What about Zili? I think my experience at Zili boils down to GRATITUDE. Since the first contact with Luigi, I felt welcomed. On the first day I arrived, a beautiful surprise, I got my own name in that place. I had the first day off to adapt, and the next day I received very specific training on the tasks that would be my responsibility, which was very good, especially for your first volunteering. As for Zili's facilities, the place is beautiful, very pleasant, cozy, and homey. This zili experience has transformed me!

As my first Worldpacker experience, Zili was an amazing place to start. Everyone was engaged to make the hostel organized, clean and comfortable for the guests, and they are also concerned about the environment, which I learned so much from everyone! It was a place of healing and restoration of what's truly of my essence. I liked it so much that I prolonged my stay with them, and the hours of volunteering were very flexible. You have clear tasks of what you need to do, but you also need to be proactive and notice the things that need to be done. Thank you so much for everything! ❤️

Voluntariar no zilli foi a melhor experiência que eu já tive até agora nesses 1 ano e 6 meses de mochilao. O zili é como se fosse o coração de uma mãe sempre cabe mais um e você vai se sentir acolhido rápido. O hostel é incrível, a decoração é coisa mais linda cheio de artes pela casa você fica viajando as vezes . As instalações para dormi também são boas temos o quarto de voluntários só para a gente isso é bem bacana, o café da manhã é bem delícia . Super recomendo e quero voltar um dia , o zili fez eu abri meu coração para recife . Obrigado luigi e paulo um bjos e abraço de maybe .

Vivi dias INCRÍVEIS no Zili. Fui muito bem acolhida por todos e realmente me senti em casa. Luigi e Dona Vanja (minha mainha pernambucana) foram maravilhosos desde o primeiro momento. Meu coração está partido em ter que deixar Recife, o Zili e todos os bons amigos que fiz aqui. Sou muito sortuda por ter escolhido (e ter sido escolhida) esse Hostel como meu primeiro voluntariado fora do meu Estado. Aprendi muito sobre mim e sobre a vida.
GRATIDÃO POR TUDO. AMO TODOS VOCÊS! S2

Primeiramente recebemos orientação e treinamento antes de começar. Na função da limpeza sempre tem algo a fazer durante a carga horária das 6h, o hostel é grande mas há um checklist bem estruturado para as tarefas, o que facilita no dia a dia. A Geni além de maravilhosa, está sempre presente para ajudar e tirar dúvidas.
O Zili é um ambiente muito bem organizado e de muita alegria, me senti acolhida por todos os voluntários e pelo carinho da Aninha, Dona Vanja, Bento e Ganga.
Está sendo uma experiência massa!
Gratidão ao Paulo e o Luigi por me permitir fazer parte da família Zili 💜
