I had a great time at Hostel Matilda. I was a little bit nervous because this was my first experience as a volunteer, but the staff and the hostess (Rafa) did everything to make me feel welcome and comfortable. I only stayed for 5 days, so the tasks were kind of easy, nothing too complicated (cleaning, check in and out, guard the hostel and make the guests feel welcomed). If you're thinking to volunteer there I totally recommend you to do it!

That was, definitely, one of the best experiences I have ever had.
I knew that getting out of my comfort zone would be hard, but staying at Matilda made that so natural and easy that made me think "Why not staying here for, like, some years?"
All the people I met, all the experiences that I had made me a better person.
At the first week, all the work that I had to do were so easy and quick that made me feel like home.
And Rafaella is such an amazing, incredible and lovely person.
I would recommend Hostel Matilda to everyone I know.
I will come back, as a worldpacker or a guest s2

Matilda é, senão o melhor, um dos meus melhores voluntariados. Bem localizado, muito limpo e a cama mais confortável do mundo, parece que o colchão te abraça.
Aprendi sistema HQBeds, pratiquei inglês, espanhol e aprendi um pouco de alemão com um hóspede. Fazemos um pouco de tudo, limpeza, recepção, cuidar das plantas, e no bar pratiquei meu curso sommelier e aprendi uma caipirinha de jambu que é sucesso. A Carol gerente é responsável, me ensinou muito, ouviu minhas sugestões, se tornou uma amiga. Nahla me ensinou dobrar lençol de elástico e fazer camas caprichadas. #Gratidao Time Matilda!

Pô tive bastante aprendizado correlação a recepção, em outro voluntariado não tive interesse em fazer essa função, aqui tive a oportunidade de tentar é desenrolar essa função aí. Gostei bastante, Adorei conhecer o pessoal da casa. todos sem exceção, vou senti saudades mas logo menos estou de voltar, uma forte abraço a todos.🖤

Eu não sei nem como começar, esses 3 meses em Curitiba foram sensacionais! Gratidão a Nahla por me ensinar tanto e os parceiros do time, o ogrão do Guilbert e a Carol que é um amor. Sentirei muita saudade desse hostel e de Curitiba, espero voltar em breve!
