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.

Mi experiencia en La Gloria fue muy buena, mejoré mi portugués, las tareas eran sencillas y los horarios flexibles. Amauri y Joara me hicieron sentir parte de la familia desde el primer momento que llegué, contagiaban su tranquilidad. La isla es preciosa, la posada está ubicada muy cerca de playas hermosas. Recomiendo mucho. Muito obrigada La Gloria!!!
