The Experience

Nuestro hostal está ubicado en Bucaramanga, una de las ciudades más tranquilas y seguras de Colombia. Aquí podrás conocer personas de todo el mundo, pasarla muy bien jugando ping pong, viendo películas en pantalla grande, entrenando, descansando en nuestras hamacas o saliendo a recorrer los parques y cascadas de la ciudad. Si tienes habilidades para pintar o dibujar murales quisiéramos contar contigo!

i really enjoyed my time at zamia hostel. it was my first volunteering experience and i couldnt recommend it enough. Because you work at night your will have the whole day to enjoy Bucaramanga and go out with the people you meet at the hostel. The tasks where also pretty easy and didn't really feel like work. Thank you to all the people working at zamia for the awsome experience and for making me feel at home!

Desde que llegue a Zamia, recibí una bienvenida calurosa. Ese mismo día recibí las indicaciones de la tarea a realizar. Quiero destacar la colaboración del equipo, el respeto de los horarios establecidos, siempre estuvieron pendientes a mis necesidades a nivel personal y laboral.

Bucaramanga es un lugar espectacular. Recomiendo a Zamia, para ser voluntariados pues desde que llegas te hacen sentir como parte de la familia. Lina, Siempre se preocupo por mi antes, durante y después de mi llegada. Marcello es un sol de persona, también estuvo atento a cualquier inquietud que surgiera.

Cesar y todo el staff de Zamia son demasiado amables, se convirtieron en una familia para mi. Los días en el hostal no fueron nunca aburridos, siempre hay viajeros de todas partes y personas increíbles para compartir, además todos los espacios son ¡Wow! están pensados para ser verdaderamente acogedores y cómodos. El clima para las actividades es flexible y amigable. En realidad es más difícil tener que decir adiós, pero volveré pronto, me llevo muy buenos recuerdos y experiencias.
