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%! (:

It was my first experience in WP and it couldn't be better. The atmosphere in there is very peaceful and familiar. The tasks are easy to complete and the schedule is respected. Besides that, the town is very interesting and because the hostel's location is in the center it's possible to walk around the city every day no matter in witch shift you are. Are, Sarain and Kami make you feel home so as the other volunteers, the whole team was always available if I had any doubt. I also had the chance to practice spanish a lot. I definetely had a very good time there !
