I loved my stay at Yoyo's. Gee, the owner and the staff are amazing and you get to know them well. A very social place, easy to make friends and have the best time. The work itself doens't require too much and you'll have time to chill, but be prepared to be social and interact with guests as that is the main thing volunteers are for. Ended up extending my stay as I did not want to leave. Definitely a home away from home. Will be back one day. Much love ❤️

Eu tive uma experiência bem tranquila. Gee, que foi meu anfitrião meu deu toda liberdade para desenvolver o meu trabalho em relação a criação de conteúdo e me ajudou com as demandas que precisava para melhor me adaptar à cidade.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I honestly couldn't ask for a better place. The host, Gee, is an amazing and funny guy and that creates such a lovely environment to live and work in. The hostel organizes and attends a lot of social events (parties, pool tournaments, movie nights, etc.) which is a great way to meet new people.
At YoYo's we say we are all a big family, and it really feels like that!!

I had a really lovely experience at yoyo! Gee’s family and staff who work at the hostel were extremely welcoming and flexible so I was still able to get to know Ahangama and do some fun activities. We had some amazing nights out as a team and with the guests and I would love to go back in the future

Volunteering at yoyos was really good! I was there during the off season so it was really quiet but it was nice to just chill. The work itself is super easy except I was hired as a social media host and when I arrived I found out I also had to be social host, check in people and team leader. The staff dorm is a 6 bed dorm with fans, it gets really hot at night time but you get used to it after a couple nights. You also get breakfast every morning and discounts on drinks at the bar. I would definitely recommend yoyos but maybe peak season would be much better as the area will be busier.
