I really have no words to explain how extraordinary it was to find this opportunity in Sua Casinha. Ana and Carlos have always been present since day 1 and helped me in all aspects beyond volunteer work. The hostel is wonderful and has everything you need to complete the tasks and also to feel comfortable or even have fun. I really recommend this experience to anyone looking to meet Austin, who is looking to meet people from all parts of the world and wants to find a home away from home. Thank you so much Sua Casinha I hope to return in a few years!!!



Sua Casinha was an experience that I will carry close to my heart, the people I met, the friends I made, Carlos and Ana were always ready willing to help, amazing people.
I would have to think really hard to find something to complain about, all I can say is thank you for the opportunity, and I really hope to see y'all again soon! MUITO OBRIGADO!!

I volunteered here for couple of weeks during Dec. Although I never met Ana (only on FaceTime) she was always there if needed and very thorough. I met Carlos a couple of time who was really nice! The other volunteers were really nice to work with. My hours were not crazy, and found I had lot of free time afterwards which was good!
I met some really cool people here and would highly recommend!

Sua Casinha Hostel really feels like a home away from home! Ana and Carlos do a great job with making volunteers feel welcome and making themselves available for any questions. I volunteered for 2 weeks at the San Antonio hostel and was able to explore the city during my days off. The work was straight forward and seemed like a fair exchange. I highly recommend Sua Casinha if you find yourself in San Antonio!



Sua Casinha hostel its super cozy and friendly, i loved to stay there, even for a short period.Everything is very well organized and clean.
Unfortunately Ana was travelling during my stay, so i didn't meet her in person, only via internet, but even them she was always very present and helpful!
