I stayed for a little bit more than one week in the hostel. The village is very cute and the lagoon is absolutely amazing. The house of Lorenzo is really beautiful and clean. Nevertheless there are some points which were not as I expected. In the end I left some days earlier, because I had the opportunity and Lorenzo was very empathetic about that and it wasn't a problem. :)

It was nice place to stay 🌞 you will work alor alone after you were explained what to do. I worked from 11-15/17 depending how fast I was. job was to make beds, clean up toilets, kitchen and floors. i would say it's pretty easy work.
