I had the best time in Rio de Janeiro working as worldpacker in Pura Vida Hostel, i made good friends, enjoyed the wonderful city and the nature around. The hostel is very near to the beach of Copacabana and i you get benefits as worldpackers like tours, free entrance to some bars and clubs, bikes and more, the tasks for worldpackers are very well organized, i highly recommend it.
Pura Vida is the best hostel in Rio! I had SO much fun there, I’ll never forget the experiences I had and the people I met. The team is awesome and it seems more like a family than anything else. The hours and tasks are fair and you have plenty of time to enjoy all Rio has to offer. It’s true about free surfboards, free bicycles, free tours and free parties (w/ free drinks 😜). The owners (Felipe and Dalton) make their best to create a cool and fun atmosphere- thanks guys for being awesome! The location is just perfect, you have everything around.. TNX PV, I’ll be back soon ♥️
O Pura Vida é sinônimo de " sua casa ". Pensa em um ugar em que você se sinta em casa, com pessoas alegres e com astral, esse é o ambiente do Pura Vida. Felipe é um anfitrião excelente, trata todos como se fossem uma grande família. Ele é flexível e divide as tarefas, de forma que nao saia pesado para ninguém. Esse hostel só agrega experiências boas em nossas vidas, desde o meu primeiro dia eu consegui perceber que dali eu ia levar uma bagagem de experiências para casa. Obrigada Felipe, Pura Vida e todos os Worldpackes e hóspedes que ali passaram. Até breve!
Pura Vida Hostel is the only hostel in Rio de Janeiro with the charm of a medieval castle. We are located in the best spot of Rio, only one block from Copacabana beach, about 15 min walk to Arpoador and Ipanema beach, and a 2 min walk to the public transportation of your choosing (bus or metro). Here we do everything with Pura Vida flare and that includes our parties, always frequented by Cariocas looking for a fun time with live music, D...About the host
