It was a great experience! my first oficial volunteering and it had the best time in my life so far. I could meet people from many different countries, share information and experiences about our self cultures, and having the opportunity to know the world from the guests' life, made me change my perspective. Last but not least, shootout to Cata, the manager of the hostel, a great human being, with a unique energy and perspective, the keystone of the project and the leader of it. Best place in the world!!!

Fue mi primera experiencia como voluntario, y fue muy chévere, las personas del hostel muy agradables. Y los administradores Kata y Emilio son personas súper bacanas, son comprensibles, flexibles y además muy chéveres. Es un ambiente en donde te hacen sentir bien a la larga, y agarras cariño a la gente de ahí.

Es cierto que el hostel está en proceso de cambio y mejora, y creo que al coincidir nuestra estadía con este proceso la experiencia fue algo distinta. Sin embargo, pienso que estos cambios son sin duda a mejor y los voluntarios del futuro lo notarán. Es un lugar super divertido con un rollo bastante único y la ubicación perfecta para conocer Medellín. Repetiría sin duda.

Uno de los mejores voluntariados en los que he estado. El trabajo es relajado y Katta y Emilio son geniales. Nos han acogido muy bien y realmente me he sentido cómoda en este lugar. ¡Me hubiera encantado quedarme más tiempo! La ciudad es increíble y, aunque sean 6 días de trabajo, se pueden hacer otras cosas perfectamente. Incluso yendo en pareja se puede aprovechar bastante. Son flexibles a la hora de hacer los horarios, aceptando tus sugerencias. La gente del lugar es muy interesante y nos hemos podido echar unas buenas risas. PD: ¡Mucho cuidado en el metro porque te pueden robar!
