The hosts are learning how to create an engaging experience and pleasant experience, they work hard to accomplish this . They are putting in the efforts.

As a volunteer, I will say if you desire to explore palm springs and surrounding areas, hot springs, tramway then go for it.
When I went there there was only one other volunteer. I couldn’t fathom how they could possibly run the place with just one volunteer. The hosts look like they are in their 50’s.

You can tell that the hosts just got into this business.

Excellent place to rest, talk and learn many things, very quiet. If you speak Spanish and you don't feel safe with your English, it is a good place to practice. I never had any problems with the hosts and I felt very safe being there.
Thank you very much Sarah and John, definitely recommended
