The hostel 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! :)

O hostel sem dúvidas é o hostel mais preparado para receber voluntários que já voluntariei. Localização perfeita, muito seguro e próximo aos pontos turísticos, metrô e praias. É oferecido um treinamento e a comunicação é clara em relação as tarefas. Horários são respeitados e turnos são tranquilos. Local tranquilo para trabalho remoto. Só tem voluntárias mulheres e todas são incríveis e muito receptivas, isso é um grande diferencial! Me sinto em casa. Com certeza recomendo muito! <3

Foi a melhor experiência que tive no Rj. o hostel me aceitou de braços abertos, foram super acolhedores, as tarefas e os horários são bem tranquilos… As meninas que trabalham lá, são nota 10. Café da manhã muito bem servido. Quarto dos voluntários é confortável.. Tem metrô ao lado, e a praia bem pertinho. Agradeço a toda equipe!! ♥️
