The experience of receiving immigrants, in the late nineteenth century, was an experience shared by American countries. Similar apparatus have been created to deal with the massive displacement of the Old Continent. Knowing the hostels of immigrants in its universality and its specificities is a way to understand how each of the societies established their relations with foreigners. This paper aims to analyze the creation of the hostel for immigrants of Flowers´ Island, which ran between 1883 and 1966, located in Rio de Janeiro. We seek to understand how the demands and ongoing experiences shaped the institution.

Keywords : immigration; hostel for immigrants; Rio de Janeiro.
