I had two amazing weeks especially cause I connected with the other volunteers and we build a great team. The place is beautiful even if sometimes some things like water weren’t working. The 3 beautiful doggies and the crazy little cat, which are also an important point of the volunteering here, contributed a lot to this experience and they are the cutest babies ever. There is a lot of potential for Sir Mangle in the future if done right :)

The location is amazing and the hostel is lovely with a lot of potential. I had an amazing experience overall and really enjoyed my time there. It can be a bit hardcore at times because the facilities are a bit basic and there's a lack of organization at times from the hosts. But if you want to stay in a beautiful, relaxed place and are ok with roughing it a bit - I recommend!

Sir Mangle Hostel it’s an amazing place located in front of the beach and with a lot of nature around.
My experience was something special, I had the opportunity to connect with the local community, try different food and also get to know myself better.

Sir Mangle tiene todo para ser un más que maravilloso lugar, solo está mal administrado. Lo mejor de la experiencia fueron África, Sinú, Luna y la Michi. También los amigos cercanos de la playa, como don Rubén. El lugar, la playa, la gente, muy precioso y cálido.
No me siento conforme con la experiencia allá por la poca hospitalidad y responsabilidad del anfitrión. No se cumplen los beneficios anunciados y no hay una organización para los voluntarios.

La ubicacion es increible y tiene un gran potencial para ser un gran destino turistico, sin embargo la comunicacion con el Host no es muy fluida ya que no se encuentra en el hostal y el lugar necesita tener mas atencion en los detalles y de situacion de basica necesidad como la adecuacion correcta del agua y tambien la luz.
Recomiendo a quienes desean tener la experiencia en este lugar se requiere ser autosuficientes, llevar su propio elementos de alimentacion, es probable que no haya servicio de gas asi que debes asumir el costo y lo mas importante es cuidar de los perritos y la gatita.
