The Experience

We have a beautiful place close to the beach. We need a creative person with cool ideas to enhance the natural beauty of the gardens and make the atmosphere and the rooms more comfortable for our guests while adding some nice decorative touches. Do you have the gift, my friend?

Mi experiencia fue muy buena dado que pude trabajar con total libertad en cuanto a la realización de fotografías del lugar y de las inmediaciones. La cercanía con la playa y las facilidades que ofrece a los amantes del surf, hacen del Hereda Surf Hostel un espacio privilegiado para la práctica de este deporte. El alquiler de tablas, bicicletas y las aulas con un campeón como lo es Angelo Hereda, y la colaboración de su esposa Simone hacen que uno se sienta en familia. Sus hijos Natam y Teo son encantadores y colaboran en la alegría del día a día, con una verdadera pasión por el surf . Gracias

A família Hereda é sensacional, e aqui foi uma das minhas melhores experiencias sem duvidas, o trabalho é leve e os horários são flexíveis, pude aprender um pouco sobre o surf, e pude desfrutar de momentos maravilhosos no mar andando de stand up ou aprendendo a surfar. Esta localizada a alguns passos da praia da macumba, lugar tranquilo e seguro. Gostei muito, indico a todos worldpackers. :)

Excelent people, Angelo y Simone have two beautiful kids who are always around and all the family is so nice!. They always give you a hand, support and total confidence in your job.
Recreio is safer and more local than the popular rio center, the best for who is looking for tranquility , peace and beautiful beaches to walk around and ride so many kilometers . Not so many backpackers , but full of surf people.
Pretty grateful for the time lived here, grateful for the good enviroment, hospitality and all the facilities received.
Thanks!! And wish u the best

I didn't spend the time I was suppose to at this place.
But anyways, it's a beautiful house right front of the beach. With people from different countries! A great place to meet new people and learn from other cultures.
I would recommend it !

About the host

We are a hostel for sea and sports lovers! We are a family of surfers who love what we do. Here we work, we surf, we live and have fun! The best things about our hostel are the friends that we make, the beach (and good waves) just few steps from us, the hammock, the BBQ, the pool, fruits in our garden and beers in our bar. Leaving the gate, the bus stop is across the street to take us to any place in Rio de Janeiro and, very close, i...
