It was an amazing experience staying at the hostel, because I was able to enjoy a fantastic landscape, beautiful beaches, a very comfortable space and the wonderful hospitality of the hosts Ana and Cristian. Hard work that is worth doing if you like the sea, the sunsets, the surf and the tranquility. It was a volunteer job full of learning and very pleasant and fun moments.

Gracias Noémie mucha suerte



Ana and Christian are great people, nice and open minded. They own a big piece of land in a remote place near Salango (30 min downhill walk to town and beach, otherwise taxi) and they need help with building, maintenance and cleaning of the different the hostel they rent. Working day is from 8-13h. We spent the first 4 days refurbishing the terrace of one of the hostel: sandpapering and painting the wall and wood. The 5th day we cleaned the 5 the hostel (beds, bathroom, floor) and the shared kitchen. We slept in a bed in a small house, no picture of it in the app. It's nature so bugs around.
