, who wants to know a different and special side of Ri ode Janeiro. We have an eco-inn and restaurant at the top of the pacified Favela Babylon. Here we are 6 years old and we have transformed a space where it used to be a dump and today is Estrelas Da Babilonia. Our project requires a waiter who loves to serve people well, to help us take care of our natural and ecological environment.
