My experience at La Gloria Beach Hostel was Wonderful. It was my 5th volunteering job/experience and I could say the best of all of them. Joara e Amaury, the owners, are great people and they became like family. Is hard to say goodbye when you get to love the people. Also the hostel has a beautiful view of the hill and Atlantic Forest and pretty near to the most beautiful beaches and waterfalls. The hostel is all good vibes. You feel enchanted on Ilhabela with so many outdoor things to do. I made not only friends at La Gloria, but a family ♥ Thanks Jo and Amaury from my heart!! You're awesome.

It is a place that you feel welcomed. The hosts really put their work and love into their business and tend to be fair with everyone.
It is a nice place to stay and there are lovely beaches around and waterfalls - just beware the borrachudos! So use repel cream.



Não tenho nem palavras para descrever! O hostel é uma gracinha, a Jo e o Amauri são muito cuidadosos tanto com o ambiente quanto com os packers! Tudo muito organizado, limpo, decorado.. 😍 As escalas de trabalho são muito bem divididas e enviadas com antecedência, o que é bom pra programar outras atividades fora as de trabalho. Amei demais e criei um carinho mesmo, tanto pelo hostel em si quanto pela familia! Gratidão é o que define, por tudooo!

te amamos !!!!


A minha experiência no hostel tem sido maravilhosa, os donos são maravilhosos e muito atenciosos e o espaço é muito aconchegante.
Fiz uma solicitação para mim e meu namorado e eles aceitaram direto os dois.
Jo e Amauri são pessoas maravilhosas e muito gentis e Pietro que é o filho do casal é uma criança muito carinhosa e inteligente.
Recomendamos para quem quiser ter uma experiência maravilhosa em Ilhabela.



Sempre ser grata! E eu sou grata demais por minha trajetória me levar para o La Gloria. O Amauri e Jo são pessoas simplesmente maravilhosas. Amauri com seu jeito todo engraçadão e a Jo com seu grande coração bondoso trazem leveza e conforto para o Hostel. Logo, você se sente em casa e parte da familia. IlhaBela é um paraíso, e a localização do Hostel não poderia ser melhor, perto das melhores praias, de trilhas e cachoeiras. Não pense duas vezes antes de aplicar pro La Gloria. Vou embora com meu coração leve e cheio de gratidão pelo privilégio de ficar nesse lugar.
