The Experience

Aqui no Aloha, sempre presamos para que tudo esteja sempre em perfeitas condições, mas diariamente surgem imprevistos como uma lampada queimada, pintura desbotada, telhado quebrado, partes elétricas a consertar, partes hidráulicas a consertar, Etc. São sempre pequenos detalhes e muito simples de resolver. Mas sempre isso pode fazer toda a diferença aos nossos hóspedes e voluntários que na nossa casinha estão. Se vc tem essas habilidades vem!😉

O Aloha em teoria é pra ter uma energia magnifica, mas infelizmente não foi o que eu encontrei no geral. Existe uma sensação de desgaste e cobrança as vezes sem sentido, uma pseudo-felicidade que torna a experiencia vazia. Me candidatei pra uma vaga e assim que cheguei fui designado para outra, até ai tudo bem, mas as horas volutariadas que eram pra ser 4/5, se tranformaram em 6h por até 7 dias. A localização do hostel e algumas pessoas (Bernado, Andréia, Victor e Daniel) foram a válvula de escape para melhorar a experiencia. Agredeço demais a oportunidade à Karla e ao Thor sucesso e reflexão.

Foi boa a experiência! Fui muito bem recebida por toda a equipe! Horários foram combinados certinho! Tarefas de recepção super tranquilo só não gostei da parte de lidar com o bar com publico de fora do hostel, Muita responsabilidade!!
Localização do hostel é ótima! Perto de tudo!!

Acredito que toda experiência é válida e pra mim como primeira no WP foi muito positiva, ainda que infelizmente não tenha sido perfeita. Vivenciei algumas das questões já mencionadas e por isso ao final do meu expediente no dia 11/04 fechei o voluntariado antecipadamente abrindo mão de 2 dias de folga.
Agradeço especialmente a Karla, ao Bernardo, Adriano e Victor, além claro de todos os colegas de voluntariado.

Lugar com uma vibe incrível! Obrigada a todos que fizeram desta experiência uma que irei levar para o resto da vida! Uma menção honrosa ao memorável Bernardo, que carrega nas costas tantas responsabilidades como gerente e ainda consegue encher o local de energia e positividade. Gratidão aos demais staff do Aloha, Andréia, Rose, Adriano, Victor e aos donos Karla e Tor, todos muito simpáticos e gente boa. Fiz uma famíllia em Fortaleza! Todos os dias foram uma aventura única, e mesmo com o tempo chuvoso, me apaixonei pela cidade, que tem muita riqueza física e cultural. Obrigada, Aloha!

Como minha primeira experiência de voluntariado pude aprender um pouco de como funciona um hostel/bar e outras habilidades. Carla e Thor são ótimas pessoas e me senti muito acolhido por eles, no geral foi muito bom. Não posso dizer que foi perfeito pois é necessária alguma supervisão em funcionários específicos que ajudam os voluntários de má vontade, isso quando ajudam. Mas de resto, espero voltar futuramente como hóspede.
