The Experience

It is not just the most beautiful city in the Planet. In Rio you have a lot of fun with the free events and parties. You will stay close to Copacabana beach, but leaving in a authentic neighborhood called Botafogo. And, of course, I will be here to show you the Carioca way of life :)

Not quite a party hostel itself, but the host and staff make the vibe just as vibrant! Everyone's always talking to each other, sharing ideas and experiences, making plans, the hostel really tries to make volunteers and guests experiences memorable. Carlos is really nice!

The staff and guests made my stage unforgettable! Parties everyday, beach, hiking, trips...

The WP's that I met in Samba Green became my little family and some of the guests became my friends! I'm pretty sure we'll meet us in the future everywhere in the world!

Thanks to Verity, Charlie, Janna, Anthony, Jordan, Johannes, Marcus, Leo, Flo, Félix, Gabrielle, Trish, Fernanda, Laura, Mary, Luke, Matheus...and all the people that makes me enjoy my first WP experience!

What can I say? This family hostel is incredible. I love the vibe... the work is not hard. It was my first WP experience and I highly recommend this to people who likes to chill and have fun with new people everyday. I made many friends in my time here. Some of them were exceptional. Thank you Carlos for the chance of be part of your staff. Just stop doubting and click apply. :D

Carlos created something great in samba green, something that you won't experience in any other place. Stuff and Carlos are basically like a family always there to help :). Hostel has everything that backpacker needs. This was one of the best experience in my life.
