I spent a total of 2 months in the hostel. The people working in the hostel were amazing and the manager, Angelica, is one of the sweetest people I've ever met! I do, however, recommend people to come here during the summer. As the hostel wasn't very busy when I was there. The job was not very difficult. There were 2 types of shifts: reception duty and cleaning duty. I worked max. 20 hours per week and sometimes less. If I ever worked more than 20 hours, I worked less the next week. I really enjoyed my time here. Big shout-out to Angelica and Chris. You guys are great! :-D

Such a fun experience here at Surf City Hostel!! The work was easy and the location was perfect. Angelica was a pleasure to work with along with the other volunteers who are now lifelong friends. I would definitely volunteer here again!!

I had the best time at Surf City Hostel! Angelika, the host, is really friendly and easy to talk to, as well as the other staff. The hostel itself is not very big but it's really well located and it feels like a second home. Overall I had and excellent experience, totally recomend it!

I had an amazing time at surf city hostel. Angelica, the manager, is friendly and understanding and the volunteers I met throughout my five weeks have become good friends to me. The hours were manageable and the job was not too difficult. The location was beautiful, just a few meters from the beach! There were plenty of restaurants and shops nearby too. I have no bad things to say about my stay and I am very grateful for the opportunity:)
