Ecuador

Had an amazing time working there, the working days were long but I liked the people, place, vibe. There was no food included but that wasn't a problem 'cuz there is a little mini markets around were food wasn't expensive at all. the kitchen was PERFECT, as well as the rest of the accommodations. Watching iguanas falling from the trees was a everyday show, as well as watching Jack (un gato gris, gordo y belloooo) sleeping. If Montañita gets too much for you there is alway, Olon, Ayampe, los frailes and other beautiful beaches to visit.
Love Hidden, Love Montañita.

El hostel en cuanto a relacion precio calidad lo encontre super bueno, muy bonito con variadas areas comunes y de entretencion a libre disposicion, servicios higienicos muy limpios al igual que la cocina, eso si cuentan con un solo refrigerador el cual jamas nadie limpia, en cuanto al voluntariado, lo rechaze luego de trabajar un turno, ya que lo considere abusivo tomando en cuenta que se debe trabajar 6 hrs 5 dias solo por alojamiento ( no comidas) el cual solo vale 6 dolares, en resumen, es como trabajar y que te paguen 1 dolar la hora, aun asi que quede como huesped unos dias, fue genial 😋

El lugar es increíble. Hay mucho contacto con la naturaleza y hamacas. La esctutura tambíen es buenissima, la cocina es bien equipada y las habitaciones muy comodas. Podria ser un buen lugar para relaxar pero a ellos le gustan mucho la musica eletronica entonces era todo lo que escuchavamos todo el dia. Además, como habia muchos voluntariados y pocos hospedes, mismo que el combinado fue quedarme en la reccepicion, tuve que hacer pintura y otras cosas más, lo que foe un poco cansativo. Los voluntarios tienen que trabajar 6 horas por dia de las 7 hasta 1, 1h30 hasta 7h30 o 6h30 hasta 00:30.

the hostel was unique, and very clean. the volunteers were friendly and jose, one of the staff, was very funny and friendly, and we found ways of communicating through the language barrier in funny ways! mostly using google trabslate haha. The vibe was great, ways playing music, and you get commission for bringing guests. The teo negatives were the job, which was trying to get people off the bus to come to the hostel, and when i left, it was early and the might manager didnt have access to the money to give me my commission.
