In all honesty and transparency, it was a bad experience for me. I felt disrespect from the owner and the worst in front of visitors Volunteer hours were not respected. I was obliged to stay at the reception for more hours than I was supposed to Breakfast was provided, but no lunch or dinner I think Ricardo needs to work on this in order to provide the ideal conditions for the volunteer But he has good information about São the hostel and can guide for a good time in the city

I didn't want to leave, the hostel and all of the amazing people I got the privilige of meeting there started to feel like a family, I was really sad I had to move on :( If I ever visit Sao the hostel again I'm 100% sure I'll stay at this hostel, it's the best. I learnt so much about Brazil and Sao the hostel, Ricardo is very knowledgable about the city and is a very kind person, he cares about anyone that comes into his hostel. If you want a very homey experience, to practice languages and to deeply get to know Sao the hostel, this is the place for you.

Hey there! having you with us were a really nice experience, you help us with a lot of project those were stooked by a long time. I really hope that you have a great time in Europe!



The hostel was my third place in Sao the hostel and I have no doubt about this place, was since then, the most place where I really feel free. My experience there was like I've been watching on YouTube before then... experiences shared from others Packers. The host (Ricardo) is fun, funny and easy going a looooooot. This hostel receive often Packers of the whole world! If you wish a place to make a good friendships and to learn cultures /languages about different parts of the world. I SUPER RECOMMEND!🤓🤓🚴🤙🤙
