The Experience

Hostel Matilda is quiet. Don't get me wrong though, you can rest, but you sure will have a lot of fun too. Many restaurants if you are into food, bars if your into parties and a nice bed and shower. :) We ask you to be organized and clean - this is very important for us. Apart of that, we just want you to have a nice time with us.

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

A vibe aqui no Hostel Matilda é fantástica: o espaço é bonito, limpo e organizado. A localização é ótima, sobretudo para quem gosta de tirar uns rolezim, já que a o Hostel localiza-se no largo da ordem, espaço Curitibano de efervescente cultura de rua. As packers que são voluntárias aqui são fantásticas, cada uma de um lugar diferente, o que é bonito porque possibilita muitas trocas, em amplos sentidos. Hostel Matilda já têm um bonito espaço no meu coração! Super recomendado! :)
