a very warm welcome makes you feel straight at home. Sociabel, friendly, inviting and hospitality are but a few of the qualities are shown towards you. They are interested in you as a person and are flexibel towards your ideas and needs as well. The location of work has everything and more than needed, as also the Salvador itself. If to return, Carmelo and his lovely family would be my first call, for they have become so much more than hosts.

O lugar é muito bem localizado, além do fato da equipe ser maravilhosa. A vivi, o Ronald, o Marcus, a Gê, a Luciana, todos eles viraram grandes amigos... os anfitriões Carmelo e Mara são pessoas maravilhosas também, me senti em casa. As tarefas são simples e tudo foi bem explicado.

A Terra Nossa foi como ter um lar próprio no Salvador. Os anfitriões Carmelo e Mara, foram muito atenciosos em tudo o que precisamos na experiência. A equipe das pousadas, Joanice, Lu, Ronald, o Kauã<3, e todas as pessoas com as que tive a oportunidade de compartilhar o dia a día, me deixaram muitos aprendizados e sempre me fizeram sentir como em casa. As tarefas foram simples e claras desde o começo, sempre estiveram abertos para conversar sobre os horários. O lugar é ótimo para quem procura viver no coração do Pelourinho, a festa, os tambores, é os shows que acontecem toda semana.

Foi minha primeira experiência com a Worldpackers, realmente me senti em família, Mara e Carmelo são pessoas maravilhosas e incríveis que nos ajudaram muito, sempre preocupados em estarmos da melhor maneira, todos os funcionarios são muito queridos e foi legal realizar as tarefas junto com eles. As tarefas são simples e nos explicaram muito bem tudo, e a localização é boa pra quem gosta de festa e se conectar com a cultura local do Pelourinho.
Com certeza vou sentir muita saudade de todos da pousada.
Em especial ao Kauã que nos encantou com sua doçura e alegria, vou sentir muita saudade.

Eu amei e já estou morrendo de saudades!
A equipe, vivi, Alana, Marcus e o ronald são pessoas incríveis!
A localização é perfeita no coração do pelo.
O Carmelo não fica muito presente no Hostel mas ele dá todo o suporte que precisamos e não interferiu em nada.
O trabalho é super tranquilo e a vivi me orientou super bem.
Não vejo a hora de voltar! 😍
