1st WP was like it should be
Sad: No one knew my name as I arrived and told me to clean while doing social media
Omar is SO COOL and quickly solved
I also had to work at his colleague parties, she didn't like/respect my work, 2 much 4 a volunteer
Some of us got Covid and it all kept "normal" (a real dealbreaker to me)
Anyway: REALLY love and miss u all
YES APPLY!!! but to a fair shift as cleaning and to work to WP host Omar
Tks Uba, Omar and Trópico Family!Hope we meet again<3

An incredible experience that provided me a lot of learning and personal growth. I made a lot of new friends and a really cool network. Excellent location close to the city center and beautiful beaches such as Tenório, Praia Grande, Vermelha do Centro and Cedrinho.

Foi a minha primeira viagem pela Worldpackers, obrigado Worldpackers! o hostel tem uma boa localização, perto de mercados, bares, farmácia, orla, perto do centro de Ubatuba, é um local com muita energia boa, local rotativo, sempre tem gente chegando e partindo, isso é incrível pois na convivência você aprende muito, pratiquei muito o meu inglês, sempre tem alguém de outro país, me diverti e fiz conexões com duas queridas que vou levar para vida, Ubatuba tem praias incríveis, foi ótima a experiencia, obrigado trópico!

Foi uma das experiências mais incríveis da minha vida! Já tinha ido a Ubatuba outras vezes, mas nenhuma foi tão intensa e bem vivida como essa!! Sou muuuito grata à toda a equipe de voluntários do TC, ao Omar, à Elisa e a todos os hóspedes que passaram por lá durante a minha estadia, esse conjunto fez com que eu experimentasse momentos únicos e que guardarei pra sempre no coração! O Trópico agora tem um terreninho no meu coração e pretendo retornar em breve!! Gratidão! 💛

O Hostel Trópico de Capricórnio realmente te faz se sentir em uma casa, dentro de uma família... E todos os seus integrantes são personalidades excepcionais. Todos os dias almoçavamos juntos e curtiamos a noite de ubatuba. Enfim, foi uma experiência inesquecível e com certeza vou voltar para rever a galera, o hostel tem tudo que você precisa, não deixa a desejar em nenhum quesito.
