Hacer ese voluntario fue súper tranquilo, el hostel está muy bien estructurado y tiene muchas actividades post voluntarias. Las tareas diarias son muy simples (siempre mantener el hostel y la piscina limpia en su turno de voluntario). El anfitrión es muy tranquilo, un abrazo Rolando y Rina! Quien pasa más las tareas es Rina. La carga horaria es exactamente como está aquí en el sitio (Punto positivo) y con dos dias libres en la semana. La playa está justo enfrente del hostel, más la piscina y las fiestas los sábados por la noche son increíbles. Recomiendo a todos los brasileños y viajeros.

Excelente. O hostel é bem estruturado e as horas de trabalho são tranquilas. O trabalho é de limpeza e recepção. Depois rola um almoço bem bacana para aproveitar as horas livres na praia que fica bem em frente. Rolando é um anfitrião tranquilo e buena onda. Assim como o pessoal que trabalha com ele. Jorge foi quem nos recebeu, foi muito simpático e solicito sempre que precisamos. Tiveram alguns pontos negativos, mas como não foi culpa do hostel, não irei mencionar aqui. No mais, foi uma boa experiência e uma troca justa. Abraços a Rolando e Jorge. Muchas gracias.
