Minha primeira experiência como Worldpacker não poderia ter sido em outro lugar além do Banana Leaf. Fui muito bem recebido por todos. Mark e Cintia são a alma do lugar e fazem com que tudo funcione bem, sempre disponíveis para ajudar e tirar dúvidas. Pude aprender muito durante e durante o meu tempo livre aproveitei as atrações turísticas próximas. O hostel é muito tranquilo, a equipe muito divertida. Com certeza quero voltar um dia e poder rever as pessoas que conheci.

Minha estadia no Hostel foi uma experiência boa, tranquila, fui muito bem recebida, bem tratada, pelos proprietários , funcionários e outros voluntários . Mas acredito que além deles, como voluntário temos um papel muito importante para ter um bom tratamento, pois o voluntário deve prestar um bom trabalho a qual se candidatou, ser simpático, gentil. Ouvi comentário que dentre os voluntários, eu fazia parte de um grupo de voluntários que trabalhava de fato. Acredito que se fizermos o trabalho conforme nos candidatamos, seremos reconhecidos, valorizados e conquistaremos carinho e atenção.

No momento em que cheguei já me senti parte de uma família, o hostel é uma gracinha e a vista é de tirar o fôlego! Não tenho palavras para descrever essa experiência incrível.

It was my first WorldPackers experience and I spent a great time with them. If you are looking for a great place surrounded by nature, with nice staffs and far from everything else, it is certainly the right place to stay.

I did all kinds of required work, since using my social media and advertising skills and also cleaning and all stuffs possible. It is usually a fair and nice place to work with flexible time, despite they required much more work than usual in the new year eve period and I didn't feel comfortable with this. So I recommend to you, except on this period of the year.
