The whole trip it self , was a different ball game . I truly enjoyed every second around the city . in particular Lencois maranheses. it's worth a visit .
Regarding to the Hostel where I Stayed in ,the place was cool , very chilled etc . working hours was flexible.
besides , unfortunately myself and another Three volunteers had some internal issues with the hostess regarding to the job that were giving to us .we all left before the data agreed due to issues we had . but after all , it was a learning experience with no regret at all 👌

Oiii Leandro, feliz demais por você ter aproveitado cada segundo da experiência, dos Lençóis Maranhenses.

Arrependimentos, jamais... de fato, tudo é aprendizado. E sem dúvidas foi um aprendizado pra mim ter que convidar você e outros dois voluntários (e não três, como vc descreve) que estavam aqui, a repensar o tempo de vocês no Aquarela, visto a inatividade, esquecimentos e por aí vai... nos turnos que cabia a cada um, gerando até prejuízos em reservas para o Aquarela.

De qualquer forma, gratidão mesmo! Por aqui, seguimos aprimorando nosso olhar para cada um que gostaria de vir contribuir com a gente..

Um abraço!

Espero que tenhas experiências mais positivas nas próximas andanças.

É uma pena que as suas atitudes aqui no Aquarela deixaram prejuízos financeiros e relacionais, com hóspedes, parceiros e outras voluntárias.

Infelizmente tua forma de falar, agir e desrespeitar os acordos resultaram no registro de um boletim de ocorrência por sair sem pagar seu consumo no meu estabelecimento e por graves ofensas (com testemunhas ocular e gravação das câmeras da recepção).

O mesmo também já foi encaminhado para esta plataforma para que tenham, eles, e próximos anfitriões ciência do ocorrido.

Há 2 anos que recebo voluntários e nunca havia me sentindo tão insegura com a presença de um.

Infelizmente não foi uma experiência positiva . Eu e mais dois voluntários saímos antes da data prevista. A soma de muitos fatores contribuiu para a nossa saída.

Hostel charmoso e tranquilo. Me senti a vontade tanto na hospedagem como para dar sugestões e pitacos. Recomendo a todos que buscam um lugar harmonioso para trabalhar enquanto conhecem os lençóis maranhenses.

A vivência no Aquarela foi maravilhosa!
A Bianca traz em si o espírito de mulher forte e empreendedora, com muitas ideias e força de vontade para fazer acontecer.
Sua energia contagia os voluntariados para transformar a experiência em hostel em algo que eu só tinha vivenciado até hoje fora do país.
Para mim foi uma experiência incrível saber que eu posso fazer qualquer coisa que eu quiser, se colocar carinho e minha energia.
Super recomendo a experiência no Aquarela!
