The Experience

Our hostel is located in the cultural heart of Salvador, just steps away from the historical Pelourinho and close to many beaches. We are looking for someone to help us with photography, video production, and promote our hostel on our social media (Instagram, Facebook, Youtube and Google), showing the beauty and culture of the hostel and the surroundings of Salvador. We want to start a Blog project, if you have experience, it would be great! =)

The hostel is in the city center of Salvador perfect to discover the city. Neuza is a owner really nice. She is welcoming and always helpful. The tasks are easy and Neuza is really flexible and understable. You have time to go out and discover the city. It was a pleasure to help her! I recommend!

Dona Neuza super atenciosa e preocupada comigo, o hostel é bem localizado com facil acesso para muitos lugares, confiou em mim, conversamos muito sobre a vida, sobre a cidade e sobre experiencias possiveis dentro do voluntáriado, Dona Neuza me encorajou a viajar mais pela Bahia e pelo mundo, Dona Neuza me deu várias dicas do que fazer na cidade de graça ou a preços baixos, sempre me indicou a melhor forma forma de chegar nos lugares, foi uma experiencia muito boa.

Experiência bem ruim. Fui tratado com pouca empatia durante a estadia. A anfitriã me recebeu dizendo que não gosta de brasileiros e não confiava em quem trabalha com o que eu trabalho. O clima era pesado. Não recebi as três coisas que o hostel oferece: café da manhã, quarto da equipe e lavanderia, que outros usavam, mas a mim foi negada. Hóspedes se queixavam da sujeira e de coisas sumindo nos quartos e cozinha (perdi 200 reais em dinheiro e objetos). A Worldpackers entendeu e me deu o seguro. No outro dia fui comunicar a anfitriã, que me recebeu dizendo que "me avaliou mal".

Desculpe a verdade não é está , NADA lhe fui negado vc pedi-o para que eu lavasse sua roupa, eu sou uma anfitriã não empregada sua e nem de ninguém que vem fazer uma troca. Depois de vc ter saído do hostel sem dar um até logo apareceu para dois dias depois para se queixar do prejuízo que teve na sua moto por ter guardado na rua, vc me pedi-o desculpa por ter saído sem avisar, e nada foi falado de prejuízo dentro do hostel, além de um condicionador marca DOVE que vc deixava no banheiro, na aquele momento lhe avisei que em qualquer lugar do mundo em hostel cada um, é responsável pelas suas coisas. No quarto ás duas pessoas que estava no mesmo se queixou da sua bagunça e sujeira, jogar seu lixo na lixeira, é o mínimo que se pode fazer independente de sua função., Arrogância não combina com voluntariado. Quando eu lhe avisei da avaliação vc já tinha saído do hostel sem dar um até logo, fui voluntária toda a minha juventude, e vc tem muito o que aprender se continuar fazendo intercambio. Ofereço o café da manhã, como vc queria servido ficou sem tomar, em vez de pegar sua fruta, fazer seu ovo, colocar seu café .....Chegar em outro Estado ou outro país, e ter uma família para nos receber de portas abertas mesmo sem nunca ter nos visto, é motivo de agradecimentos e gratidão, E ai que entra a GENTILEZA.
