The hostel is in a very nice place, it has a swimming pool where you can relax and meet other travelers! The hosts are very nice people who try to make you feel like home especially Felipe! They also make you lunch and they are great chefs! It was my first volunteer experience but I really recommend this one! You can enjoy Quito (after a 30min) bus ride and the hostel is in a very calm and relaxed area !

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.

I totally recommend this experiences.Carlos was such a good host, he was flexible since de beginning. I took some extra day in Colombia and he was super ok with it. 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!
