I had an amazing experience here at HiTide. The other volunteers and the manager and owner were all lovely, the work was as specified and extremely flexible. I loved my time here so much I have ended up staying for another month. The island is beautiful with a huge range of things to do.
In terms of the hostel itself it was super clean, nice and had a great vibe. We offered activities like surfing and yoga where we could also get involved along with guests which helped to create great connections with people. I highly recommend it here!

This experience will bring you into a cozy and well-organized hostel located right next to the beach. As the hostel will be full of travelers it will bring more of an international rather than Spanish feeling but that is expected when you go to a hostel, right? A warm welcome from the host and transparent working hours and expectations. Perfect if you want to spend time surfing, playing beach volley or any other beach activity as the location cannot be better. Alternatively, you can enjoy rooftop and night activities. Recomend!

I can't do more than recommend this place! I spent one month in this hostel volunteering. The schedule and tasks are so logical & figured out intelligently and what you receive in return is more than fair. I never felt like they asked for too much nor that I did too little- it is the perfect balance for a hostel volunteering. I got great discounts for yoga and surfing and the team spirit was amazing. All of this would not have been possible without the best manager Max!!! Gracias y nos vemos pronto ❤️❤️❤️

My volunteering experience at Hitide Hostel was beyond expectations: the tasks are easy and well explained, the work schedule is optimal and you have a lot of free time to go to the beach, go surfing, or chill on the beautiful rooftop, where I saw the best sunsets ever; the hostel is just amazing, the manager Max is very nice and easygoing :) I’m grateful I had the opportunity to volunteer here, it’s a magical place, all the people I shared this experience with hold a special place in my heart <3 Thank you HiTide!

I loved my time in this hostel ! It was my first experience volunteering and it was perfect.
I directly felt like home. The other volunteers, the manager, the owner and the guests are awesome. The place is great and perfectly located. The work is not difficult but never boring. I had enough free time to explore the island, socialize with guests and rest.
I am really glad that I could live this experience, I can only recommend it, all my love to HiTide and thanks for everything ❤️
