This place is super beautiful and located in a great place! There lots to do, great energy and vibe, guest and staff. If you're not speaking Portuguese sometimes can be difficult since most of the staff speaks only that, but it's also a great opportunity to learn
And also, it's all about the energy you bring and take!
The volunteer room are really small, and the shower pretty moldy but their working on another concept for the volunteers
Also Ricardo is welcome to receive any comments or requests, so ask or say what's on your mind there someone who listens 💪🏼

The place I love the most in Ilhabela! Ricardo is a great host and he also went with us to the beach to take part on the Beach Clean Up project.

Hostel da Vila is beautiful, there's a good bar to have some drinks, a big pool with a slider and the jungle surrounding is breathtaking. The staff is always in a good mood as well.

I'll come back as always I can.

The coolest hostel you'll ever meet <3
About Ilhabela: Safe/beautiful/expensive
My experience at Vila's:
Good part: Discount on unique accommodations/bar, free breakfast, veg lunch for R$8, cool events/parties, lot of guests from around the world, equipped rooms
Bad part: Kitchen isn't fully equipped, midias position wasn't really structured because of the communication between everyone involved and sometimes I stayed more than the agreed at the reception
Anyway, I recommend this volunteering A LOT!!! Tks so much, Ri and Vila! #sovai ⚡️💜 @caruviaja
