No lo recomiendo para nada, mal ambiente de trabajo, sólo estuve dos días, echaba a los voluntarios y hasta a los propios huéspedes por dejar sucio un baño. Se trabaja más horas y dias de lo acordado.

Fazer parte da equipe do Santa Hospedagem, como minha primeira experiência no Worldpackers, superou minhas expectativas! O Paulo e todos os colegas voluntários estavam sempre dispostos a ajudar e tirar dúvidas sobre qualquer tarefa, e não demorou pra eu me sentir em família. Uma pena que não tive mais tempo! Aprendi um pouco de tudo sobre o funcionamento de um hostel, e na certa vou levar pra sempre esse aprendizado e as boas memórias que construí no SH.

About the host

Santa Hospedagem is located in the heart of Rio de Janeiro old town - at the neighborhood of Santa Teresa! It's a beautiful hostel that contrasts the rustic - the old with the new - the modern. It's a familiar vibe and atmosphere, and its a different kind of hostel but our team it's the real reason fo our guests' satisfaction! It'll be a pleasure to have you volunteering here, with us! Share our passion, smile and empathy!!!
