My home in Rio, I feel lucky to be part of the home. It's a small family here...from the first day I felt as one of them. Really friendly and helpfull volunteers. Ready to help for any questions. Tasks are just liked mentioned and easy to do. I loved my stay and extended.

I stayed at the home for 1 month and I really felt that it wasn't enough. I had such a great time engaging in various activities outside the home, but with other volunteers at the hostel as well. Management and other volunteers were all so fun to work with and I really enjoyed every moment of my stay there. I also made my first cake thanks to my fellow volunteers :D During my stay I had a few requests and Reynaldo and Rodrigo addressed them with understanding, and I am forever grateful to them for that. I am already planning to be back to Rio in February, see you there! ;)

Huge Obrigato to Reynaldo and Rodrigo to accept me in the home Family.the home was really different from other Worldpackers's place, all the learning, activities..events, I never imagine cooking for so many costumers, during xmas events. It's a family! they looked after you..I feel sad to leave because all the people in the house where I spent Christmas with. the home is challenging, inspirational, formative and intense. The worktime is very flexible and tasks easy to learn for beginners as well.. and Reynaldo is great. I have been so lucky! a must experience a big hug.. SAUDADE ..a lot.

Uma experiência sem outra igual, aprendi muito, me diverti muito e fui muito bem acolhido. Estou saindo daqui com o coração apertado, mas sabendo que o aprendizado aqui vai me acompanhar para o resto da minha vida, sem dizer as amizades e a família que estou deixando aqui no Rio e espalhada pelo mundo. Muito obrigado Reynaldo e Rodrigo pela oportunidade de fazer parte dessa família. Saio daqui sabendo que quando estiver no Rio terei uma casa para estar. Gratidão imensa, por tudo ❤️

Na casa aprendi a conviver verdadeiramente em coletivo, tive muito contato com outras línguas e afirmo: só não aprende quem não quer! a casa é um hostel bastante grande, então consequentemente tem uma demanda alta de trabalho, principalmente em altas temporadas. O ambiente é limpo, mas toda a coordenação do lugar depende quase 100% dos voluntários, então uma boa equipe faz total diferença, por mais que exista um ajudante de limpeza. Os anfitriões são receptivos e sempre levam em consideração nossos feedbacks, principalmente porque temos reuniões a cada 15 dias. Recomendo demais!
