The place it's great! Very cozy and welcoming, the cleaning and cooking ladies are great people. German it's a great host, very welcoming, open to talk and nice person. I would recommend to volunteer in this hostel if you are looking for a great experience, immerse in the local culture, meet people and have fun.

El tiempo que estuve en este hostal lo disfrute muchísimo:), el ambiente es muy tranquilo y lo recomiendo si estas buscando un lugar para relajarte. Las instalaciones son muy cómodas, tanto de habitaciones como de zonas de jardín y de recepción, el lugar se encuentra a unas cuantas cuadras del centro de San Cristobal lo que hace que tengas un acceso rápido a los mercados y sitios de mayor concurrencia. También sirven desayunos super ricos, hechos por las Marís, quienes igual son muy amables y le agregan un toque al lugar, gracias por su compañía y apoyo <3.

Gracias el hostel por estos días en San Cristobal! El hostel y sus instalaciones son super cómodas, el jardín es la parte mas linda! Aprendí mucho y mejore jugar al pool y dardos 😅 Las tareas y horarios se respetaron siempre. El equipo de voluntarios que me tocó fueron super chidos y tambien están las Marys que te preparan el desayuno cada día, compartir ese momento del dia todos juntos fue lo mejor ❤️ La comunicación con German siempre fueron 10 puntos, atento a todas las cuestiones. Gracias Ger por recibirme! Me llevo un pedacito en mi corazón de san Cris y el hostel💫

El lugar es súper lindo y cómodo, todos me trataron super bien, el trabajo fue sencillo, el ambiente del lugar fue muy agradable, Aunque no soy tan amante del frío, San Cristóbal me pareció muy mágico ❤️ Por desgracia no pude quedarme el tiempo deseado, aún así volvería a este lugar 🫶✨ gracias por la buena experiencia

Me encantó estar en the hostel, las instalaciones son confortables, el jardín es bello, conocí a gente muy linda. Ademas, está súper cerca del centro de San Cristobal y de la iglesia de Guadalupe, en dónde puedes admirar el atardecer. Me llevo una grata primera experiencia como voluntaria. Gracias 🤩
