I really enjoyed my time here. Lara and Lautaro are very kind and generous people that took great care of me during my stay. They made sure I had lots of fun outside the work hours, and the work itself wasn't too bad. They were very respectful of my time. I was also provided with plenty of food to serve as a base for my meals which was really awesome. The area is great for hiking and site seeing, so I really recommend this if you're looking to stay in La Fortuna while working for your accommodation. One of my favorite stays in Costa Rica!!

This was my first time volunteering in a hostel and I really enjoyed my time at the hostel. The first few days were a bit difficult but once you get used to everything it's very chill work. During the month I spent here I could go on various tours for free or on a discounted price which was really nice. Lara and Lautaro are great hosts and I can really recommend coming to the hostel!

Lara and Lautaro are amazing hosts, they welcomed me in so quickly and by the end of my time I felt like family, I simply couldn't have asked for a better a first volunteer exchange. The hostel is clean and everyone is kind and patient. I'd recommend it anyone who enjoys meeting new people and enjoys immersing in a new culture. Between pizza nights and days spent exploring the little town of La Fortuna, and meeting people from ALL OVER the world, I had a wonderful time and I couldn't say anything negative about the days I spent here. My only regret is I didn't stay longer ;)
