Learning & Fun




Volunteering in Drifter Hostel was an amazing experience! I really enjoyed everything there.
Carina and Allesandra are pretty friendly and they were always worried about making me feel at home. The location is great and you can get to the beach by walking few minutes.




one of the best experiences I've had so far, lovely people and a very welcoming environment!




Essa foi a minha primeira experiência com a worldpackers. Fui bem recebida, o trabalho é tranquilo e justo, e ainda pude aproveitar as praias por ali, que são lindas!
Conheci muita gente aos finais de semana, época em que as energias são diversas! Também pude me desafiar durante a semana, período que o hostel fica mais vazio e que pude ficar sozinha, descansar e recompor.
Carina, Anísia, Edna, Mara e Ale, obrigada por esse tempo que passamos juntos e por terem me recebido com tanto carinho.




Fui muito bem recebida!! O Hostel eh bem gostoso e os horários bem flexíveis!




Ser voluntário no Drifter Hostel foi minha primeira experiência no Worldpackers . E como o titulo da vaga diz, foi exatamente o que aconteceu: "Experiências incríveis em São Sebastião". E o Drifter Hostel é exatamente como está na descrição. Um lugar ótimo para ficar um tempo em contato com a natureza e explorar a região maravilhosa, praias, trilhas, cachoeiras e as famosas As Ilhas. As proprietárias e os voluntários sempre estão dispostos a ajudar quando você tem dúvidas. Muito obrigado por essa oportunidade incrível!
