The Experience

O hostel está localizado em um cenário maravilhoso cercado pela natureza numa ilha paradisíaca. Precisamos de pessoas proativas para nos ajudar na limpeza e arrumação dos quartos, banheiros, cozinha e áreas comuns. Além disso, precisamos de ajuda na recepção (checkin e checkout e interação com os hóspedes) e para preparar o café da manhã pros hóspedes. Precisamos de pessoas proativas para ajudar no que for necessário pro hostel funcionar bem!

The shared room is quite small for the number of beds, expect to share it with 4 or more people, if it’s not a problem to you, you’ll enjoy all the rest. The hosts are great and respectful. I really enjoyed my time there! They have a beautiful shala, where I could teach yoga every morning. The breakfast was good and they have a great space where you can cook the other meals. Boipeba is a paradise and it’s perfect to connect with nature. I loved my experience there. Thank you Abaquar family!

Excelente professora de yoga! Os hóspedes e Voluntarios amaram! Muito obrigada!



This was my first volunteering experience. The hostel has an amazing structure between the beach and the mangrove which I found wonderful. Volunteers have access to all common areas which are really nice. Work exchange is very organized, everyone has a clear schedule that distributes activities fair enough. While I was there, there were some structure things that were required at the volunteers room and where not addressed with importance in my opinion, but is something that can be improved. I learned a lot. Boipeba is amazing.
