I had a amazing expérience here! It where long hours. But the atmosphère was very good. The staff was super nice and helped me with everything. The tasks are easy once you understand. The helped me with my spanish but also with getting to know montañita! I really loved it here and i for sure want to come back an other time. It is a party hostal so you should like to party and have a go big or go home mentality. But thats for montañita in general the mentality ;).

Had an amazing time working there, the working days were long but I liked the people, place, vibe. There was no food included but that wasn't a problem 'cuz there is a little mini markets around were food wasn't expensive at all. the kitchen was PERFECT, as well as the rest of the accommodations. Watching iguanas falling from the trees was a everyday show, as well as watching Jack (un gato gris, gordo y belloooo) sleeping. If Montañita gets too much for you there is alway, Olon, Ayampe, los frailes and other beautiful beaches to visit.
Love Hidden, Love Montañita.

the hostel was unique, and very clean. the volunteers were friendly and jose, one of the staff, was very funny and friendly, and we found ways of communicating through the language barrier in funny ways! mostly using google trabslate haha. The vibe was great, ways playing music, and you get commission for bringing guests. The teo negatives were the job, which was trying to get people off the bus to come to the hostel, and when i left, it was early and the might manager didnt have access to the money to give me my commission.

From Free surf lessons, entrance to clubs, drinking games and slacklining to listening to all travellers', volunteers' and hosts' stories and experiences, Hidden House is a lively hostel with lots to offer.

The volunteering tasks are collaborative and fun, which makes them educative, as you get to learn and practice new languages when working with the guests, and showing them around.

It also is a great place to watch Iguanas, meet new travel partners, and have lots of fun.
