I stayed at the home for 1 month and I really felt that it wasn't enough. I had such a great time engaging in various activities outside the home, but with other volunteers at the hostel as well. Management and other volunteers were all so fun to work with and I really enjoyed every moment of my stay there. I also made my first cake thanks to my fellow volunteers :D During my stay I had a few requests and Reynaldo and Rodrigo addressed them with understanding, and I am forever grateful to them for that. I am already planning to be back to Rio in February, see you there! ;)

Huge Obrigato to Reynaldo and Rodrigo to accept me in the home Family.the home was really different from other Worldpackers's place, all the learning, activities..events, I never imagine cooking for so many costumers, during xmas events. It's a family! they looked after you..I feel sad to leave because all the people in the house where I spent Christmas with. the home is challenging, inspirational, formative and intense. The worktime is very flexible and tasks easy to learn for beginners as well.. and Reynaldo is great. I have been so lucky! a must experience a big hug.. SAUDADE ..a lot.

Minha experiência na casa foi simplesmente incrível! Fui muito bem recebida, fiz muitas amizades, tanto com voluntários quanto hóspedes. a casa realmente é um ambiente que me possibilitou conhecer o Rio de Janeiro e conhecer várias pessoas. As atividades são bem divididas entre os turnos e os horários são respeitados. Todas as dúvidas que eu tinha nos primeiros dias eram respondidas, então foi uma experiência muito positiva para mim, Reynaldo e Ricardo foram muito prestativos nos momentos em que eu tive dúvidas, e os mesmos são muito abertos. Só tenho a agradecer por essa experiência! <3

Voluntariar na casa foi uma experiência incrível! Os anfitriões sempre estavam dispostos a ajudar e ouvir o que tinha que melhorar, fiz várias amizades e o horário era bom, pude conhecer o Rio de Janeiro inteiro! Algumas coisas poderiam melhorar, como quando a moça da limpeza ficou de licença, consequentemente ficou muito pesado para nós voluntários, já que era bem a época do ano novo. Fora esses detalhes foi maravilhoso, aprendi muito!

A casa é um lugar muito tranquilo e com a vibe muito boa, fica bem localizada, próximo a estação de metrô/mercado/farmácia. Você consegue conciliar trabalho e lazer, as tarefas são tranquilas de serem realizadas e a escala é feita com antecedência. Não tive muito contato com os anfitriões, mas são pessoas acolhedoras e de fácil comunicação. As trocas foram justas e enriquecedoras.
