Este ha sido mi primer voluntariado y ha sido perfecto. El staff del hostel es genial. Hay muy buen ambiente y Egidio en concreto es increíble, amable y siempre dispuesto a ayudar con las dudas y el trabajo desde el primer momento que uno llega al hostel.
Las tareas son muy sencillas y los horarios se respetan muchísimo, por lo que da tiempo a conocer y disfrutar de la ciudad y de la experiencia.
Recomiendo 100% este voluntariado.
Gracias Green Tortoise! Gracias Egidio por todo :)

I had a really great time at the hostel, Egidio is a really good & genuine manager who’s grateful for the help provided and makes it very clear what needs to be done. The hours were as described or less and it is a really pleasant, relaxed & organised working environment.
The facilities in the hostel are great and it has a huge social area to meet guests.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and was sad to leave - I would definitely recommend volunteering here and would love to come back in the future!

My first Worldpackers experience and I'm so glad it was at Green Tortoise Hostel.
Egidio really is a great person and everyone in the hostel helped at making it feel as a home away from home during my time there, I would gladly stay at GT if I ever went back to San Francisco!

This is my first trip by Worldpackers but I enjoyed it a lot. The host completely followed our contract about working hours , so there was a plenty of time to get around San Francisco. In addition, the vibes of this hostel is amazing. Everyone is so friendly and you can make a friend with them immediately. I totally can recommend this hostel to work!!
