My time in Tarifa at the hostel was amazing! During my time there, there were several other volunteers so we were all in the same situation and it was easy to make friends. The hostel owners and staff are so welcoming and friendly and I really felt like I was part of the team. They were flexible with which days off I wanted each week and were more than happy to help answer any questions I had about the work, given that it was my first time working in a reception position. Tarifa is a small town which means you can make friends quickly and always see people you know. 100% would recommend!

It was my first experience with Worldpackers and it was a dream! The environment is familiar, Marina and Veronica are fantastic as all the volunteers and guests of the hostel! I was sad to leave and would like to go back one day. Recommended to everyone🌹

Wow!!! the hostel is in my heart forever! My time with this lovely and incredible people was amazing. Marina and Veronica are great women and real friends. All the staff is super partner... An easy family to live with, and all the friends that "cowork" there. The work is pretty easy and everybody helps everybody. Not so many hours a day, 5 days a week, and a very flexible schedule to enjoy Tarifa and Andalucia as much as possible! The room has everything that you need and the hostel is super nice! Cocovibes and Cocolove! Thanks for every single thing Cocofamily!
