I have been responsible for marketing at Hostel Esperanto dealt mainly with social media and the website which needed proper translation. Some ideas out of these two tasks were performed which helped with the organization of some procedures. I could come up with ideas for their future which I hope someday become something real like parties, meetings and so on. There are many rooms for improvement and I want to believe that each day they will keep on pushing themselves to become the best hostel and team at Praia do Futuro. Wish you all the good things Hostel Esperanto!

Hostel Esperanto is a nice place, walk distance from Praia do Futuro.
They offer a great breakfast, discounts on tours and drinks, flexible shifts and free drinks.
The owners, Alex, Victor and Antoine are always willing to listen to the volunteers needs and help as much as they can.
They accept suggestions and ideas from volunteers, the hostel is not perfect yet, but it is improving day after day.
