It's been my very first volunteer experience and it was really much better than I'd expected. I enjoyed being part of a kind team, I learned a lot about cleaning and housekeeping, I could practice my Spanish and I had a really nice, spacious and well-equipped room to stay in. The workload was absolutely fair, so I had a lot of free time to discover the city. Cuenca has a lot to offer! Lots of culture, nature and a beautiful the hostel with a lovely beach near the hostel. So, Juan, Elena and Dani, thanks a lot for your kindness, help and patience and I do hope to return soon! :)

I loved my experience at this hostel. Juan, Helena and Dani were so nice and welcoming. I felt very happy and relaxed here, the work was very fair. There's lots to do in the town. I'd highly recommend working here. The more Spanish you know the better but it's a great place to practice aswell !

I don't know how I can start describing my experience in Cuenca… It was simply amazing! Juan, Helena and Dani made the experience feel like home and i felt really cared. The job is easy and they have a lot of patience to teach you how to do it. If you have bad spanish as me they talk really slow and help you improve with the language. In my last days I got sick and they were very kind to me and offered to go with to the hospital and let me rest. I'm really happy about my experience in cuenca, couldn't have chosen better place for my first volunteering. Gracias por todo, nos vemos pronto!!

A great experience! the hostel is cosy, relaxed, and welcoming , and all staff are friendly and helpful :) The work is cleaning, which is quite physical job, but the hours were respected and the staff always help and work alongside the volunteers, so it was fine :) The volunteer accomodation is excellent! A lovely self-contained flat in the attic. The only inconvenience was that I expected individual accomodation, but in reality shared with two other volunteers (first one and then the other), however it worked out well. Overall an excellent first experience, and I recommend it!
