The Experience

A small family hostel, very well located in João Pessoa coast (100m from the sea). Our house is a joyful, comfy and beautiful place where you can meet people from around the world and share experiences <3 We are glad to host creative volunteers who are up to help us out with reception and handcraft/ cultural tasks around.

Foi uma experiência maravilhosa. Foi acolhida com muita atenção e carinho e me senti em casa. Marina, Dona Maria, Marily, Rafael e Sarah estarão para sempre no meu coração. Me diverti, conheci vários lugares. Marina parecia uma amiga de longa data, podia passar horas conversando com ela, muita sintonia. e uma pessoa muito justa, sincera e muito aberta. com um coração enorme. Compartilha seus conhecimento com alegria. O trabalho é super tranquilo e proporciona tempo para conhecer a região e todos dão muitas dicas. Tive otimas experiências em João Pessoa, contato com pessoas e cultur da região

Slow Hostel é realmente o que eu esperava. Você se sente em casa, super bem acolhido e querido assim como acontece com todos que aqui ficam. Tarefas bem delegadas e organizadas, sem muito segredo quando se tem atenção no que deve ser desempenhado. Marina é um amor de pessoa e um poço de cultura; ficou em dúvida do que fazer ou para onde ir em uma terça-feira a tarde? Ela sempre lhe dará uma rica indicação (: Dona Maria sempre com uma boa energia e surpreendendo no café da manhã. Toda a equipe está de parabéns. Fico feliz por ter tido a oportunidade de conhecer João Pessoa através desse hostel!
