I had an amazing experience. I loved spending time with the other volunteers. The hours allowed me to work on my own projects and gave me plenty of time to explore. Erin took us all out a few times and was always making sure we felt welcomed and were having a great time. Joshua, the manager, was also very welcoming and patient explaining the tasks. I felt at home and will miss all the friends I made.

I had such a wonderful time here! I got along very well with everyone! The volunteers that I met here were extremely fun to be around. Joshua and Erin were very patient with me, I could ask them anything! Erin is very kind and generous and really listens to us. It really felt like a team here! Colorado Springs is very good for hiking and for nature lovers. There is a lot of weird people who live in Colorado Springs. Housekeeping could be very overwhelming some days for me since we were slow on volunteers in the winter. I really enjoyed my stay here and learned a lot! Thank you very much!

I really enjoyed my time at the hostel. The environment caters to community and gives family vibes! Erin works hard to make sure that her volunteers feel welcomed & included. The accommodations are clean and inviting - big open kitchen for cooking and spacious comfy beds. The work is pretty laidback and easy to understand. I would give 4 out 5 for safety as a solo female traveler, and 5 out of 5 for the work experience. Overall, I recommend to the nature lovers, avid hikers, and adventure seekers.

This was my first volunteering and it couldn't have been better, Erin and Joshua are very friendly, they explain and help with tasks that are not difficult at all, the hostel is very cozy, the bus passes outside the hostel so in general it is quite easy to get to the shops and supermarkets, the hostel feels like a home, there are activities almost every day where you share with the guests and the other volunteers and have a great time, I definitely recommend the hostel and I hope to return one day c:
