The experience at the hostel was incredible!!! This was my first trip with Worldpackers and I loved everything, the structure of the hostel is excellent, the staff is great, Fabian the manager, is a very good and funny guy, Arlene and Rebecca were always very friendly and helped a lot in the housekeeping. The city is very beautiful, the night life of the city is very good with a lot of parties and pubs every day. Thanks for everything The ASH family and I will come back for sure

One of the best experiences of my life. Totally recommend it! The hostel is a great place to be, new and cozy, everything works. The staff is excellent, Fabian, John, Arlene and Rebecca are very friendly and willing to help. The job itself demands a lot of responsibilities but it's very funny and it was a great opportunity to practice my english and spanish skills, besides dealing with all the crazy and uncommon situations that can happen in a hostel. Volunteers are really nice also. Anyway, I'm grateful for this experience and if I could, I'd spend more than a month there.
