I had the best time at the hostel. Work - life balance is amazing. I did yoga every morning, swim, enjoy the sun and take content while doing it. Volunteers are so friendly and welcoming, we are like a small family. Food is diverse and really good! Workload was never too much, I had great time making and editing content with guests. Overall the hostel was my first volunteering ever and I 100% recommend it to everyone who wants to meet international travellers and live by the beach. Latino culture with the international spirit, love it :)

My volunteer experience at the hostel was overall very positive! Why? I felt welcomed by the staff and other volunteers the hours of work and tasks were respected the property (hostel structure, facilities and location were GREAT!) It was a very fair exchange (volunteering in exchange for accommodation & meals!)

Oscar is amazing. The company is very lucky to have him. I had an absolute blast and he was a large part of that reason.

My experience at the hostel was incredible! From the moment I stepped in, it felt like I found my home away from home. The managers, staff, and fellow volunteers made the entire experience unforgettable. The volunteers became my family and I got to meet many people and made friends from all around the world. For those considering hostel volunteering, here are some tips: Embrace the chaos, be prepared for anything, stay professional and, most importantly, keep an open mind. Working in a hostel is not just a job; it's a journey filled with surprises and new friendships. Thanks for everything!

Everything was perfect the people the staff the adventures, everything was perfect about the job, the only thing bad was the food, it was not to good, me and my co workers asked for something different but they didn't do anything different, everything was amazing but no if we're talking about food and also when I just applied I saw like different activities like a free drinks and free tours and I just asked for them, and they say no, so idk why they put that if they don't gonna give us that but after all that about tours and drinks and the food everything was like a dream, thank u the hostel monke
