San Sebastián was my first volunteering experience and I couldn't have landed on something better. It was truly amazing. The hosts were wonderful and the other volunteers were very welcoming. The team is very accomodating and mindful. The job is simple and can easily be done, the rest of the time you can just enjoy the hostel. I loved it and would absolutely recommend it to anyone. Thank you for everything Martin and Estefi!!!
