The hostel is an Amazing place! A paradise in Palomino. They welcomed me and the staff was all so nice to me. That was wonderful. Because all that I left early, this because I was expecting a Hostel with multiply backpackers rooms/dorm. But there is only one, the rest are all private rooms. Maybe I should have done better research before. But the days I was there were beautiful. the hostel is a small hostel, can be quite and not much work to do but is also relaxed. Thank you the hostel for the experience.

The hostel it's been one of the most iconic experiences I've ever had. The hostal is beautiful, the staff members and team are very kind and lovely. I could learn more about my country and explain the culture to travelers from all around the world. If you have a hippie soul you must try to volunteer in Palomino. A paradise in the Caribbean coast in colombia. Thanks to Bryan and Hegel for this amazing opportunity!

I had such a great time at the hostel for my first stay. Everyone was very welcoming when I arrived, and made me feel very at home. The first thing to note is how clean the hostel is, by far the nicest place I've stayed on my 4 month trip to southern America! The hours were very manageable, and the team was great fun to work with. By the end I had really improved my Spanish and learned a great bit of Colombian cooking! Thank you to Hegel, Bryan, and the rest of the team!

Alex was an exceptional volunteer at our hotel. He consistently demonstrates a high level of responsibility in his tasks, showing initiative and a drive to constantly learn more. Additionally, his teamwork is unparalleled and he always impresses us with his dedication and professionalism. There is no doubt that Alex was a valuable asset to our hotel and we are greatly appreciative to have him on our team. We are goind to miss him so much!

The experience at the hostel was good. It is a clean, beautiful space, and the staff is super nice. It's a good place to practice Spanish too. If you need to work or if you're needing some rest durong your trip, I highly recommend it, because the place is calm and relaxing. I would suggest agreeing on the schedule beforehand because it wasn't really functional for the work and for the volunteers.
