If you are looking for good atmosphere, meet travelers, social people, this is the wrong place. This is not a “hostel” is more like “place to live” there are a lot of residents.
I will not recommend this place.
-Location is great
-Volunteers are amazing
-Job is okay (depends how many volunteers are during your stay)
-Room is good (double bed room)
-Excellent facilities & security

Decidi renunciar, trabajo muy pesado por lo menos para mi, algunos tienen tareas faciles. Cada dia me asignaban los check out, que es hacer limpieza exhaustiva en una habitacion, incluyendo bano con cientos de baldosas pequenas que toca llenar primero de cloro, luego en medio de ojos rojos y llorosos por el quimico, pasar una esponja de Cocina y quitarles lo amarillo. Al final me tenian trabajando sin guantes con quimicos fuertes ya que los quirurgicos me produjeron una fuerte alergia. Su respuesta fue que no habia otros y tampoco compraron. Me dieron unos ya usados que la aumentaron.
