I am very thankful to Renata and her team at Manaira-hostel for a great volunteering experience...I felt very welcome = like at home there...everyone was really helpful and supportive... I totally appreciate the trust, what I got from Renata = owner of the hostel - even with my very basic Portuguese... I had a great time (which includes comfortable accommodation, good breakfast and amazing complimentary sunset-trip, ) and I learnt a lot there...if your are looking for the unforgettable positive volunteering experience, Manaira - hostel is the right place, where you get it:-)

Manaíra Hostel foi LUXOOO... nossa eu estou indo embora já querendo voltar! Renata é uma anfitriã muito boa e que eu acho que merece mais apoio dos voluntários. Minha avaliação vai ser direcionada aos próximos voluntários: sejam mais pró ativos , colaborem mais, tenham bom sens, respeitem o espaço do outro e as diferenças, não podemos perder esse anfitriã!Manaíra Hostel merece mais da nossa comunidade. E todos merecem a oportunidade de ter essa experiência em João Pessoa. Que cidade maravilhosa! JAMPA....Já estou planejando voltar! Muito obrigada por me receber Renata, Fabinho e Miriam.

Minha experiência no Manaíra Hostel foi fantástica, incrível!!! Difícil descrever isso com apenas 600 caracteres, mas, vamos lá! A conclusão a que cheguei, inicialmente, tem por base a anfitriã, Renata, preocupada constantemente com o bem-estar dos voluntários e dos hóspedes. Pessoa dedicada, atenciosa, muito responsável e humana, por quem tenho um carinho enorme. As tarefas, a carga horária e as folgas estão de acordo com o publicado. Conheci pessoas extraordinárias, fiz amizades que, com certeza, levarei para vida . Por fim, devo destacar a cidade de João Pessoa: limpa, bonita e acolhedora.

Foi uma experiência muito rica e compensadora. Cada segundo valeu a pena, a equipe é fantástica, o local é incrivel, a dinâmica e organização do local é maravilhosa. Gostei demais de fazer parte do grupo e ajudar no dia-dia. Me identifiquei muito com todos os elementos presentes no hostel, como o espírito coletivo e a relação hospede-voluntario. Está decidido que gostaria muito de continuar no WorldPackers. Essa experiência é transformadora, libertária, construtiva.
