Atlas

ATLAS is an Alternative Travel Local Association on the island of Gran Canaria. Our mission is to create an alternative to the unfair mass tourism industry, which brought little benefits for local people. We see travel as a way to promote cultural exchange, environmental awareness and a fair economy. ATLAS is an important space and a reference for alternative culture in Las Palmas, as we provide a space for artists, associations, activists,and everybody wanting to share art, culture or knowledge. (Facebook: Asociación Atlas Gran Canaria) This is reflected in multiple events per week like concerts, workshops, talks, performances, meetings and theater acts. All this is possible thanks to the arrival of travelers, whose contributions make it possible to maintain our space.

We look for volunteers helping us in the office welcoming guests, organizing daily tasks, with cultural events and with cleaning tasks. We welcome all volunteers to get involved in the activities organized by the association.

-End of the comment of Julia- People who lived in there were mostly "junkies" and rude, they wound even have the respect to say hi or welcome... We had to leave this place earlier than expected and we couldn't even sleep there because they weren't well organized and my sister didn't have her own bed. So we've been forced to take an hotel and we left Gran Canaria the day after we arrived. Nothing went as planned , I'm really disappointed because we spent a lot of money to do this experience (airline tickets, hotel, taxis,...)

This experience was THE WORST I’ve ever done , I’m a girl who loves to travel and I’m really open minded (that’s indeed one of the reason I chose to try Worldpackers’ experience)
The photos that they put on the website were absolutely not similar to the place we’ve been (I will put the pictures I’ve taken to prove it)
Rooms they proposed were so small that we could hardly put our suitcases in them, prison’s cells may be bigger !...
I don’t understand why Atlas is considered as a Top Host, that’s a mystery for me I swear.

It was my worst experience ever, the photos they have post do not represent the place we have been
There is not even a place to put your suitcase, the rooms are for 4 and are really small
I am sure that cells in prison are bigger and prettier..
People were not polite, nobody told us "welcome" or "hello", it's a shame, they were looking at us like "who are these girls? what are they doing here"
The place was dirty and the walls were in ruins; this place was absolutely not what we expected
It's a shame
I think that I will put charges

ATLAS is an incredible space! Love tall the volunteers, great team attittude. We often cooked together, had jamming sessions and dancing workshops. Manuel organizes social events, which you are free to attend as a volunteer. The working hours are well divided, you can always talk with Paolo or others to adapt the schedule to your wishes. If there is anything, you can always talk to Shanti and Manuel and try to work the situation out.

overall, I was staying here for more than 2 months, which says a lot. Lots of love for Gran Canaria and ATLAS.
