My first experience and it couldn't have gone better. The job was easy and just a few hours of work per day, which left a plenty of free time to explore the area. The other volunteers were very friendly and welcoming, and I met amazing people from all over the world. The flat is lovely, with an excellent location. I can't thank Caro enough for choosing me, and I would also like to thank Anja and Fer for the great conversations and music we shared. I had a great time at the hostel and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a rewarding and fun way to get to know Barcelona.

PERFECT to enjoy the perfect Barcelona! Pros: The hostel is located well in a residential area, lots of bars and cafes. The flat is 15 mins walk. Fernando and Caro are very amiable people who'll support/help you all the time. Some pocket money + transportation card!! Easy tasks. Cons: Far from the beaches. The housing is just OK. The night shift can be fatiguing in many ways! - the reason it's 4 stars, cause it's also 40 hours a week. And the organization can be a bit unfair. It's ok if you don't take it personally/seriously. Thank you, the hostel! It was an awesome experience :D

I worked at the hostel for about 7 weeks. The tasks mainly included: changing ~8-25 bed sheets, cleaning bathrooms, showers, floors, lockers, and taking out trash. I found the work difficult for the first few weeks and would finish in 5 hours instead of the supposed 4, but Alejandro and my other coworkers were always very understanding/encouraging. The apartment was nice, in a safe neighborhood, 15 minute walk to the hostel. Only issue was no working air conditioning. I highly recommend this opportunity as I had lots of time to explore Barcelona and make some truly meaningful connections.
