Here, in pura vida, was my first experience as a WP. It was amazing and totally recommended! I loved it, all the guys from the staff are great and they made me feel at home. My work at the reception was easy and funny, i could make lots of friends there and visit all the places that i wanted in Rio. I would like to spend more time there, it´s wonderful. I´ll definitely come back.
Thank you so much guys!!
See you soon
I loved the hostel it was easy to make good friends and feel like home with my coworkers you have the beach within a 3 minute walk, free entry to the best parties in Rio and the best location with a metro station just two blocks from the hostel. Working in breakfast was fun just a little bit of a hassle to wake up early but great since time flew by till noon and had all day to enjoy the city. The staff was great I apreciate the help everyone at the hostel gave to me cant say enough to apreciate my time here I would definetely work here again.
Pura Vida is te best hostel in Rio de Janeiro! The best vibe I found on the city! I wanted to stay more because I had one of the best WP experiences in PV!
Felipe (the owner) and the team they really take care about the WP's. They're always able to talk and they are always in a good mood. The staff is the best, I made such a good friends there and the guests had such a good energy, we go out everyday!
You can work in your knowledge area so I could write articles and take pictures, also I did reception. I really enjoy!
I will definitively come back again!
Many thanks guys!
