"Ficar no Favela Experience vai muito além de uma hospedagem em um hostel. É conhecer a cultura local, entender a realidade das pessoas que moram na favela, é entender que nem sempre o que está na mídia condiz com a realidade."

Bruna Amaral

"Local limpo, organizado, com um bom café da manhã, seguro, os funcionários são educados e muito prestativos. Vale a pena passar uma temporada por lá, vivenciando ou observando como é a vida numa favela pacificada. A vista é maravilhosa, a comunidade acolhedora, a experiência é incrível, e fará com que vejam o mundo de uma maneira diferente. Super recomendo!!!!"

Sandro F

"Sem palavras para descrever os poucos e intensos dias que passei no Hostel. O Rodrigo é super receptivo, não só ele como todos que trabalham no Hostel."

Lima Mayara

"Com ótima localização, que oferece uma das mais bonitas vistas do Rio, fui muito bem recepcionado, equipe muito competente e solicita. Todos muito bem informados e entrosados afim de deixar o ambiente descontraído, proporcionando encontros prazerosos entre culturas diferentes, sem que vc perceba essa diferença.
Estarei de volta com absoluta certeza."
