Be ready for one of the best experiences you are going to have. the hostel is a Hostel located directly at the beach and is one of the best Hostels I have ever been in. The Atmosphere is amazing and magical and the Staff are really welcoming. I stayed in the hostel for two months and I am going to come back again soon. I want to thank Maria, the staff and all of the awesome people and volunteers I met on this amazing trip. It was unforgettable, truly one of the best times of my life. I learned a lot from everyone and I am very grateful for having volunteered here! Gracias por todo!

The hostel is a paradise for any volunteer, it has everything you need and more! The staff members became a family to me, I met so many international travelers, I enjoyed so much my time here. I'm writing this review while I'm in the hammocks area enjoying my lasts days watching the sunset. I'm waiting for my poke bowl, the best meal ever in my lifetime. You literally can choose anything from the main menu, and you can't beat the location.I highly recommend this place to anyone that is manifesting a chill, relax and beautiful place to live in the caribbean sea. Namaste the hostel family.

I really had an amazing time at the hostel. The stuff is helpful, the food is good, the atmosphere is great and most importantly the group of volunteers that I ended up with was incredible. I want to say special thanks to our manager Bobby for everything. This place can also be a wonderful opportunity to practice Spanish and do Yoga in the mornings. Just note that the work can be demanding, you work 6 hours a day and the work environment is pretty professional. Anyway, I felt incredibly lucky and blissed for this opportunity. Go volunteer at the hostel if you have a chance!

My time at the hostel was incredible! The hostel is located in a great area with various activities for both the day but also with the nightlife. The work shifts were mainly to support the bar, restaurant and reception staff with different tasks so it was also an opportunity to learn some different skills. The food was excellent, everything was very well organised and you'll feel at home here. My favourite part about this experience was the team here, all the locals were so welcoming and friendly, special thanks to Bobby and Maria for everything - I cannot recommend this place enough!
