My time at Boi Bumba was great. Jefferson, Caroline, Taciana and Janine were all very nice to me. I did the night shift 3 times a week and then I had plenty of time to go around João Pessoa and visit nearby beaches.

It was my first experience and I really loved! They give me all support and was fair about my work time. They gave the schedule to me at my first day, so I could plan all my trip in advance, without concernings. The staff was easy to work with and also helped me when I needed it! Thanks all!!!

About the host

My Hostel is a backpacker's dream that came true. While I was traveling I wondered how awesome would be if one day I could be the host myself and travel whithout leaving my place. The idea of receiving people from all over the world and make than feel home at my own home. After all, feeling at home is a state of mind and not a place itself.
