Pura Vida Hostel was my first experience as a worldpacker and it was just beyond great. From the start they made me a part of their family. I've got plenty of good memories from this place and I am more than thankful with Felipe, Dalton, the guys from reception and the whole staff.
The tasks were easy and i had lot of time to get to know the place and the favela culture.(mindblowing btw) I totally recommend it.
Thanks to you, once more, and Pura vida!

My experience at Pura Vida Hostel was really good. All the worldpackers I met there made me feel as I had a little new family in Rio.
The hostel is beautiful, next to the Copacabana beach and very close to Ipanema Beach as well. It was my first experience as a worldpacker and for sure I did not regret it.

Thanks Pura vida Hostel

Minha experiencia no Pura Vida não poderia ser melhor. A vibe de lá é muito boa,as pessoas sempre atenciosas e abertas para conversar. Há diversão todos os dias no bar do deck e nas festas parceiras do hostel. A localização é ótima ,super perto das praia de Copacabana e Ipanema. Sentirei saudades do casarão. Um grande abraço a toda equipe e aos outros worldpackers que alegraram mais minha estadia por lá. Até breve Pura Vida! :)
