The hostel is nothing less than an oase of peace and harmony filled with heartwarming people. While our volunteering we really felt like we joined a family. The work was as well planned and structured as the whole of the hostel and Travel is. When you volunteer here it's gonna be a experience you'll never forget in your live. We wish the whole Team of the hostel /Travel nothing but the best, they have a vision and we are convinced that they'll achieve big things in the future. And we'll definitely come back to the hostel to see that progress. ❤️❤️ Pura vida ❤️

The people in the community of Drake Bay are absolutely wonderful. I felt welcomed the minute I arrived. The volunteers were fun and very kind hearted as well. The only Issue about the hostel was I was not given a pillow for 2 weeks of me staying there, which means I was never given a pillow at all. The bed itself was far from comfortable as well. On the website, it claims one free meal a day. Which was not always followed through by. All in all, the people you will meet are great people. But the hostel does fall short in some categories.

L'expérience de volontariat à the hostel a été la semaine la plus enrichissante que j'ai pu vivre durant mon voyage au Costa Rica. Sol ainsi que toute l'équipe de l'hôtel ont été très accueillant et indulgent durant mon séjour. Si vous aimez la nature vous serez servis, l'hôtel est immergé dans un paysage magnifique. La seule petite remarque que j'aurais à faire c'est que sur l'annonce je n'ai pas été prévenue que je m'occuperais aussi quelques fois des clients de l'hôtel en faisant les check in ou check out, mais cela fait partie de l'expérience et ils restent indulgents

El hostel es un hogar en el medio de la naturaleza. Es un Hostel pequeño y la comunidad también lo es así que es todo súper familiar y te vas a sentir bienvenidx desde el primer día. Vas a poder conocer a Sol, a los chicos del Hostel y a muchos extranjeros divertidos que van y vienen. Una experiencia súper recomendable.
