Hostal Colibrí is a really nice place, quiet, in the nature, the place has a swimming pool, fishes swimming in a little lake. My room was clean and comfortable, they (Felipe and Tere) are generous and kind people, made me feel like old friends. Highly recommended.
That was my first Worldpackers experience, this community is a powerful tool to travel.

Good things: Felipe is a really nice and kind person. The “room” for volunteers, in my opinion, is disrespectful. It’s dirty, with mattress so thin that even putting 2 together you could feel the bed. The place is above the reception, where also happens events for the hotel, so, without warning we stayed up until 3am with really loud music, at least a warning would be nice. The meals included are confusing, you could have anything from the kitchen (messy one) but we were questioned about eating a bread one morning. The activities went fine and as agreed but I don’t feel it was a fair trade.

The job is really fun and a great opportunity to learn. The hostel is comfortable and a great place to relax. The staff is really nice and friendly, they make me feel home since the first day.
I am totally thankful for such an amazing experience!
