Mi primera experiencia fue realmente increíble, no solo disfruté del encanto de la ciudad en Río sino que además gane una familia maravillosa en Maraca Hostel, los anfitriones siempre amable y buena onda, el corazón es Michelle una persona buena y que te guiará con paciencia, valoran tu esfuerzo, son respetuosos, y el hostel tiene una piscina linda, las playas no están tan lejos ya que con el metro puedes estar a 5 o 7 minutos de ellas, y tienes a shopping a unas pocas cuadras.
