O.Bonete é um lugar maravilhoso e o Sambaqui é um lugar para se sentir em casa no Bonete. O hostel é ótimo, tarefas tranquilas e horários bem divididos. Duas dicas que podem ser úteis aos próximos viajantes: levarem meias e roupas compridas para os borrachudos e ter em mente que não há mercado lá, então considerar levar comida, vegetais principalmente, para o período de estada.

O sambaqui é um hostel altamente aconchegante, um espaço pra chamar de casa.
Carrego diversas lembranças maravilhosas vividas nesse lugar.
Os anfitriões Caju e Karina me receberam muito bem e as atividades no hostel foram super tranquilas.
Agradeço de coração pelas trocas e pela confiança, espero encontrá -los em breve :))
