O MELHOR HOSTEL DO RIO DE JANEIRO <3 Minha experiência no Pura Vida foi maravilhosa, lá você não viaja para o Rio de janeiro, você vive o Rio de janeiro. Os horários de trabalho e o trabalho em si é tranquilo, a localização é maravilhosa, perto de tudo, praia, metro, festas, mercado, farmácia e por ai vai. O hostel promove eventos e vários free tours, serio não pensem duas vezes apliquem <3 Aos anfitriões agradeço de coração, até a próxima família Pura Vida !!

Un grato ambiente de familia es el que se vive acá.
Siempre agradecida de haber llegado a este gran hogar.

Recomendo muito. O melhor hostel que já fiquei. Fiz Passeios com a equipe do hostel, fizemos festas muito legais, inclusive possui opções de segunda a segunda, Os donos são muito gente boa, viraram meus amigos mesmo! A galera é gente boa e de ótimo nível. Resumindo, nada que desabone. Tudo, absolutamente tudo é showzinhos e bola. Vai para o Rio? Não deixe de conhecer o hostel e o bar de jeito nenhum. Nota 10!!!
