The host, Lorena was great. The staff members were cheerful. They all made me a good work environment. Though I was in charge of a reception and a bar, the workplaces were where I could meet different people. By the way, tasks at the bar didn't require making a cocktail and were very simple. It was also a perfect location. The hostel stood very close to the city center. Supermarkets and restaurants were within walking distance. But, a spacious shared space, hammocks in the backyard, and a pool made me relax. You will be able to enjoy your stay while relaxing on the beautiful island.

I had a good time here at the hostel, while I was here I did my first diving of my life and it was one of the best experiences I have done in my life. The hostel is really quite and peaceful, as it is the island, staff and Lorena are friendly and helpful if needed. The work that needs to be done it's easy and not stressful at all. I would recommend it at 100%

The hostel is a Hostel with Focus on Diving/divers, so here u gonna meet a lot of people who are diving every day. For me it was great. I met so many cool, kind and lovely people in just one short month. The tile flew away :( Actually this hostel ist great except the beds for people over the average size (190cm) and there is not this much to do around the hostel as activities… maybe I am just uncreative :D All in all a great 9.9/10 because I can't compare it to other experiences and I don't want to give the 10/10 so early ^^ Just thank u for the great time. PS: The pool is an hidden ace!!

This is the most chill & relaxed volunteer you could ever do 😊 the job is very easy, only 10 minutes or less waking down to the seaside and you have enormous amount of free time to explore the island. It's a very nice hostel and Jordan and the staff are truly nice! I totally recommend it!
