Meu tempo no hostel foi ótimo! Muita boa organização, muito confortável, um bom movimento de viajantes criando uma vibe boa mas tranquila também. Nunca cheguei a conhecer a Marlene, mas a Caiana é incrível e explicou bem as tarefas e ajudou muito com a administração. O trabalho em geral é muito tranquilo, da tempo para descansar, curtir da praia que é justo ao lado, sair no carimbó e o chorinho. Alter é um lugar muito lindo e coisas interessantes podem acontecer aqui! Obrigado 😊

Desde o primeiro contato, estava confiante de que teria uma excelente experiência, e não me enganei. O hostel possui uma localização privilegiada, é impecavelmente limpo, os horários são flexíveis e respeitados, e as tarefas são muito tranquilas. Recomendo sem hesitação. Gostaria de agradecer à Caiana, que me recebeu tão bem e sempre foi muito atenciosa. Também tive a sorte de trabalhar com voluntários tranquilos, e a Keila, a funciona do hostel, é um amor. Espero poder voltar em outra oportunidade.

Me senti muito confortável e segura no hostel. Me senti em casa mesmo. Local aconchegante, organizado e muito limpo! Variava o turno, o que ajudou p/ curtir Alter. Digo que RESPIREI ALTER! O hostel é pertinho da praia, orla e praça. Aluguei uma bike para fazer outros rolês por ali. Me conectei com a cultura local e pude conhecer um dos pajés da comunidade, o projeto Suraras e liderança indígena Borari. Marlene, sou grata de td meu coração pela oportunidade! Tive o presente de conhecer: Caiana, Isa, Keila, Huay, Nati. P/ mim virou uma chave sobre o conceito da palavra família. Levo vcs no coração
