La vibra del lugar es algo especial, Guatape es un lugar increíble lleno de sirios para descubrir. Las horas trabajando en el bar/restaurante son justas y el desayuno con vista al lago es increíble! Sin duda una de las mejores experiencias de voluntariado!!! Gracias Alex y todo el equipo del Lake!! se queda una parte de mi corazón aquí.

This was our first experience with this site and it was above and beyond our expectations! Alex was who we were in contact with. He wasn't available when we first arrived, but he had everything handled and arranged to get us started. He took extra time with us to show us around and helped us with future endeavours. A super helpful and intelligent guy to have as a contact. It helped beyond measure that he spoke perfect English, as we are trying to slowly learn the native language. Facilities were fantastic. Five stars doesn't even begin to describe our experience. Guatapé is a must see!

We spent a month in Guatape at Lake View, and it was a great experience. Alex, the manager, was very attentive and responsive to the volunteers' requests, and the hostel facilities are very clean and in good shape.

We were in the bar/restaurant and had a good rapport with the permanent staff--Esteban the bartender is super-friendly and helpful in orienting new volunteers, and the kitchen staff were a pleasure to work with.

As described in their listing, the work is 6 days a week, but we were never asked to work more than what was agreed upon, and they were flexible about changes.
