I've had a great time in the hostel. The job was fun (mostly talking to the guests), the staff and the volunteers were amazing from the beginning. Usually there are a lot of volunteers which makes it easy to find like-minded people.

There was a problem, a couple of Colombians robbed the Caixa. The owner was very angry and was rude with me. I found it an unpleasant situation, because I was always kind to everyone and performed my duties WELL. In the evening via WhatsApp I asked about the schedule for the week and said that I would like to stay for two more days and leave due to the discomfort I had left.He was indignant and said that I helped the Colombians. It was a shame because it didn't need to end like this. I believe that problems or failures can happen, but with a good conversation everything can be resolved.

You started your shift in the morning and noticed not only that the money was missing but also that the people who took it were gone and DID NOT INFORM ANYTHING until 5 hours later when the manager arrived. Truly unbelievable. The worst is that you were upset because you thougth the manager was rude to you just for asking you why you did not inform. Not only that you can not take responsability for your neglect but also create more problems and false accusations. I would not recommend anyone anywhere to host such an irresponsible and conflictive person as you.

I got to spend almost a month at the hostel and I can truly say I am changed forever. The staff and volunteers are really the best, and if you take the time to get to know everyone you'll understand why. (Shoutout to Rebeca <3) The volunteer kitchen also just got an upgrade, and I know that the owners are really trying to make this place great and have cool plans for the future. I recommend this to someone who is willing to engage in the culture and be open to help out when they can. The terrace is amazing with the best view! Oh and don't forget to listen to Mauri sing! I'll miss you all!!!

Thank you Kat and Santiago for this great time! I felt really welcomed and respected throughout the stay. The most amazing thing for me is that the working hours are known beforehand, they are quite flexible and you work exactly what was indicated (and the work is really easy and chill!). I got to meet many guests from all around the world and other volunteers. I also had more than enough time to travel around the city (thank you Kat for the advice and lifehacks!). One thing that bothered me a bit was the condition of the kitchen. Still, all in all, it's a very nice place :)

The hosts are just lovely, they are really trying so you can have a great time. I had some problems to deal with and they helped me wherever they could. They are really flexible with the working hours and you can easily da 3 day trip over your 2 free days and it might even be possible to da 4 day trip. The food from the cook is amazing and there is basically some event every evening, but one. All in all I would recommend this voluntary to anyone, because you have the advantage of a city and can escape into the mountains or the jungle whenever you want.

The hostel was a great place for my first volunteer opportunity, Kat and Santi are such great people and they were so willing to help throughout my exchange. The staff and other volunteers were all so friendly and really create a fun and laid back atmosphere. The hostel has a nice rooftop area with a firepit and amazing views of Quito as well. The hostel may be just getting its feet underneath it but I enjoyed my time and I hope to return someday!

Experience was awesome! The hostel is just getting on its feet after having moved into this location a few months ago, so there are still a few growing pains they're working out. Kathleen is amazing to work with! I think the volunteers could use a BIT more guidance on the local attractions upon arrival, as guests would often ask questions I was unsure of how to answer. The facilities for volunteers were also a little worse for wear; the showers specifically aren't great, same with the kitchen. But overall, my time there was very relaxing, and Kathleen is just awesome to be around!

I stayed for more than 3 weeks at the hostel in Quito, and I had an amazing time ! Kat and Santiago are very caring and super nice, they make sure you feel good here and do everything they can for you to enjoy your stay. There are many other volunteers in the hostel from all around the world, which is great to meet new people and work in team ! Everynight we have dinner all together (with the volunteers ans guests) and have a great time. The hostel is clean, volunteers have their own bathroom, kitchen and dormitory, and we really feel part of the team. The hostel is also very well located !
