The Experience

We need a handyman or handywoman to help us with minor fixes and repairs. Repais and fixes have to occour during weekdays in the afternoons, so it is still possible to sleep in and have fun at night. You have to have a minimum idea of how to do simple repairs and paintjobs. For most part it is maintainance on an everyday basis. Weekends off!

My time at Walk On The Beach Hostel was amazing. It felt like a family and everyone was super friendly from the other volunteers to the owners. The work was really good and I enjoyed interacting with the guests. Would recommend this place to everyone.

I applied for a month and in the end I stayed almost 3 months! An incredible place, the people who run the hostel are very close and empathetic and they helped me when I needed it. The other volunteers created a perfect environment to make me feel like at home. The two buildings are impeccable and full of a positive vibe. Super recommended!!!! ❤

Very good experience the owners and the manager are very good person and with the other volunteers is like a family. The hostels are in copacabana 2 blocks from the beach, it s a very good place for party and for work.

I opted for Walk on the beach because of the location and the hours (it's 4 hours less than most of the hostels in Rio).

The hostel is comfortable and there's another one of the same owners nearby so there's always a lot of guests and volunteers to talk to, the training and reception work is light and since the beach is so close you can enjoy even your work days.
