Meu experiencia na La Gloria Beach was GREAT. Eu fiquei como 1 mês e it totally felt home. The schedule e organized e the hours are fair enough as well as the turns. Joe, THANKS for all the support, for the help with the task and for being nice to ask and say things. You´re a beautiful person. I already miss your banana bolo, e seu special quente sanduicho. I made many friend aqui. I was lucky to find a great group a people to work with too. The location is close to the best beaches in town, e muito limpo e cafe da manha a muito rico. Thanks Amauri and Pietro por tudo.

Adoramos você Soraia!!! Volte sempre! Vc faz falta aqui!



My experience at La Gloria Beach Hostel was Wonderful. It was my 5th volunteering job/experience and I could say the best of all of them. Joara e Amaury, the owners, are great people and they became like family. Is hard to say goodbye when you get to love the people. Also the hostel has a beautiful view of the hill and Atlantic Forest and pretty near to the most beautiful beaches and waterfalls. The hostel is all good vibes. You feel enchanted on Ilhabela with so many outdoor things to do. I made not only friends at La Gloria, but a family ♥ Thanks Jo and Amaury from my heart!! You're awesome.

It is a place that you feel welcomed. The hosts really put their work and love into their business and tend to be fair with everyone.
It is a nice place to stay and there are lovely beaches around and waterfalls - just beware the borrachudos! So use repel cream.

Tive muita sorte da minha primeira experiência como Packer ter sido no La Gloria House, a Jô e o Amauri são muito próximos, criam um ambiente familiar e com muita proximidade dos pakers, me senti tão a vontade que pude colaborar em outras áreas como mídias sociais e a identidade visual do espaço. A localização no lado Sul de Ilhabela tb é incrível, dá para ir a pé para as praias mais lindas da Ilha.
