We were having a good time in the hostel, but sadly one day Tomas got crazy when a volunteer in a party kiss another man, no make sense his reaction and she drop away the girl, obviously all the others volunteers decided to go with the girl too, this wasn’t a mature reaction.

Andres was very professional and good help. What happened, is that another volunteer (not him, somebody who came with another system that Worldpackers) behaved poorly in our public space. It was a behavior that I couldn't admit. I told the concerned volunteer that it was the end of her volunteering period, but it was more to make her think about the behavior expected, and I would have let her a second chance after a talk. But then this other volunteer immediately left with other volunteers (including Andres). I understand that volunteers who come there for a long period can have a private life, but it has to remain private and discreet

I've had a lovely time at Blue Canary, the hostel is a few mins away from a natural swimming pool, so you can have a dip whenever you want! Work hours were fair. Thomas was nice enough to show me around the island (you need a car to get around!), I've seen so many breathtaking landscapes, El Hierro is a piece of paradise :-)

I spent a awesome time at Blue Canry Hostel. It's just perfect for everyone who is looking for silence, peace, and also knowing beautiful people (the guests who coming were amazing, crazy and funny people!). The work is easy and it depends on how much guests there's in the hostel. I never met Thomas because he was in travel, but his father Nicolas is a very nice man with a big heart (:

It was very good experience at the blue Canary hostel, if you want tranquility and nature this is the place to be.
The tasks are very easy and Tomas the owner is a very good person.
