Foi uma experiência muito boa, para mim foi um tempo bom, conheci pessoas incrivéis que levarei para vida toda. O serviço é super tranquilo mesmo se o hostel estiver lotado, é um ambiente relaxante de muito boa vibe. O Thiago e o Luiz são pessoas solícitas, amavéis e educadas o que permite ficar bem a vontade. Recomendo muito. Além de estar super bem localizado no centro histórico. Valeu!

Uma incrível experiência no Hostel Varanda. Os staffs Luís e Thiago são comprometidos com o propósito de gerenciamento e acompanhamento do hostel, para oferecer o melhor para os hóspedes. O hostel tem uma qualidade impecável e sua localidade não tem pra ninguém, recomendo. Grato pela experiência e amizades conquistadas nesse período!

Para uma 1ª experiência como voluntária eu não poderia ter sido melhor recepcionada do que pela galera do Varanda Hostel.
Os anfitriões Thiago e Luiz são bem responsáveis e montam escalas justas, dando chance de todo mundo explorar a cidade.
As meninas do staff são pessoas muito fáceis de lidar e a localização do hostel chega a dar vontade de só ficar na sacada observando a rua principal de Ouro Preto.
Gratidão

Minha experiência no Varanda Hostel foi tão especial que acabei prolongando minha estadia.
Luis e Thiago estão sempre por perto acompanhando as atividades do hostel, atentos aos detalhes para proporcionar aos hóspedes uma ótima estadia e tbm se importam com os voluntários, sempre buscando ajudar no q for possível.
Me senti em casa, de fato.
O staff tbm é fantástico, na verdade fiz grandes amizades que vou levar pela vida a fora.
O hostel fica numa área excelente, rua plana (umas das poucas, rs...) onde tem tudo que se precisa é muito próximo de vários pontos turísticos. Recomendo!

A clesia é uma otima pessoa, e nos ajudou bastante com a sua simpatia, a sua organização e a sua pró atividade.
Nossas portas estão abertas sempre para ela.

Aaaah, o Varanda Hostel é demaaaais, super bem localizado, próximo de tudo. O Thiago é super gente fina, sempre preocupado se o packer tá precisando de algo, as horas de trabalho são super tranquilas, dando espaço pra conhecer a cidade. O staff MARAVILHOSO, o Luiz, a Lídia e a Tainara são excepcionais, te ajudam no que precisar. SUPER RECOMENDO!
