The nice things about this experience are the location of the hostel, getting space to yourself, and having a mostly straightforward routine when it comes to work. Tasks included cleaning and changing beds. Often I received packages for the restaurant and communicated with maintenance staff (plumbers, AC tech, etc), so I do think volunteers benefit from knowing Spanish before working here. The hostel is not particularly social, and the important thing to know is you will be mostly on your own, as there is only one volunteer at a time and Angelica communicates with you through text.

The hostel is a small and charming hostel. It was perfect for my first solo trip! - this exchange was sustainable, fair, and light hearted. It's in a great location and has accessible amenities, perfect for remote work. Thank you!
