The hostel my casa is a really nice and open place to be. Daniel and his co-worker Milo are really welcoming and friendly and help you to learn a lot about the culture and the people. Confusing was that this explicit experience I applied in World Packers was only talking about the dogs. While it was obvious that I wouldn't do only this, I did not expected to have 5 x 5 normal shifts at the hostel and walking the dogs is kind of an extra u can do in your free time if u want to. While the work is really not hard there I am totally fine with this but I recommend to work over description

Even though it's hard work, I never felt forced, left alone or like in an employment. David, who is kind of the project leader, knows a lot about bio construction and is a pretty relaxed guy. We work together as a team, everyone adds to the work as they can and is always open to ideas, suggestions and compromises. The atmosphere under guests, team and host is very familial, we spent a lot of time going out, cooking or hanging out on the beautiful terrace. Blue and Choco, Daniels two dogs, are a very lovely factor aswell, they're very chill and always open to cuddle. Thank you guys!

Marta and Danny were lovely hosts and I got along with them! The work was really good and I created social media for both hostels. They gave me creative freedom and let me shoot and post on both accounts. I also got to work in the morning, which I preferred, so I could explore and have free time in the afternoon and evenings. Thanks Marta and Danny!

The hostel has a very relaxed and chilled atmosphere, the main task is keeping the hostel neat and be in charge of the reception which is really simple. Dany is kind, super friendly and has a really nice vibe!
