I had the best time at the hostel!!! From the moment I arrived, I was warmly welcomed by the best staff ever!!! (Loads of kisses to Clara). I cannot stress enough how much I love the staff and other volunteers here; the atmosphere with them made it feel like we are a family. The volunteering itself is fun and flexible :) The location is very convenient, close to the beach and metro station. I highly recommend this experience. Words can't describe the wonderful time I had here!!!Thank you, Gaspar, for having me🥰 🫶🏼
