Hostel the hostel overall was great! The work was as said in the profile and very easy. I had plenty of time off to enjoy excursions and explore the area. Adrian and Bri are very kind people and made me feel welcome and my lack of spanish was not a problem. Even though the profile does not say meals included, there were several days where Adrian offered food to the volunteers which was nice because I was able to save money. I will say I unfortunately am traveling during the wet season so at a lot of points during my stay there were not many people to hang out with so keep that in mind!

I couldn't choose a better place for my first volunteering experience! Adrian and Bri are very nice people who truly care about their place and really made me feel at home. The work at reception was quite easy and I enjoyed it because I got to meet many travelers. The atmosphere at the hostel was very chill but there were always people around to talk to. I got along very well with the other volunteers and in our free time we always made plans to explore La Fortuna together or just relax at the hostel. I really recommend this experience and I hope to go back one day :)

It's the perfect way to meet people from all over the world. Adrian and Bri are lovely people. The hotel is always clean and has lots of facilities. The job is to do the check-in and check-out and make sure the hostel is always tidy. As a volunteer, we have plenty of time to explore La Fortuna and the many activities in the surrounding area. No time to get bored! I highly recommend this volunteering !

My experience at the hostel was amazing. The hostel is large and comfortable with a very nice kitchen. Adrian and Bri were great at checking in with me and answering any questions I may have. During the majority of my stay there were other volunteers which made for a very fun and social environment. La fortuna is a perfect town to stay in for a long time since there are endless things to do and it felt very safe for me as a solo traveler. The work was easy and a schedule for the work was given far in advance and they were very flexible with changes. I would 100% recommend this

Adrían and Bri are really nice people. I loved to stay at the hostel, the hostel is great and it's really easy to meet people there. The tasks are easy and with 5 hours a day, you still have time to explore the area. I recommend it, 100%. Muchas gracias 🤗
