I wanna thank to all the people I met in Swanky. Most of them were friendly and made my stay fun and comfortable👍 I had a great time cooking at the super kitchen at the hostel :) Also I had a super fun time while working with the girls at reception and the guys in the bar. :) Pam, Philip, Anitaaa, Neno, Vale, Ante, Katy, and many others I cant remember right now. The tasks are not complicated, the schedule allows to do other activities. And if your native language is spanish you ll be surprised at noticing how many people in the staff speak some spanish (Telenovelas vocabulary jaj) Gracias!

Thiago was not only a great addition to our team; but he has such a great heart that we still miss him a lot as part of our Swanky family =) He was always attentive of whatever everyone might need at any time, go beyond everything required.
Thanks for choosing us to be part of your travelling adventures and we hope after a while you come back in your bike to tell us so many new stories!


I had my first experience as volunteer here, and was really positive.
This is a funny hostel, because there are two bars and the amazing swimming pool.
In this place i learned a lot, it need to be active because in the high season there are a lot of check ins and check outs per day.
