The team at Maracana Hostel are very nice and friendly. I stayed 2 weeks and chose to have the night shift which was pretty quiet and there's always someone to help you out in case needed. I had my days off as agreed beforehand. It's near the Maracana Stadium and you have the supermarkets close by. It's mostly quiet, generally clean but needs some renovation. They turn on the AC together with the fan all night in the dorm so bring some warm stuff in case you get cold plus some repellent and detergent to wash your clothes. Im very thankful for the opportunity for having stayed with them!

Eu adorei a experiência no Hostel. O trabalho foi tranquilo. Bruno e Heloá sempre preocupados com o meu conforto. Damião e Dona Sônia são duas pessoas excelentes, que fazia meu dia mais divertido e me ensinaram muitas coisas, as melhores pessoas do Hostel. Excelente experiência! Obrigada pela oportunidade

Superando minhas expectativas, o voluntáriado foi excelente. Bruno e Helloá são super atenciosos e disponíveis para solucionar qualquer problema e/ou esclarecer quaisquer dúvidas. O ambiente é calmo, limpo e confortavél, graças ao trabalho dos gentis funcionários e voluntários, em especial Dona Sonião e Damião. Super recomendo!

Minha primeira experiência com a Worldpackers não poderia ter sido melhor, ao colocar minha mochila nas costas, decidi viver histórias incríveis, com pessoas incríveis e em lugares incríveis. No Maracanã Hostel encontrei tudo isso! Foram dias de muito aprendizado e diversão na cidade Maravilhosa! Conheci uma galera muito dahora, gente do Brasil e do mundo! Obrigado, Bruno, Helloá e toda equipe por me receberem bem e dividirem comigo boas memórias!
