To do worldpackers in this place was a incredible experience. It was my second home, the people were friendly. I learned and changed experiences with the other volunteers. I liked so much and recommended this place for other people. Thank you so much!

Rose is spectacular. If you look for a great worker and a good vibe she´s got it. Wish you a great trip my friend!



My frist volunteering experience! I felt very welcome! Job is not difficult, just a bit monotone but If you have good company of other volunteers you can always make it more fun with some conversation and music! You get to know and meet many new people, there is always something going on in the hostel! Very pleasent environment! Don't hesitate to aply 🥰🥰

We had a really good experience with John!! Very friendly and open minded person, when it comes to the tasks he was very ponctual and helpful. Recommended.



I had a great experience at the hostel thanks to the amazing people i have met during my stay.both the people who were working at the hostel and the other volunteers were really nice and friendly and i had a lot of fun with them.the hostel is really nice too,except for the volunteers room that could be better. The job was about ironing and making beds and time passes if you are with the other volunteers. If you want to surf the easiest way is to rent a board in one of the surf school at the beach.

The work task where chill and easy. The place felt like home, and was really safe. The social environment depends on how many voluntaries that are starting at the moment you are there. All the stuff wore super nice! The location of the hostel is a bit outside of the city. However, it is about 3 minutes away from the metro stop. We had a really nice time here!
