It's a great place to be! The owner, Osvaldo, does everything he can to make you feel comfortable and welcome. We created real connectiona between the volunteers and him. He's a real hard worker, great host, great chef and awesome with the community. Actually in the lounge project we were helpers of his swimming classes for free for the community. Love Soga and I'll definitely be back.

I loved my time in Soga, I had so much fun! The staff always have great energy and they are super kind.
I have to confess, for me was hard to left that place. They have a great mission how is help the kids from town how to swim and talk in English (something that is really useful for their environment).
The host, Oswaldo, is flexible and considered. He always values a job good done and help you with everything that you need.

Mi estadía en el Hostel soga lounge fue muy especial. Me atendieron muy bien. El dueño Oswaldo siempre se preocupó que no me faltara nada a mí y a todos los otros voluntarios. Además de trabajar he aprendido a cocinar algunas comidas del lugar . Lo recomiendo absolutamente. Otra cosa a favor es que está al lado del mar y eso es muy bueno ya que en los ratos libres se puede disfrutar del mismo.
