Good things: Felipe is a really nice and kind person. The “room” for volunteers, in my opinion, is disrespectful. It’s dirty, with mattress so thin that even putting 2 together you could feel the bed. The place is above the reception, where also happens events for the hotel, so, without warning we stayed up until 3am with really loud music, at least a warning would be nice. The meals included are confusing, you could have anything from the kitchen (messy one) but we were questioned about eating a bread one morning. The activities went fine and as agreed but I don’t feel it was a fair trade.




I totally recommend this experiences.Carlos was such a good host, he was flexible since de beginning. I took some extra day in Colombia and he was super ok with it.
The job is really fun and a great opportunity to learn. The hostel is comfortable and a great place to relax. The staff is really nice and friendly, they make me feel home since the first day.
I am totally thankful for such an amazing experience!




El tiempo que pasé fue magnifico, las tareas sencillas el anfitrión súper atento siempre recibí todas las facilidades necesarias para disfrutar de mi estancia, es un buen lugar paa desconectarse y descansar de la vida citadina, espero en algún momento volver sin cuarentena de por medio, quedo completamente agradecido.




Felipe y su familia me han acogido con los brazos abiertos. Me he sentido una más en Colibrí, he podido aportar y mis ideas han sido bien recibidas.
Felipe es encantador, me ha ayudado muchísimo y ha facilitado que pudiera hacer turismo acercándome a Quito cuando podía y yéndome a buscar al bus cuando volvía muy tarde (mil gracias, de verdad!:))
Especial mención a doña Tere, un amor de persona. Me he reído mucho con ella y me la llevo en el recuerdo, a ella y a sus lecciones sobre lenguaje ecuatoriano <3
Las tareas son sencillas y el entorno es precioso, recomendable 100%
