I definitely enjoyed my time at the hostel. The work was super chill, and the hosts Sarain and Are were super friendly and helpful. At times, I found the hostel to lack a social atmosphere, but overall, I had a good experience.

Sarai, Areli, and Kami couldn't have been better! I really felt like a part of the fam, and I will miss them all dearly! The tasks were easy and straightforward. They did an awesome job with scheduling, and they really respected your time! Overall an epic experience, and it wouldn't have been the same without those 3 awesome humans! Definitely recommend!

I had a great time at the hostel. It's a family hostel run by Areli and Sarain, who are amazing people and treat everyone like a part of their family. I'm very happy to have met them, as well as meeting the other volunteers. As I volunteered in the low season, the work was not heavy. Tasks are preparing breakfast, making beds, cleaning common areas and bathrooms, and staying at the reception. The breakfast given is very simple, so I had to buy other things to complement it. Despite that, everything was great! Recommend 100%! (:
