The Experience

Somos un hotel canino. Los perros pasan días con nosotras mientras sus humanos van de vacaciones. El plan es: colaborar 3 días a full y descansar 4. NO ACEPTAMOS HOMBRES. Durante los días de voluntariado se ayuda con los perros, limpieza y mantenimiento. ¿Los días libres? A disfrutar! Pedimos una fianza de 20€ que será devuelta al final siempre que se cuide el material y el compromiso de voluntariado. Te damos ropa de cama, pero no toalla.

Graciar por tu ayuda y por tu energía, siempre a tope, Neka!!
Te deseamos lo mejor por Barcelona y avísanos cuando quieras venir a visitarnos!!! 💜



The host is a very welcoming place, does not matter where you come from, you will be welcomed there and treated with respect and understanding. Girls, who work there , love their job and are very commited to all fluffy guests. The tasks aren't difficult, the infrustructure is great, the location gives you a great opportunity for hiking and exploring the mountains while being really close to the sea. The schedule of working allows you to work hard during few days and then rest for few days. I would highly recommend this place if you wanna be around dogs and around young and energetic people.

An amazing experience, highly recommend to anyone who loves being away from the city and in the mountains. You spend time with amazing people with all sorts of backgrounds and the dogs are for the most part amazing. I do advise that you take the time to understand that you will be with dogs all the time while you are here and are AWAY from the city, if this doesn't suit you then this may not be for you. A humbling and loving environment, you will not regret your stay here, also make sure you speak Spanish and in return you'll also learn a bit of Catalán :)

Eres un amor Emma. Siempre vas a tener una casa en Barcelona. ♥️



Well this was my second experience as worldpacker... and i could said is one of the bes moments of my life. Irene and Ester are awesome girls, they made me feel like home, the job is easy but you need to have patient with the dogs, you can learn a lot in this place. Masnou is a near city to Barcelona, so i recommend you to come here with the best vibe and energy ! I will be back soon.
