Pura Vida hostel fue una exlente experiencia durante el periodo que estuve aprendi, me diverti hice turismo y muchos amigos . La playa esta a solo dos cuadras de el hostel y los medios de transporte publico muy cerca . felipe y dalton son muy amistosos (al igual que el staff )y justos en sus labores como gerente estan siempre preocupados por hacer de el hostel el mejor. de verdad lo recomiendo mucho..
Pura vida Hostel, uma gran familia, conocí muy buenas personas, calidad humana, aprendí un montón sobre el funcionamiento de um Hostel. Un lugar que volvería siempre y recomiendo. Fue bueno para practicar idiomas, hacer amigos del mundo, creo que ayude junto al grupo de worldpackers a brindar uma excelentes vacaciones a más de um huésped. El equipo de trabajo muy bueno, los dueños excelentes personas, sobretodo Felipe qué fue com quien tuve más contacto. La verdad que em 4 años visitando Brasil pura vida fue la mejor experiencia. Espero um dia volver. Abrazo y éxitos
Son muchas las experiencias vividas, sin dudas es el mejor Hostel de Rio de Janeiro. Cuando llegué, lo primero que sentí es que estaba todo preparado para recibir Worldpakers, mucha responsabilidad y respeto para el trabajo. El ambiente es muy agradable y siempre abierto a nuevas experiencias y propuestas. El hostel tiene muchísimas comodidades y diversión. El grupo humano fue lo que mas disfruté. La mejor forma de recomendarlo es decir que volvería cada vez que regrese a Rio. Pura Vida es una gran familia que muda y crece todo el tiempo!!
I have no idea where to start as the experience was outrageous , not cool at all , not fun or learning .
I arrived very happy and nervous the first day ( I never been is a hostel before but I was mentally ready ) when I arrived to the reception I wasn’t welcome at all ( the owners were busy dealing with a robbery inside of the hostel ) . During my stay I met other WP but I shocked when I found out that they sell food and beach towel to survive in daily basis , is far from what I expected . 2 weeks before finishing the experience I was robbed inside of the room and I left as it was very bad
I don't think Luis was ready for a Hostel, an environment where you need to share everything with all kind of people.
No one should be shocked 'cause others sell food or towells at the beach. Thats life, some need that and some don't.
He also had problems with some (not only 1) other WPs.
Its true that when he got here we had just caught 2 guests stealing another guest and we turned them to the police.
We believe he should understand owners are not 100% of the time available, but we do our best!
He should have mentioned that after the problem was solved we went to talk to him as we do to all WPs.
Not only that, our reception staff welcomed him as soon as he got here, checked him in and guided him to his room.
Some days later he reported a charger, a sunglass case and an after shave were missing, but he was not sure if someone stole it.
He "thought" it was a guest, but he had no proof, he only said theis one guy had an "weird" look. ???
No other WP or guest reported any other missing item those days.
He also mentioned his lock wasnt closing his drawyer properly and we gave him a new one and moved him to a different room to avoid future missing items.
He was frustrated and decided to leave on the next day.
A few days after he left, other WPs mentioned he had found some of his stuff...
PS: It's important to mention that all rooms have electronic lock at door and guests and WPs are responsible for locking their stuff in their drawiers.
For privacy we don't have cameras inside rooms.
Minha primeira experiência como worldpacker não poderia ser melhor!! Passei dias incríveis no Hostel, muitas experiências, aprendizado, companheirismo e alegria. Proprietários incríveis, super gente boa, alegres e simpaticos. Wolrdpackers maravilhosos e com uma vibe incrível. Hostel lindíssimo com uma varanda e deck irados e com uma arquitetura de um castelo. Espaços comunitários bons e quartos espaçosos. Só peca um pouco na equipe dos funcionários fixos, que por vezes são um pouco rudes com hóspedes e WP e possuem uma mente fechada. No mais, adorei o tempo que estive aqui e voltarei sempre !!
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...About the host
