I just can say thank you for everything! Life changing experience, friends for the rest of my life <3




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.




Por causa da situação que estamos vivendo com relação ao Covid-19 a minha estadia na Hospedaria Rio que seria de 15 dias acbou tendo que ser reduzida em 3 dias. Durante os 3 dias que fiquei na Hospedaria eu fui super bem tratada, a equipe maravilhosa me acolheram super bem. Espero poder voltar em breve e viver de verdade essa esperiência.




La experiencia en Hospedaria fue muy bella, el equipo nos recibió y nos trató muy bien, respetuosos, una casa acogedora, un ambiente tranquilo y armonioso, realmente te sientes como en casa. Las tareas y carga horaria súper leve, me permitió salir bastante a conocer la ciudad. Una pena que con lo que está sucediendo ahora se están cerrando los hostel y mi experiencia tuvo que acabar pero cuando todo recomience súper recomiendo esta casa. El equipo supo muy bien contenernos cuando comenzó todo y tuvieron que cerrar. Buenas personas. Gracias por la experiencia.
