This is a great hostel in a great location with a great group of staff and guests. I initially arranged a month here, but then extended it for another month. The shifts are relaxed and in line with what's agreed with Esther on the initial call, and they are usually in the morning or evening so you have lots of time during the days to go out and do things. There's a sociable breakfast on the roof-top terrace for staff and guests where people often meet and make plans for the day, plus there are a few days each week with a small social event.

Absolutely have loved my time here at the hostel. Cassandra, Lalo, and José all impacted me in such a beautiful way! I am so thankful to have made friends from around the world here. Esther is extremely accommodating in terms of arranging your schedule so that you're able to explore on your days off! I would love to come back, and could not recommend this experience enough :)

Esther was incredibly kind and understanding! I hurt my foot during my stay and could barely walk and the team let me take the time to care for it (Btw the hostel is up 4 flights of stairs). I would recommend this hostel and I'd love to come again!

I can definitely recommend the hostel as a worldpackers experience! The volunteers and the staff that I got to know were great. Esther is flexible with scheduling, I had a few unexpected things come up and she was very supportive with those issues. Cassandra is also a very kind staff member who helped me go to the doctor with a Spanish-speaking volunteer when I got extremely sick. The work is fun and easy, and there are clear checklists to follow. My favorite thing about the hostel is that they are always trying to improve and they are open to feedback from guests. Miss them already! :)
