I had an amazing time at Wilka the hostel. The host family and especially kate are really welcoming and patient with first timers. The tasks I had to perform were all quite straightforward. The hostel itself has a very good vibe, and interactions with volunteers and guests alike was always great. If I had to point out a negative it would be that there was a bed bug problem for the time I was there. Despite this in can whole-heartedly recommend this volunteering opportunity to anyone interested. Especially if you're into surfing.

Had a great time living next to the beach and working in an overall relaxed environment. The family in charge really are great at creating an atmosphere where I felt comfortable. I would definitely come back again.

Tuve la suerte de formar parte de una comunidad muy linda, comenzando con la buena onda de los viajeros que llegan al hostel, mis compañeros con los que voluntarie y mis anfitriones tan gentiles que lograron desde el primer día que llegué que me sienta como en casa. Termino este primer periodo de voluntariados con el corazón contento. Espero seguir encontrando en los próximos voluntariados está misma buena onda . Fui muy afortunada ❤️ Emma 🕊️😻el hostel y a todes los llevo en mi corazón ♥️
