The Experience

I would definitely recommend it to everybody who likes nature and meeting new people. The Island is just the perfect place to destress. You work in the hostel by treating it as your own home, the other tasks you get depend in where your interests lay. The Host is just like family and they learn you a lot, questions or problems they are always ready to help. If you are as terrible as me in Spanish no problem, they speak English and French as well. It is easy to get on the Island by boat or by plane for a good price. Feel free to ask questions because you cannot mis this experience.

Me encantó esta experiencia. Me brindaron la oportunidad de conocer la Isla de El Hierro que es realmente bellísima!!

Hice un par de reportajes para mi web:



Y además aprendí sobre jardinería.

Tomas y Andrea, son una pareja muy amable y tienen una linda familia, junto a la pequeña Elena.

El proyecto de la casa está comenzando y tienen excelentes ideas que creo llevarán muy bien!

GRACIAS por todo!
