Review written by Emerson

The hostel's like an oasis in the middle of the lovely chaos of Istanbul! The hostel's new: a/c in all dorms, good vibe, 50% discount in drinks for the volunteers(!), free laundry service, kitchen, balcony, pool table.. Gigi (the host) is a nice guy, easy-going and a party animal when it's required! We went with the guests to nice places and we had fun every weekend! I stayed almost two months and I had a blast everyday: new people, the neighbourhood it's really local (alive and safe) also close by walking to the main spots) and the hostel is the coolest in town! I'll come back, I promise!

Review written by the host

Emerson spent almost a month at Pura Vida Hostel and was a very good addition to our team. He is very sociable and communicative, always with a smile. He also perfomed really well with all his tasks. We recommend him to any host that wants a positive and nice WP. Obrigado Emerson!

Review written by Emerson

The hostel is te best hostel in Rio de Janeiro! The best vibe I found on the city! I wanted to stay more because I had one of the best WP experiences in PV! Felipe (the owner) and the team they really take care about the WP's. They're always able to talk and they are always in a good mood. The staff is the best, I made such a good friends there and the guests had such a good energy, we go out everyday! You can work in your knowledge area so I could write articles and take pictures, also I did reception. I really enjoy! I will definitively come back again! Many thanks guys! the hostel!
