gratitude to Paula to take me on board. I have now an idea how a hostel works: positive learning experience. I got sick few days and I was a bit of in pain during some shifts, I've worked anyway but I ended up leaving few days earlier...

all the best and high vibe from myself.. ;)

My experience at KAZA Rio was very good. The staff was great! I stayed less than I expected but I recommend 100% this Hostel. Paula is a great host, thanks.

My first experience as Worldpacker could not have been better! Paula is a wonderful person always willing to help and teach as many times as necessary. The hostel is located in a quiet non-touristic neighborhood 35 minutes from the nearest beach, but without any doubt that was never a problem, the subway is half a block away and it 's perfect to move everywhere. Kaza Rio really transmits the energy of home, where the smell of morning coffee always wakes you up with a smile. I recommend 100% this hostel where I enjoyed Rio in a way I will never forget.
