João and his family are very nice and welcoming and made us feel it home. The hostel is located in a completely different neighbourhood of Rio, no so far from the beach and a lush nature! The house is really incredible, fully equipped and with a nice pool. The tasks were easy and not so demanding, and moreover, we could work with improving the website and the strategy. We would have appreciated a bit more of organisation and communication (we have no doubts that this will improve) . We definitely recommend to volunteer with Joao!

It’s been an amazing experience. It got us to know a part of Rio that we wouldn’t have met otherwise, and we learnt how to move through the city. Also, the host family is lovely and very collaborative. We felt as a little part of the family, and I really look forward to meet them again some day. As of the place, it is very confortable, as much the house as the neighbourhood: sociable people, cheerful about foreigners, great food, an amazing sightseeing and a lot of activities. All I have for this trip is good words: I met great people, cool places and I accomplished its purpose.
