El hostel es un lugar excelente para hacer un voluntariado, el equipo de trabajo es muy agradable, las tareas son sencillas y llenas de aprendizaje, tienes lo acordado e incluso más. Ángel es una persona muy paciente y amable, al pendiente de generar el mejor ambiente para todas, además siempre abierto a escuchar sugerencias en pro de mejorar, los tours que prometen se cumplen e incluso se pueden repetir, súper recomendado, volvería definitivamente. Si les gusta la fiesta, este es su lugar, pero si les gusta simplemente relajarse justo en frente del mar, también les cae perfecto.

Es un hostal en el que podrás tener mucha cercanía con la naturaleza y algo muy bueno es que te dan tours gratis o pagando solamente el transporte. Además, hay un ambiente de rumba todo el tiempo. Realmente la cercanía con las personas que trabajan allí es un poco complicada, las tareas y los horarios no son definidos, el ambiente entre el staff es un poco pesado. No me sentí tan bienvenida como voluntaria ya que no está todo el programa organizado para recibirla a una y tampoco están pendientes de hacerte sentir bien o saber cómo estás.
