The hostel has everything that you might need regarding the facilities. Thanks to my experience now I understand real good português and I got the opportunity to immerse myself in the local culture. During carnaval It was a party inside the hostel but during the non-carnaval period, the hostel is very quiet and most of the guest are people who are spending their night there either for work or studies. We had BBQ every two weeks and the manager is a very nice guy.

Se a gente fica com dor no coração de partir, é porque a experiência valeu a pena! O hostel já começa sendo muito bem localizado, entre voluntários e hóspedes fiz amigos que vou levar pra vida toda, o thiago e a duda são sempre muito solícitos e sempre dispostos a tirar nossas dúvidas e resolver os problemas a QUALQUER hora, o trabalho é tranquilo e os horários são flexíveis. só não se diverte quem não consegue socializar, aí eu não indico voluntariado em nenhum hostel (: Saio feliz e esperando que possa voltar muitas vezes e ver o hostel cada dia mais fortalecido! gratidão por tudo, galera ♥

Fue mi primer experiencia como voluntario y fue mejor de lo que esperaba.
El grupo de voluntarios fue variando a medida que pasaban las semanas pero siempre se mantuvo la unión y buena onda con los pibes y las pibas.
Thiago los fines de semana no tiene problema de hacer un churrasco para todos y no te pide q pongas ni un centavo. Nunca me falto la comida ni nada de lo acordado. Además me entendió algunos errores q tuve en la recepción respecto a dinero y nunca me pidió que lo ponga de mi bolsillo.

A experiência pode ser definida como um pouco desapontadora. O local tinha tudo para ser melhor porém, por motivos de mau gerenciamento, se tornou muito desgastante mental e fisicamente. O hostel é bem localizado no Rio de Janeiro, mas a ausência de um gerente no local faz dele um ambiente desorganizado e, a depender dos voluntários do momento, de difícil convívio.Os voluntários têm que tomar frente de diversas situações que ocorrem todos os dias e, em razão disso, surgem alguns desentendimentos com o anfitrião. Além disso, é possível que a escala de trabalho seja de até 10h seguidas.
