This hostel was a great first experience for volunteering and solo travelling. I met so many amazing people here. The whole team as well as the guests were all super friendly and made me feel welcome right from the start. The agreed tasks and working hours are met and there is always someone available in case you have any questions. I am so happy to have picked this hostel and I am sure I will come back again :)

This was my first volunteer experience and I couldn't have asked for a better one. Right away I was welcomed as a new member of the family, the other volunteers always willing to help. The hours were always met and in some cases rewarded with free lunches or additional days off. The hostel is welcoming, but living here obviously requires a little spirit of adaptation. I have spent two fantastic months and I will miss all the volunteers, the hostel and the island. Thank you Ventana.❤️

Mi experiencia en la ventana fue muy gratificante. Mi trabajo era en la finca y pasaba mis días en el hostel. Tuve la suerte de coincidir con un amigo y el trabajo fue más ameno. Hubo días en la finca que se nos hicieron pesados. Nada hubiese sido posible sin la coordinación de Pri, excelente persona que nos guió, ayudo, y mimo. Podría pasar horas escribiendo sobre estas semanas donde fui feliz. Gracias x todo lo compartido a Noe, Kirsten, Andrés, Laura, Alice, Day y Julia. Gracias a Pri por hacer nuestras jornadas más lindas y gracias Thomas por la posibilidad. Ojalá nos volvamos a ver!
