Voluntariado súper recomendable . Ubicado en el Poblado. Tiene una estructura de horarios semanales lo que te permite podér recorrer la ciudad en tus tiempos libres. Tuvimos la suerte que se formó un lindo equipo. El anfitrión tiene buena comunicación y es claro en lo que exige. A demás se nos da la posibilidad de hacer turnos extras y generar ingresos con comisiones de tours. Se fomenta una integración voluntario - huésped por lo que la energía del lugar es amigable. Gracias Spyros por la experiencia!!

Had the best experience in Arcadia! Happy to call this my home in Medellin :)
I was helping in reception and with the guide of Sanja I picked up all the tasks pretty quickly. The other volounteers and guests were amazing and can't thank enough everyone for the remarkable experience 🙏
I def recommend Arcadia for your volunteering experience in Medellin. Probably the best volounteer so far 🔥
Thanks Sanja and everyone from the team 🙌

Amazing experience! The team was really nice and helpful, I really felt appreciated there. I had a lot of free time, because Sanja, the manager was incredibly flexible with my schedule. I managed to get 3 days off on one of my week and during my 4 weeks I only had to do 2 night shifts. The tasks were always clear. The work was reception and was easy to learn. The hostel has a family vibe so it is very social and easy to meet people. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. :) Thank you!

I had a great time at Hostel Arcadia. I did manly nightshifts which means to open the door, do late Check-Ins, be responsible for the security and do some general cleaning.

Spyros is a good boss, he respects the shifts and your free time.
He gives clear orders and has clear rules, which makes the work easier.

Most of the guests are from Western countries so English is more important then Spanish, but it is good to have a basic understanding of it.

Muchas Gracias Spyros
