Otima experincia

Recomendo, mas acredito que deveria haver mais interação entre os donos e os hóspedes, que poderiam pensar em algo para que os hóspedes interajam entre si.

Fue una buena primera experiencia como worldpacker. conocí personas muy interesantes y divertidas en el hostel, con las cuales compartí hasta el ultimo minuto, agradecido de que me hicieron sentir a gusto en mi estancia en Rio . objetivamente pienso que un voluntario no debería trabajar mas de 24 horas a la semana y no mas de 7 horas continuas para poder tener una experiencia mucho mejor. Obrigado pela preferencia Rio Soul Hostel e espero poder voltar pra continuar compartilhando com voces otimos momentos.

This is a place where everything is streamlined and under control! Makes that there is a lot of time left to chill with staff and guests. I got a very warm welcome my first day by the managers, who have a nice informal style towards staff and volunteers. Right from the beginning I got quite some responsability, yet my tasks were always made managable. If you love hostel life but aren't the 24/7 party type, this is place is just well balanced. More, if you are looking for a friendly environment to get the hang of hostel reception work, start here! Really only good things to say, how boring! ;-)
