This was an amazing experience and it was my first time volunteering. the hostel is such a great spot and Barbara was a great host and supported me through the had task of learning Spanish. It is possible to succeed in this position not knowing a lot of Spanish but it was a very very difficult experience for me. The other volunteers and the locals we met were the greatest part of this experience for me. I made so many memories I will never forget and life long friendships! Las Galeras is an amazing town with so much to explore and learn.

Barbara is a really nice person, however, they do nothing to enhance your stay my first volunteering went nothing as I expected, if you want to explore by your own las galeras Samana, go for it. they exchange a bed for work that's it. We even had some small disagreements with people working at the hostel and I found myself stressed at times, she has someone managing the hostel. the schedule varied the first week but then I was there 1pm-5 almost everyday leaving you no time to leave las galeras to explore nearby towns I feel they should be mindful that you're there to travel.

I had a great time! The place was super cozy and I met super cool people which were guests in the hostel. When it was empty there was not much interaction. Working hours were 5 days a week for 4 hours, just reception and interacting with the guests which was a fair task and fun as well if you are outgoing. I love Las Galeras as well, its a small cute beach town where you can find time to relaxe, meet backpackers or locals and practise your spanish. Thank you for the experience :)

Hace un día que me fui y ya quiero volver. Las Galeras es un paraíso. Barbara y Franco se portaron super bien conmigo, es fácil comunicarse con ellos y cualquier cosa van a ayudarte. El trabajo es sencillo y el ambiente con los trabajadores es muy bueno también, el horario está bien organizado y tienes mucho tiempo libre para explorar la zona. Sin duda repetiria la experiencia!
