Pura Vida Hostel, mi Hogar en Rio de Janeiro.
Desde el momento en que llegue al Hostel, no me imaginé que encontraría una familia. Tanto Felipe como Dalton, sus dueños, son excelentes personas que me hicieron sentir como parte del Staff y parte de la familia Pura Vida inmediatamente.
El personal, mis compañeros de trabajo, son geniales,siempre dispuestos a ayudarme, y así fue que aprendí a realizar taras como la de bartender, guia de tourismo y recepcionistas,actividades que jamas había realizado en mi vida.
Amé mi experiencia en Pura vida Hostel.
Gracias por todo.

Pura Vida Hostel was my first experience out of my country, an actually I could not have asked for more, The tasks are right distributed , organized and friendly, the location has its pros and cons, It is extremely close of the beach, like 3 minute away walking, the Owners are amazing and they don't make you feel overwhelmed.

I really recommend Pura Vida Hostel for any New Traveler who wants to stay a time in RIO DE JANEIRO.

Thanks So Much Dalton and Felipe.

About the host

Pura Vida Hostel is the only hostel in Rio de Janeiro with the charm of a medieval castle. We are located in the best spot of Rio, only one block from Copacabana beach, about 15 min walk to Arpoador and Ipanema beach, and a 2 min walk to the public transportation of your choosing (bus or metro). Here we do everything with Pura Vida flare and that includes our parties, always frequented by Cariocas looking for a fun time with live music, D...
