The Experience

A small family hostel, very well located in João Pessoa coast (100m to the beach). 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 with reception and maybe other tasks. Note that we are engaged to support women on the road, travelling alone, by offering a safe place to stay long and selecting them in priority.

feel like in home, joão pessoa and slow hostel are very peaceful places, ideal for relaxing, and i'd love the instruments room on the hostel.

Slow foi simplesmente o melhor voluntariado que eu já passei!
Marina é uma das pessoas mais iluminadas que conheci nessa minha viagem… sempre disposta a conversar, ensinar, explicar… o lugar é lindo, a energia é fantástica, o slow da um gostinho de quero mais e eu quero mais, quero voltar e viver sempre próxima desse lugar ❤️

A minha primeira experiência com voluntariado pela plataforma não poderia ser melhor. Slow Hostel é administrado por pessoas gentis, competentes, inteligentes e cuidadosas. Marina é a melhor anfitriã. Dona Maria é ótima em tudo. Rosy ajudou em tudo desde o princípio. Novais também tá sempre pronto pra o que precisar. Danubia também é bem humorada e gente boa
As tarefas são simples e os horários são ótimos. O hostel mais organizado e agradável que se pode querer. Mil estrelas! Obrigado, Marina! Você é incrível, não tenho palavras pra descrever como me senti acolhido, respeitado. Grato por tudo.

O slow trouxe exatamente o que eu precisava: tranquilidade e desacelerar o meu ritmo. Consegui cuidar de mim mesmo e estar com pessoas muito especiais. O hostel é super bem localizado e da fácil acesso a todos os cantinhos da cidade. Agradecimentos especiais as pessoas que compõem a grande família dessa casa: Dona Maria, Marina, Rosy e Novais além de Caio e Gu, companheiros de voluntariado. Gratidão 🧡

Que experiência incrível! Criei grandes amizades e desde o primeiro momento, fui extremamente bem acolhido e já no início desenvolvi um sentimento de casa no Slow! A carga horária é super tranquila e flexível, dando pra aproveitar bem essa cidade maravilhosa que é JP. Estrutura do hostel excelente. Só tenho a agradecer a Marina, dona Maria, Novais, Rose, Danubia e toda a equipe por tudo que vivenciei esses dias por aqui! Criei um carinho enorme por essa família e não vejo a hora de voltar! Gratidão demais!
