I had a great time volunteering at the hostel Surfers! The other volunteers I worked with were amazing and we had so much fun together and with all of the guests. The location is beautiful and the work is fine!

I truly enjoyed my time at the hostel! I wasn't sure what to expect but I think that the team was very inviting towards everyone and really encouraged the workers and guests to have a great time.

I truly enjoyed my time at the hostel! This experience afforded me the opportunity to meet travelers from all around the world and connect with locals. I've made life-long friends here, and would recommend this experience to anyone lacking true human connection in life. Tasks were doable but sometimes tedious, staff was friendly/ welcoming, and the beach/town is gorgeous. Great option for anyone looking to meet many people and take a break from the normal stresses of life. Plus the food is amazing 😋

Playa, fiesta, surf naturaleza pura y buena vibra seria el resumen de mi experiencia como voluntario en el hostel. Fui por el surf y pude surfear todos los dias El trabajo es muy facil y tranquilo y la comida esta riquísima y lo mejor de todo que conoces personas de todo el mundo mientras trabajas y tanto el staff como los manager son unas maravillosas personas que te hacen sentir entre amigos de toda la vida tanto a los voluntarios como a los huéspedes. Ojala poder volver en un futuro 100% recomendado
