This was my first volunteering experience and the hostel was really amazing. All the staff was kind and inclusive with me, make me feel always safe and part of the family. The place is cozy and comfortable, in a nice area close to the city centre. Every person who works there is helpful and polite. I had a really good experience, I already miss all of them a lot!

I was a volunteer in Sunflowers in June/July and this period was really amazing! For some weeks I was volunteering in other place in the morning and volunteering in the Sunflowers bar in the evening. I have to say that the Sunflowers team is always going to do the best thing for you! Hans, Cardi and Augusto were working there with me almost every day and all of them have something to add in your life. You will learn a lot! Talking about the work, the shift starts at 5pm and goes until 11pm, but most of the time we stay more with the guests. The tips also help you. It was fantastic!!

The job is very easy and allows you to meet people from all over the world and practice your english. The hours are also great, I am a digital nomad and I was able to work and enjoy myself no problem. The hostel is very comfortable and has everything you need. The people are wonderful and I miss everyone already!
