"A great community for solo travelers "
There’s a very warm and welcoming feeling at the hostel. I was taken well care of and everyone seemed friendly. The schedule is very flexible and therefore gives you the opportunity to plan other trips during the stay, if that’s what you want. I found that the WiFi worked perfectly and that the location was just 3 minutes from the beach. The beach is beautiful. Overall this was the perfect beginning on my trip as a solo traveler

"Persona maravillosa "
I was staying in Rio and looking for a spot to learn how to surf, luckily I came across Rio Surf n Stay and made the great choice of booking lessons there. My instructor, Vitor, was a great dude who got me riding waves on my first day! Its hard to put it all into words, but basically the vibes at Rio Surf n Stay are amazing. The instructors are amazing, loved that I pick this place to learn how to surf and will definitely come back!

All staff treated us like family from the very first moment with a free barbecue, surf lessons were cool, instructors are very good and knowledgeable. The owner and management were always around to help. Bed room and bathroom are nice and clean. Meditation and yoga was new for me, but it fits perfectly at this location. Special thanks to Betania for making our stay nothing but perfect.
I arrived on April because I wanted to surf and living in Rio city, you don´t have waves everyday. So I decide it to come to Recreio and discovered this amazing place: a professional surf school, people from all over the world totally crazy about surfing, all the comfort and feeling of a house (a brazilian-kiwi surfer couple created the hostel 10 years ago) , a natural environment and close to the best surfer spots of Rio de Janeiro: Macumba, Prainha, Grumarí. So I became the yoga instructor of the hostel! Just perfect. They have a program to support people that want to surf & work. So if u have the chance to visit this place, want to surf, chill, meet awesome people and do some yoga, just go there. You will fall in love with Rio Surf n Stay!

Great surfing lessons! You can try different waves every day and different boards. The teachers are really there for you to correct your mistakes. I have been there for a week and learned a lot.

Surf N Stay is the best surfing hostel I have ever been to. The people are so nice, and the surfing instructors are absolutely brilliant. If you want to go surfing, chill, do some yoga, and get new friends, this retreat is definitely the best place you will ever find!
