The experience was really good! The work in the reception is super organized, the people are very welcoming and the city is amazing! Unfortunately, I had to leave earlier than expected but it was a great experience! I totally recommend it :)

Fué mi primera experiencia como voluntaria y la pasé increíble. Nunca había trabajado en un Hostel o en recepción pero mis compañeros hicieron hicieron que aprenda en corto tiempo y si tenia alguna pregunta estaban ellos para ayudarme y Martín que es el q del equipo.
El grupo de voluntarios son de todas partes y es enriquecedor aprender sobre sus costumbres o escuchar las aventuras que tuvieron en voluntariados pasados.
El Hostel tiene una onda juvenil y hay eventos como conciertos o obras de teatro donde los voluntarios tenemos acceso gratis.
Lo recomiendo 👌

Fue una experiencia excelente. 3 meses de convivencia con personas de diversas nacionalidades, donde pude además de practicar mi español, hacer grandes amigos!!
San Sebastián es una ciudad increíble en el verano.
Gracias Martín y a todos por eso, vos extrañaré muchísimo!!

Conocer A Room in the City fue una de las sorpresas más lindas que tuvo mi viaje por Europa. Nunca pensé que podía encajar tan bien en un lugar desde el minuto cero. Hice amigos de diferentes partes del mundo, mejoré mi inglés trabajando en la recepción y pude disfrutar de San Sebastián y País Vasco durante mi tiempo libre. Quedé fascinada con la ciudad, sus paisajes y ¡las noches de pintxo pote! Sin dudas volveré en cuanto tenga la oportunidad. Los responsables de voluntarios, Martín y Estefi, son excelentes personas y siempre están dispuestos a escuchar y ayudar. ¡Gracias por todo!

This was my first Worldpackers experience and couldn't be better!
The hostel is huge, facilities are excellent and in a great location in San Sebastian.
Nice work schedule (I was in reception and doing nightshifts as well) and great staff of volunteers, we became like a little family and explore what the Basque country has to offer.
I would like to say thank you especially to Martin and Estefi, they were great hosts and I learned a lot from them.
Don't hesitate a minute to go there, you will love it, especially if it's your first time volunteering.
I will be back there for sure!
