I had an amazing time working in this hostel ! I already visited and worked in other hostels but this one was particularly friendly and welcoming. If you come in Malaga for a few time, apply for the lights you will not be disappointed !!

This was my first experience volunteering at a hostel and I am immensely grateful for the opportunity. I consider all of the staff friends and I was surprised at how everyone welcomed me and how much they considered me part of the team. It was an important experience to learn how to live together and work as a team, and I was able to practice my English and Spanish a lot. I will miss my time there and possibly I'll come back one day 😊🙏

I had an incredible two and a half months at The Lights Hostel. I had so much fun connecting with the volunteers, staff, and guests. After completing all the different shifts, the work becomes very low stress. Many shifts have downtime where you have the chance to socialize with guests. I met so many people and guests would often ask about becoming a volunteer. I personally know multiple people who joined worldpackers after speaking with me and seeing The Lights. I'm sad to leave, but thankful for the great summer in Malaga. I hope I can return again one day and see the great people I met.

Long story short, too much happened in a short time, from the moment we talked about the shedule confirmation to the moment they gave me a wrong key and I had to stay outside for more than an hour.... but it's ok I'm good. when it starts like this, I'm not gonna lie I don't feel comfortable, wish you all the best.
