Awesome experience working at this hostel. Lots of free time. Its a very clean and relaxed environment. The daily breakfast is stocked! You'll enjoy visiting the beaches and the manager Angel is a good guy who can teach you a lot about hosteleria. He likes when you socialize with the guests and make them feel at home as he does. The volunteer bedroom doesn't have windows but the fan makes a big difference.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to spend time on the beach and meet new people.

Miss Katia has turned out to be the most special volunteer of all those who have passed through this hostel. With a restless, fun and energetic personality, Katia has left her mark in this house. Her contagious laugh is still heard in the hallways and in the living room. I personally ... miss her so much. Thanks Katia.



Mi primer voluntariado y la mejor experiencia que podría haber tenido.
Desde que me postulé la comunicación con Ángel fue de maravilla, me recibió muy bien, me dió mi espacio y tiempo para que me acomode.
Trabajar con él y con Lucia fue de lo mejor, risas, charlas, historias y cafés a media mañana 🤩
Me llevo el mejor recuerdo de Santander y una amiga para siempre, Romane, quien fue voluntaria junto conmigo.
Espero volver pronto 💞

Camila, tú también fuiste como un suspiro de aire fresco en el albergue. Te adaptaste rapidamente, y supiste sacarle lo mejor a la experiencia. Fué un verdadero placer tenerte a bordo. Aquí dejas una casa... y amigos para siempre :)



Lamentablemente, recibí una confirmación y un mensaje del equipo sobre mi estadía, apalabrando una fecha en la cuál necesitaban ayuda, mas no cuadramos bien las fechas. Intenté comunicarme con el equipo a través de la aplicación sin respuesta durante días...sin éxito alguno. Cambié mis planes para voluntariado a otra ciudad.

Hola Edith. Lamentablemente, no pude abrir el hostel (después de 8 meses cerrado) ni contestar, ya que enfermé de Covid y estuve ingresado en el hospital (una semana). Lamento mucho la falta de comunicación y las circunstancias adversas (fuera de mi control). Ahora ya estoy bien y el hostel abierto (desde hace 1 semana) Quedas invitada a venir de voluntaria cuando gustes y (ahora sí) prometo comunicarme como siempre hago con los candidatos. Cuídate mucho.



Tuve una excelente estancia en Santander, Ángel es una gran persona que me hizo sentir como en casa desde el primer día. Las labores a cumplir son sencillas y la ubicación del hostel es privilegiada, recomiendo mucho esta experiencia.
