My name is Isabella, I have been living in South America for the last 7 years, 4 of them in a little paradise close (2,5hs) to Rio de Janeiro. BUZIOS!
After working as a tour guide and English teacher I found a perfect house to open up a hostel. Now it's open for 3 years. This is a cool beach hostel, only 100 meters from Geriba beach - centre of surf culture and one of the most beautiful spots on the peninsula with 23 different beaches. Geriba is the meeting point of the young crowd, many water sport events take place here -there is always something going on.
Here we are an international team. Jonatan and Dimas, 2 guys from Argentina, are currently working there, really nice people. Saionara is doing the rooms and is the main responsible for keeping everything clean.
Do you have at least 4 weeks time and want to be part of the team? - then write a message :)
Help around the house
Volunteering in a hostel you can learn many things. About yourself, about communication, about people and cultures. You can improve your language skills and make new friends from all over the world. Be part of an international team and understand how a hostel is funcioning, plus you will get a chance to explore this beautiful area
Do you want to help us in the hostel? We are looking for pro-active people with a smile on their face :) We offer breakfast and a bed in a 2-bed-room (perhaps there is another co-worker, perhaps not) in exchange for 5hs doing things in and around the house and guest relations.
Simple house work and cleaning(!!) is what is to do most, organizing the laundry and the kitchen, doing check-in/-out, put music,... there is a cleaning lady to clean the rooms and bathrooms, still though it happens that one has to clean a room or bathroom, thats part of the help, too...
2-bed-room (shared with co-worker if there is one)
Brigitte Bardot made Buzios famous in South America and around the world - it has so many things to offer! There are not only beaches to surf, or great places to snorkel and to do all different kinds of water sports. There are also many possibilities of socializing, many bars and a lot of nightlife. There are trails to hike from beach to beach, or take a taxi boat if you want. The most important thing is... to be happy :)
