A thousands of waterfalls, beaches and hiking to explore! And some cool local places to going out at night :) I definitely recomend! A wonderful place, wonderful people and wonderful vibes!



It was my first time as a volunteer on Worldpackers and it was awesome! The Hostel Central Ilhabela has a very unique vibe that I haven't felt anywhere else. And I felt like home right away.
The hosts are awesome and very friendly. The job is quite simple, but needs attention.
The Hostel is very close to the beach! Ilhabela is a such beautiful island and perfect place to relax. I surely recommend working there.



So amazing!!! Great exchange of work, service, lodging and friendship. Creating a new family that will last forever. Gratitude!



They are amazing people, the best kind! I had to leave early because my father got really sick, but the short time I spent there, I figured that there is a true family hostel.

Everthing about the place and the people is worth being there!
