I loved being a part of the Republica team! The second I arrived (karaoke night, party!), I felt so welcomed and loved by everyone. It was amazing for my Spanish practice because most of the staff didn't speak English and were very patient with me. Natalia was always very flexible with my schedule. She made sure I was able to go to Barranquilla for Carnaval. There are a lot of hours, but you will enjoy your time working amongst friends in such a beautiful, chill environment. Give them a giant beso from me!




Incrível, uma das melhores experiências da minha vida. O Hostel é extremamente organizado e bem estruturado, além disso as tarefas não são difíceis (e se se fizer com amor, você nem vê o tempo passar). Os anfitriões foram extremamente atenciosos, solícitos e amáveis, lá conheci pessoas fantásticas que levarei para toda vida.

Equipe República SM, muito obrigado por tudo...compartilhar alguns dias com vocês enriqueceram minha viagem.




Con república hostels fue mi primer voluntariado, y aunque llevaba otras expectativas ellos lograron superarlas, me sentí como en casa, el hospedaje, la comida, las personas que conocí, la atención de los anfitriones, las actividades que hay para hacer, ademas el Hostel está muy bien ubicado para poder conocer toda la historia de la ciudad.

💯 lo recomiendo.
