Needless to say, I got nothing but gratitude to Jorge the owner, the Manager Jhonny, and the rest of the staff that works in BOH at the hostel, Joffre, Grego, Monica, and Pepe. My stay was made so much fun for the whole month due to the great number of people that I've met, the people that I worked with, and the whole experience overall.
Tasks at hand are super easy to learn and do, and there's plenty of time to take care of your own things the rest of the day.
I recommend the HOSTEL 200%, Volunteers or guests! Shani and Pablo, miss you tons!
Jorge, Gracias Nhanho por todo
Best wishes!

My experience at Esperanto hostel was better than I had imagined. The staff is very friendly, Rocke (manager), Pepe (security) and Jorge (owner) are very kind and patient people. They will always help you, and they are very funny, which makes everything much easier. The hostel is so nice, it has a great terrace overlooking the sea where you can enjoy the sunset from a hammock. In that place a very good vibe is generated. If you are thinking of going to Montañita, I recommend you to be a volunteer at this hostel. I want to come back some day!

Esperanto hostel es la.mejor experiencia que puedes tener en montañita. El hostel es lindo, organizado, con una terraza hermosa y bien cerca a la playa. Los horarios de trabajo y descanso están bien diferenciados y se respetan. Las tareas no son complicadas y siempre contas con ayuda del staff. Roque, el encargado, es una persona genial. Gracias Roque y Jorge por estar siempre atentos a lo que necesitaba. Recomiendo pasar por esperanto para un voluntariado en montañita.

Estimado Ariel, un gusto trabajar contigo, gracias por la buena onda y por tu colaboracion, te ira bien en todoso los lugares donde vayas , el merito no es nuestro, sino tuyo totalmente, sabes que pedimos perfiles de personas AAA, que sean responsables, proactivas, alegres, sinceras y dispuesta a aprender , buen viaje y exitos en todo lo que emprendas y esta es tu casa, cuando quieras regresas , ya sabes, te esperamos =)



Lastimosamente no lo recomiendo para hacer voluntariado, la manera de ser del anfitrión hace que te sientas incómodo en el lugar. Lo demás estuvo bien, el equipo excelente, Rocke el administrador es de lo mejor, Pepe también gran compañero, trabajábamos a gusto ⚡️⚡️

Es una pena leer esto Laura a pesar de toda la paciencia que se ha tenido contigo, cuando nadie de las personas del equpo por "compañerismo " queria decir lo que tenia que decir , nosotros entrenamos a las personas con paciencia y delicadeza, pero repetir mas de dos veces, tres veces, o cuatro veces temas basicos , y que generaban problemas en la parte administrativa por que no habia una concentracion , era un tema que no despues de repetidas veces con paciencia enseñar no se puede tolerar, y aun asi nosotros y especial yo soy de las personas que soy FIRME CON LOS EVENTOS pero DELICADOS con las personas, , entonces si decirles las cosas que no estan bien , es "hacerle sentir mal " entonces creo que debes seguir en lo que usted mismo manifesto es buena , y es en limpieza, pero creo que puede dar mas que eso , y pusimos mucha fe en eso, en todo caso , mi calificacion a su perfil fue mas bien viendo lo positivo ,
El hostel tiene mas de 8 años, Rocke excelente gerente tiene 2 años , y el ranking del hostel top2 sobre 99 locales en trip advicor y 9,5 el mas alto con mas de 600 reviews en Hostel world donde hablan de todo el equipo incluyendo mi persona, no es consegudo por gusto.
me hubiera gustado un poco mas de sinceridad y honestidad para decir lo que pinesa

el no haber cumplido lo pactado y decir que era por un viaje de un familiar, espero sea cierto,
si tanto tamiben le incomodo , no hubiera aceptado el trabajo extra pagado que le ofreci, o es porque por dinero si puede ser tolerante ??
muy lamentable su falta de sinceridad al fin de cuentas
