I had a wonderful stay working in Bamboo Hostel, i made good friends and i could know better the city of Rio de Janeiro, the hostel is well located and the tasks for volunteer are well organized, the breakfast is really good, i recommend it.

Maybe wasn't the best experience in terms of volunteering, be a Worldpaker means exchang skills for an accommodation, during high season we had some problems with that, but we fixed it;
As well I think they should be a little bit more flexible with volunteers hours, just giving some extra days off or a free extra hours when they don't needs us, to let us visiting and join better the city;
But afterwards the time spent there was incredibly amazing , I met extraordinary people, we had such a great time as a team.
THANKS everyone! owners, managers, staff & WP!
ALL OF U ARE JUST AMAZING

Bamboo Rio Hostel is a very good hostel in Rio: it's clean, close to the beach, in a very nice neighborhood, it offers a lot of services!
I spent there one month and I really loved all the other wp (volunteers). We create a wanderful friendship and I'm sure we'll see again!
The only bad thing of these hostel was the organization of the owners and of the manager. They don't explain very well what you have to do, but they pretend more than it. Sometimes it seemed like we were really workers with a salary, not just volunteers. The working environment was a little bit heavy and difficult.

It was a great experience for me. The purpose of my trip was to meet people from all around the world and learn portuguese language. So Bamboo was the perfect place to stay, it's a really nice hostel, clean and organized, with a beautiful bar where all the guests get together having a good time, drinking beers and the best caipirinhas that Fred and Luisa made. But the most important thing that bamboo has is its staff, they make me feel at home and they help me a lot to learn portuguese.

The 3 weeks I spent at Bamboo Rio were amazing, the staff were always friendly, caring and super chilled out. My tasks as a Barman were really easy and enjoyable plus I got the chance to make a lot of new friends and to go out almost every night with them. Since this was my first trip as a Worldpacker I wanted to visit another parts of Brazil apart of Rio de Janeiro and unfortunately I had to leave 3 days before I was supposed to. You get to save a lot of money at the clubs just by being part of the staff of the hostel. Also the staff of BEM Brasil is completely made up of legends! I loved it!
