It was my first experience with worldpackers and I absolutely recommend this hostel! Everybody is very friendly and they are like a family. I felt part of the group since the first day. The work is as they explain 4-5 hour for day, never more. The managers are always ready to help you in the work and in your free time.
You can see other amazing places staying for free in other part of the island.
Absolutely recommended!! 🧡

The experience was amazing. First time living in a hostel and it was great. I met people from all over the world. In Columbus everyone is welcoming and great. I loved everything and everyone. There are a lot of events during the week so you can know better the people who are living with you.
The 25 hours per week are fully respected, not a minute more. The tasks are not so hard, so everybody can do everything.
It was the best experience of my life and I didn't want to leave that amazing place

Everyone there is always friendly and kind. We were able to discover new cultures and ideas and we met people from everywhere. They were able to make us feel at home from the very first moment! The working hours were always respected and the job was clear and well explained. You have good discounts on drinks when the bar is open and you can sleep at other hostels in the island for free!
They also organized several events like sangria night, volleyball tournaments or barbecues…
Always very fun and cheap!
Thank you so much Columbus we will miss you a lot ❤️ 🤌🏼

My stay in Columbus Rooftop Hostel for a month has been amazing! The hostel is clean, organised and it's located in the historical district of Vegueta, close to everything. The other volunteers were very friendly and helpful and we did many fun activities together and the managers are very kind, flexible with the time schedule, always ready to support you and let you live the best experience. Highly recommended 😊
