Good place to work as volunteer, the teamwork is really amazing, they are always at the best disposal to help, also the hostel and its environment is really good, I had an excellent experience. Tasks are easy and the work hours was fair. The atmosphere of the place is the best! I'll always be thankful for being so well received for everyone. They are kind, polite and they will be always there to help you with all your needs. I'm glad I had this beautiful opportunity and hope to see you again!

As my first experience as a packer green Haven was excellent. I've learned a lot how to give the best experience to our guests. The work was balanced, 6 h a day, keeping the commom area always clean an organized, clean the bathrooms, do the check-ins and check-outs and the best part, make the guests feel at home and party a lot!!! All parties at the hostel for free and good discounts like in surfing lessons. Location is really good, 20 min to the downtown, great bakery nearby, an only 15 min to the bus stop. Really easy to go to the best beaches of Ubatuba. Great atmosphere and cozy place.

This was my first experience as a worldpacker and I couldn't have picked a better place to do it. Everyone at Green Haven made me feel at home from the start and I can definitely say that I've gained some friends for life here.
The hostel is very nice and has an excellent location, right across the street from a beautiful beach.
I've learned a lot here, starting with my Portuguese, and had so much fun I ended up staying longer because I really didn't want to leave!
Thank you Vini and staff for this wonderful experience!

I couldn't have chosen a better place to have my first experience, from the first moment I felt at home.This trip represented a before and after in my life: every person I met transmitted and taught me something beautiful, every place I visited allowed me to reconnect with myself, every message I received when the guests left filled my heart.I learned so many things and formed strong bonds that I will never forget. I admire Vini for his empathy and his great business skills. I have no doubt that I will return, and even tho i lost my phone, all the memories lives in my head. Blessed n thankful.

I wish words were enough to describe my incredible experience in Green Haven. I met incredible people from all over the world, became great friends with the staff and the owners, partied till the sun came out and relaxed at the most beautiful beaches.
The work is easy and if you ever need help, there will always be someone willing to give you a hand.
If you’re thinking of staying here, do it! Go with an open mind and heart and you will have the time of your life!!!!
