Excelent people, Angelo y Simone have two beautiful kids who are always around and all the family is so nice!. They always give you a hand, support and total confidence in your job.
Recreio is safer and more local than the popular rio center, the best for who is looking for tranquility , peace and beautiful beaches to walk around and ride so many kilometers . Not so many backpackers , but full of surf people.
Pretty grateful for the time lived here, grateful for the good enviroment, hospitality and all the facilities received.
Thanks!! And wish u the best



I didn't spend the time I was suppose to at this place.
But anyways, it's a beautiful house right front of the beach. With people from different countries! A great place to meet new people and learn from other cultures.
I would recommend it !



everything ok!



Mi primera experiencia como voluntariado, fue una experiencia fenomenal, si le agarras amor al hostal querrás ayudarlo en todo lo posible. Angelo es un antifonario muito legal, no estará encima tuyo exigiéndote los quehaceres, pero si lo haces mal no dudara en mencionártelo, es un lugar muy tranquiiilo, si sos un poco hiperactivo costara relajarte... siempre hay mucha libertad para ejercer tareas nuevas y tus ideas siempre se tendrán en cuenta! Ser observador y tener iniciativa es lo esencial.



Mi experiencia fue muy buena dado que pude trabajar con total libertad en cuanto a la realización de fotografías del lugar y de las inmediaciones. La cercanía con la playa y las facilidades que ofrece a los amantes del surf, hacen del Hereda Surf Hostel un espacio privilegiado para la práctica de este deporte. El alquiler de tablas, bicicletas y las aulas con un campeón como lo es Angelo Hereda, y la colaboración de su esposa Simone hacen que uno se sienta en familia. Sus hijos Natam y Teo son encantadores y colaboran en la alegría del día a día, con una verdadera pasión por el surf . Gracias
