Hospedaria Rio is an awesome hostel to work at. Everyone is willing to help and collaborate whenever its necessary and that creates a really nice atmosphere where you never feel alone or overwhelmed. Working hours are more than fair, you have plenty of time to enjoy the city and wonders or Rio. Localization is also perfect, just two blocks from the subway station. Duties and tasks are not hard and hosts try to make you feel comfortable about the schedule and work. Hosts, staff and volunteers made my stay in Rio unforgettable! I would definitely recommend working here. Obrigada por tudo! :)

I didn't come there cuz they said to wait some confirmation, and in the end I didn't receive some answer.

A Hospedaria Rio é muito bem localizada (próximo do metrô, dos bares e do shopping). Também os espaços do Hostel são amplos. O Hostel é seguro e a portaria é bem cuidada. Os responsáveis orientam com relação as tarefas. A escala é cumprida e, no momento, o turno varia. A Thais me passou dicas de hotelaria e o Fábio conhecimento de como funcionam os bairros do Rio e os principais pontos de acordo com os interesses, perfil. Agradeço a atenção.
