Adorei conhecer SJDR, os nativos,a rua da cachaça,a parte histórica. Na rua de baixo tem um restaurante popular, comida boa e só $2,50.
O hostel tem um espaço enorme, área verde, piscina, tive vários momentos de reflexão nos espaços que é bem paz de jah.Agradeço o Paulo e a Jéssica pela oportunidade,pois através do meu voluntariado conheci pessoas incríveis que passaram por lá,adorei a Milena que é uma dog linda e carinhosa.Precisei ir embora alguns dias antes da data combinada devido a dores na coluna, avisei os anfitriões com 48 hs de antecedência e cumpri o voluntariado mais 2 dias.

O del Mundo hostel é um lugar incrível, muito bem localizado em uma das principais ruas de São João del rei e com um espaço maravilhoso, incluindo uma área verde extensa.
A intensidade das atividades de limpeza e organização dependem do fluxo dos hóspedes.
Os anfitriões Paulo e Jéssica são pessoas incríveis que pude compartilhar vivências e momentos ótimos. Eles se mostraram sempre abertos ao diálogo e são flexíveis quanto às folgas.

Cara, eu amei ficar no Hostel Del Mundo. O lugar é super fofo, organizado, bem localizado (fica no centro histórico da cidade), a equipe muito acolhedora, as tarefas são justas, e tem muita atividade na cidade pra se divertir e aprender sobre a história do Brasil e da cidade. Não tenho nenhuma reclamação. Só agradecimento. Super indico o lugar para voluntários e hóspedes.

Foi uma experiência muito boa voluntariar no del mundo! O Hostel é aconchegante e muito bem localizado. A Jéssica e o Paulo foram compreensivos com a questão de horários e dias livres, e bem diretos quanto as tarefas que deveriam ser feitas, que basicamente eram organização e limpeza dos quartos, espaços coletivos e algum cuidado com o jardim.
Os outros voluntários, João e Leo, são pessoas incríveis, agradeço cada conversa que tivemos. E o hostel ainda tem a melhor funcionária do mês: sentirei saudades da Milena e sua bolinha.

A rotina de tarefas do hostel é bem dividida, de modo que não fica pesado pra ninguém. Os proprietários, Jessica e tonim, são muito compreensivos e abertos ao diálogo. Um ponto muito bom pra quem tá se voluntariando é que na rua de baixo do hostel tem um restaurante popular. A localização é muito boa, perto de tudo. Um salve especial pro João e pro Léo, voluntários que dividiram a experiência com a gente, que fizeram desse rolê muito mais especial! Super indico a experiência :)
