It was my first experience as a volunteer and i couldn't expect more. Everything was very nice. I felt at home with all these nice people (workers and guests) Bruna, Ivan and Erika makes everything to welcome you the best way possible and they're awesome. Unfortunately my skills in portuguese are at the moment not so good but i had no problem to communicate with other people. Thanks to everybody who helped me live the best first volunteer experience. See you soon ! :-)

A experiência de morar no Rio com certeza se tornou ainda mais especial vivendo no hostel. Localização maravilhosa, perto de museus, parques, festas, praia e com uma estação de metrô há 5min. O espaço e a vibe são muito agradáveis , com um staff maravilhoso e super unido, me senti acolhida e em casa! Pude praticar muuuito meu espanhol, porque o staff é formado em maioria por falantes nativos; e a experiência em recepção me ensinou muito! O Ivan é um anfitrião super gente boa e está sempre presente e disponível! Agradeço e indico muito o hostel!

Cosas que me gustaron de mi estadía: - Iván a es calido, relajado y comprensivo. - tener 30 reales por semana para consumir snacks y otros productos. - las fiestas gratis Cosas a mejorar: - la habitación de los voluntarios y los colchones está en condiciones muy precarias, se debería poner en condiciones - respectar lo acuerdos de trabajo y horarios pre establecidos - el desayuno ofrecido es solo café, sería lindo que ofrezcan algo más completo En mi experiencia personal, sentí que lo que yo estaba ofreciendo no estaba en concordancia con lo que se me ofrecía a cambio.

A experiência no hostel foi boa demais! A galera que recebe o voluntário e os hóspedes é gente boa, muito amigáveis e da para fazer amizade com o hostel inteiro. Agradeço a oportunidade que a Bruna e o Ivan me deram, e a responsabilidade e amabilidade com que dirigem o local. Da para ver que o hostel é bom porque todo hóspede que fica lá, quer voltar e volta para curtir suas férias com a equipe. Só uma pequena recomendação para próximas experiências, seria bom melhorar as instalações para os voluntários e que fiquem como os quartos dos hóspedes. O resto da experiência, incrível

Estoy muy agradecida con Bruna, quien desde antes de llegar al hostel me orientó en todo sentido, todo el tiempo fue muy amable y me ayudó muchísimo, son muy comprensivos con los horarios y los ajustaron cómo los necesitaba. Las fiestas de Barco y las noches de farra en Lapa son de lo mejor y todo es ¡gratis! disfrute mucho de RJ porque su ubicación es muy estratégica, siento que fui muy afortunada en ser recibida en este lugar, las instalaciones son muy hermosas.
