I've stayed in many different hostels in Rio and the hostel is undoubtedly one of the best. The location is ideal, on the edge of a granite cliff in a quiet corner of central Copacabana. The bar/patio where I worked are even built into the natural landscape. It's really cool. The facility is well equipped for volunteers and travelers, everyday staff put a lot of attention into keeping things smooth. One of the main reasons i returned to this hostel after staying there as a guest is because of the atmosphere and people it draws, always positive, always energetic. and always good.Check it out!👍

The people were mostly very nice and accommodating. My only complaint was about the room provided for stay. Not very comfortable . As well, it would be nice if they helped to resolve issues and confusions related to the work.
