Learning & Fun


It was an amazing experience, I've really loved the time i spent in Dom Preguiça Hostel. The owners, André and Guilherme, are great, I became part of the family and enjoied not just the working time but my free time as well, the hostel organize boat tours in the nature and the place is wonderful. I would go back now!



Don Preguiça is a nice place to stay. All the crew members are very easy-going and helpful, and will be glad to help you with anything you need - be it about your duties as a volunteer or about things you can do in Alter do Chão. André, one of the founders, is a very smart and calm guy, and he makes it even more pleasant to stay in Alter. He even took me and other guests to hang out in his Kombi and visit places nearby the hostel. We had one barbecue and a few happy hours as well, which was very fun. Great experience!



Mas una experiência increivel com worldpackers. Muito obrigada tango lore e André pela sua amabilidade e compartir seu cantinho comigo. O lugar é incrível, super recomendo.



O tempo que passei no Dom preguiça foi ótimo. Não consigo dizer nada de negativo. O André e a Lorena sempre foram pessoas maravilhosas ajudaram em todos os sentidos. A energia no hostel sempre foi muito boa e posso dizer que tive bons momentos. Super voltaria e aconselho a ir, vale pena muito a pena passar um tempo no Caribe brasileiro Alter do chão junto ao Dom preguiça.



Além de Alter do Chão ser um lugar lindo demais foi incrível poder ficar no Don Preguiça fazendo o voluntariado. Pessoal tranquilo, tarefas tranquilas...
Gostei muito da experiência!
