O The Search é um lugar único.
Os anfitriões Marcos e Marcelo são pessoas sensacionais, flexíveis e estão dispostos a ajudar em tudo o que for necessário. A equipe de staff também é incomparável, todos se ajudam, mesmo fora dos turnos.
A rotina de trabalho no The Search é muito tranquila e você consegue curtir bastante o lugar.
Recomendo 100%, parabéns Marcos e Marcelo por esse trabalho incrível!

It’s a great hostel with lots of opportunities to learn and practice all sorts of sports. The staff and guests blend together quite nicely and it feels like a family.
The shared amenities are really comfortable and give me what I need to energize and refresh myself day after day. The tasks are as announced on Worldpackers and the schedule is adequately flexible so as to allow us to enjoy the city, the hostel activities and still have enough time for ourselves.
I surely recommend everyone to live the Worldpacker experience at least once in their lives. Thanks for the opportunity.

Galera muito gente boa, flexíveis para horários. Precisei ficar mais que combinado e foi deboa. Recomendo a experiência. O hostel é muito bonito e as praias da cidade então nem se fala. Voltaria com certeza!

O The Search House Buzios é sem sombra de dúvida o melhor hostel que já conheci. O anfitriões são super bacanas, e os voluntários são incríveis, amei conhecer cada um. As tarefas são super tranquilas na maioria dos dias e quando o bicho pega todo mundo se ajuda. Infelizmente não pude ficar o tempo necessário, devido imprevistos indesejáveis. Espero um dia poder voltar. Gratidão Marcos e Marcelo!
