I don't have caracters enough to explain how BAD of an experience this was. I wrote all about it and if you want more details, you can message me. They made me feel useless, wanted me to pay for accomodation because 'they don't need someone to be guided' when obviously you have to guide a person which is new at a hostel. The owner Martina was totally irresponsible and the first day told me literally before I arrived there 'I might now answer you, because I'm at a wedding and will get drunk' and such an amount of crazy and unbelievable things I had to listen to. Don't even consider this place.

2 girls from our staff have been trying for 2 days to show you how to accomplish your task. Unfortunately you have shown NO will whatsoever to learn how to do things. We have invited you for dinner and for drinks, and you complainted saying that "IT WAS TOO UNFORMAL" for you, that we were "taking too much confidence".

Yes we did expect you to pay your stay. that's how it works. If you help you stay for free. If you are not willing to help, than you pay accommodation like any other guest. But too bad that you run away without paying after you AGREED to stay at the hostel as a guest and not a worldpackers.


Un lugar increíble para vivir temporalmente si te gustan las playas y montañas hermosas, gente linda y divertida, la vida en un hostal con una magia única, tranquilidad y diversidad cultural ideal para hacer amigos de todo el mundo, tareas de todo tipo. Única sugerencia ser siempre claros y buena comunicación entre el equipo para dar siempre la mejor imagen y aclarar el tema de lo que incluye el intercambio. Fue una experiencia muy linda que seguro repetiría! Gracias por todo Martina y Ondaroad!

I just had an amazing time at Ondaroad and learned so many things that I couldn't imagine myself doing, for example, painting and gardening!
I've met very nice people and wonderful places! I'd totally recommend it if you wanna travel and still feel at home and if you want to chill in a place like a paradise!
