Probably I would say that it was the best experience I´ve ever had in my entire life. I had the honor to be part of the best staff ever. Even working we had so much fun with Gabriel (owner) and meeting new people from all over the globe is one of the greatest experience anyone can have. You will learn so many good things in many different ways and will carry this package for life. Of course, to be in Buzios which is so beautiful means a good city/trip to add to your life. So many beautiful beaches, landscape, sunsets, parties and a lot more. If I´d be back? Obviously, just tell me when!




It was a great experience. Raul its a lovely person, Gabriel and Miguel were very kind and courteous. The hostel is amazing and really close to the beach.




Great and cozy hostel to stay, the environment is really nice! The work in the morning is simple and fast, so there is plenty of time to enjoy the beaches. Raul, who we work with in the mornings, is the best staff ever, warm and sweet person! I'll miss my time there!




It was my first experience as a worldpacker and it could not have been better. The environment of the hostel, the people, the city, everything was just perfect. I got to know people from all around the globe, practice my English and I actually stayed more than planned just like everybody else who arrived at YOLO hostel while I was there, because it really feels like home. Thank you so much for the everything, I’m going to miss Buzios forever!




It is difficult describe this amazing experience in few words.
Gabriel, Miguel and Raul are very kind and warm "boss", they treat you as part of the family and don't pretend anything.
The hostel has swimming pool, bar, Xbox, TV, lounge rooms, laundry and what you need to live there. Tasks are not difficult and they ask to you to work just 4/5 hours for day.

Buzios is stunning. Go there and live it.

I definitively would like to come back.
