Working at the hostel was an incredible experience from beginning to end. The staff is absolutely wonderful and well prepared to taking in new volunteers and help you at all times with everything that you may need. the hostel in its entirity is incredible. Beginning with the staff who are so patient, and supportive to volunteers in teaching them what must be done; to the common areas and dorms that are always very clean. Moreover, the vibe of the hostel is always amazing and interactive with people from all ages and nationalities. Would definitely recommend and hope all the best for them!
