My stay in Fonte Nova Hostel was good, the hostel is located a few blocks from de historic center of Salvador, i work mostly in reception so it was easy and calm, Gleidson the host, is flexible with the work shifts so i had time to get to know Salvador better, there is subway station near so you can move aroud.
The city of Salvador is beautiful, i visited the historic center, the harbour and the beaches, but you have to walk carefully because there is some unsafe part in the city, however i enjoyed a lot Salvado de Bahia.



It was great to be there and get the time to discover Salvador, all in ones! Gleidson is really nice and always welling to help if you need, and flexible with the schedule! Everything is made for you to feel like at home... Thank you Gleidson!

I stayed here in Fonte Nova hostel for three weeks while living in Salvador. The team is so kind, and Gladison is very receptive and generous. The hostel is ideally located right next to the metro (which means a lot!!) and near Pelourinho too. I mostly worked in reception from 8-2pm with 1 day off a week. I used he kitchen to cook and there is a supermarket and a fruiteria on the block so very helpful. I didn’t speak any português when I got here, but I have learned some! The team of workers here are so kind and friendly and I feel very at home!



Ótima troca. Gleidson é uma pessoa sensacional. Muito simpático e prestativo.


Gleidson replied

Obrigado, valeu por tudo!!Sucesso sempre!!


A estrutura oferecida aos voluntários deixa a desejar muito. O quarto não tinha ventilação, espaço para guardar os pertences (armários estavam todos ocupados) e deu curto no chuveiro enquanto estava no banho. O trabalho de mídias sociais está no começo e não muito desenvolvido, o que me deixou bastante perdida. Ainda assim pude fazer algumas fotos e vídeos bacanas enquanto conhecia a cidade. Não foi uma experiência agradável, mas mais por um planejamento ruim do que má vontade da equipe. Não é um hostel comum, com espaço de convivência e trocas, mas fiz boas amizades com os outros voluntários!


Gleidson replied

Desculpa, mas oferecemos uma estrutura boa sim, essa organização do quarto é de vcs, de todas as avaliações só a sua foi ruim. Se você tivesse me falado, com certeza de tudo que vc disse ter acontecido, teria sido resolvido de imediato, fora que converso antes com todos os voluntários. O que houve foi uma falta de comprometimento sua, do que combinamos. E passamos nossa política que vcs todos tem conhecimento.
