I had an incredible time! Paulo, our host, is genuinely kind. He organized various events for me and my girlfriend, and we had a blast. The fellow volunteers were also friendly, and we enjoyed parties and good times together. The workload is reasonable, allowing you to explore the city. I definitely hope to return one day! :)

It was such a great experience!! The hostel is really cozy and comfortable and all the people there were super nice and welcoming. Most of the time I had do work less hours than it says in worldpackers, so I had more free time. The city was also really beautiful! I can highly recommend this hostel for everyone!!🥰🌞

Foi minha segunda vez no hostel, e como sempre me senti em casa! Paulo e os demais voluntários são sempre muito gentis e solícitos! As atividades propostas também foram super tranquilas e ajudaram a socializar e a me conectar com outras pessoas, muito obrigada mais uma vez pela experiência , voltarei sempre que puder !

Bom .. (respiração profunda lembrando de todos bons momentos que passeio no hostel). Foi minha primeira experiência como voluntariado, nunca tinha ido a São João Del Rei e realizar o primeiro voluntariado no hostel foi incrível, adorei conhecer as pessoas de lá, o Paulo e o Hugo são pessoas incríveis de se conhecer e conversar, uma troca de experiências incrível. Mas tome cuidado, a qualquer dia pode aparecer um chef de cozinha e fazer um almoço para todos do hostel e você se deliciar com este almoço como uma grande família hahah foi incrível, voltarei mais vezes ao o hostel.

O hostel é sem dúvidas o melhor Hostel que já fiquei! Muito bem estruturado e com piscina. As tarefas são tranquilas e o pessoal do local e os donos são muito agradáveis e estão sempre dispostos a ajudar, conversar e se conecta com você. Tive chance de conviver com pessoas de outros países e treinar outras línguas. A cidade é bem barata e tem um almoço de 2,90 na rua de baixo muito gostoso! Alem disso tem o café da manhã do Hostel que é espetacular. Agradeço a todos que convivi por aqui e um dia volto. Abraços
