Learning & Fun




Very nice host and staff. I had amazing days there.




As my first experience as a volounteer I really couldn't hope for anything better. It's been only one month but the greenhouse is my home. It really was like family. Thanks to all the staff and the other volounteers for making it such an amazing experience. Work is more than fair and if you like surfing this is the place for you. Everyone comes back!




I would totally recommend the experience at Greenhouse Hostel! It's an amazing place to stay. The staff and the other volunteers are so friendly that they make you feel like at home.




The whole experience of Greenhouse Hostel was absolutely lovely. From day 1 I felt completely welcome and integrated into the Greenhouse family of volunteers and employees, and I honestly couldn't have ever imagined being lucky enough to find such a fun, kind, and loving group of people. They made time absolutely fly by and it was very very hard for me to leave! I feel so grateful for my time here and am already planning to come back :)




Greenhouse Hostel has the potential to be a great place to stay and work - the hostel is spacious and has a great outdoor area, there are some lovely people working there, and the amount of hours you work is very well-defined. But there are some points of improvement. The communication between the management team and volunteers could sometimes have been better, for example. And the ratio of volunteers to guests was not always in proportion. That said, I still had a good time and I am thankful for the experience! With a few adjustments, this place can become awesome.
