Un ambiente muy agradable, la ubicación es fantastica, se ajuda al Staff y se puede disfrutar el hostel, una buena entrada para Florianopolis

Geckos Hostel es un lindo y tranquilo hostel ubicado en una muy buena zona de Florianopolis. Está cerca de bares y restaurantes y tiene una muy buena vida nocturna. El hostel es pequeño y tienen muy bien definidas todas las tareas del Hostel. Lo recomiendo sobretodo para quienes recién inician su experiencia como voluntarios.
Puntos a favor: Buena zona(pero no esta cerca de la playa), excelente desayuno, lindo hostel, tareas fáciles y bien definidas. También tuve la suerte de tener un lindo equipo de trabajo.
Puntos en contra: Poca comunicación del anfitrión para con el equipo

A estada no Geckos foi maravilhosa! Arriscaria dizer que tive vontade de ficar lá por tempo indeterminado! Até mesmo por isso acabei saindo de repente, tentando não pensar muito.. e se pudesse faria diferente. O Max me acolheu muito bem, o modo como ele define as tarefas é muito respeitoso e justo. Ele trata todos com muita educação e faz a gente se sentir parte do negócio a ponto de querer cuidar do hostel como se fosse nosso. Além disso, o clima de modo geral do hostel é muito astral. Recomendo e adoraria voltar a voluntariar lá!
