    Description

    We are hostel located in Vila do Abraão, Ilha Grande, a beautiful island in between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. We also have another hostel in Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro where you are invited to spend a few nights. We provide free transfer to/from Rio de Janeiro or Paraty, tours that the staff can sell and get comission and food to cook.

    Recently we opened a part of the hostel with only 11 beds but we are working on the reformation and building a bambu structure to increase the size of the hostel which we hope to complete by december
    We need volunteers to work taking care of the guests, maintaning the open house with cleaning and gardening responsabilities. But also we look for someone with a bit of experience in construction to help with the reform.
    The house has a lot of trees, camp fire, internet access and is close to all restaurants, bars and supermarkets. From the vilage of Abraão there many trails for hiking to amazing hidden beaches around the island.
