My experience in Adios Amigos was incredible. I changed myself many times in a short period. Everybody there have a kind heart and it made me enjoy every second. It is near the beach, in a beautiful place. The work is honest and flexible. I am so glad that I lived this experience! Thank you, Adios Amigos!

I really loved my experience at Adios Amigos Hostel! Gabi, Conrado, Rafael and Thiago (owners of the hostel) are amazing, admiring and loving people. I have never been treated so well while volunteering! The tasks are well devided so the work you do isn't that hard and hours are very flexible. You have all the time in the world to go and enjoy the city, beach,.. anything you like! I also met amazing people that were also working as a volunteer. They, together with the owners, made my stay in the hostel a wonderful experience that I will cherish forever. Obrigada! Um grande abraço e muito amor!

Adios Amigos was my first Worldpackers experience and I could not describe it as anything other than enriching and delightful. This place is a true fount of great energies that attract people from all over the world and make them feel right at the home. It is a niche for the travel community that those that find it might not want to leave. Arraial d’Ajuda is a magical town where you breath joy and peace of mind, and Adios Amigo is a mirror of its charm. I could not have asked for a better place to volunteer, or a better group of hosts to call my students and friends.

Experiência incrível! Trabalho tranquilo com horários flexíveis. A Gabi, o Rapha e todos voluntários são pessoas maravilhosas. Me senti realmente em casa. Sem falar no café da manhã divino e completo.
Com certeza quero voltar para viver mais desse paraíso nesse lugar tão acolhedor. Obrigada a todos.
