As my first volunteer experience, the hostel was the perfect hostel because I got to meet amazing people in a beautiful district. The hostel is beautiful, it offers so many services and the schedule is flexible, which allowed me to travel during my stay. The social events are amazing and really diversified. 10/10

This was my first ever world packer experience and I could not have asked for a better one. The team here are the nicest, most welcoming and friendly people, they were happy to answer any of my questions and show me places to eat or shop. The bar was a great place to work, super fun and straightforward. My room was really comfy and the breakfasts and dinners were great too. My three weeks here were amazing, I've met the most incredible people and got to see my new favourite city. ¡Muchas gracias!

Volunteering at the hostel was some of the best 3 weeks of my life! At first, the language barrier made it slightly challenging to communicate and connect with others. But over time, and with a willingness to overcome this challenge, I found the staff of the hostel to be some of the most kind, considerate friends I've made through traveling. the hostel presents a warm, welcoming space with beautiful art and decor, fun events involving locals, comfortable accommodations, good food, and so much more!

This was my first ever work exchange and I couldn't have chosen a better place for it. The host and team were all incredibly welcoming, easy to work with and happy to answer my questions. The work was straight-forward and as agreed upon. The hostel is in a central location with everything you could need in walking distance. The room and provided meals were great, and the evening events were fun and engaging (my favourite being the Salsa classes!). I thoroughly enjoyed my time volunteering at the hostel. Muchas gracias!

3 weeks in Lima volunteering at the hostel at the bar was one of the best experience in my trip and in my life ! Not because making cocktails is fun, but more thanks to the guys with who I was working with. I recommend it ! If you want to have an incredible experience in Peru, you are at the best place here ! Thank you so much !
