It was amazing! The place is really great and worth it. I volunteered in the autumn/winter, so the work is easy because is low season. There was not so many people but the ones that were are very nice, I already miss the hostel and super recommend it.

The experience wasn’t for me, but the hostel is a nice place. I thought it was a lot of work for a volunteer and I didn’t end up staying the whole month. It’s 5 hour solo shifts 5 times a week and you’re expected to be in 4 places at the same time: cleaning bathrooms, reception, laundry and making beds, all by yourself. It was exhausting and overwhelming. I’ve done a lot of volunteering in hostels and never had this much work. The positives are that the hostel is good vibes and the managers and owners are friendly. I would recommend to someone who is really ready to do hard work.

I spent two months at Gijon Surf Hostel and can recommend the experience. In general work is easy (even if it can get quite busy in high season) and the benefits you get out of your stay are above average (like free yoga, surfing, excursions, etc.). The team is nice and everyone willing to help and make you feel comfortable. The surrounding are is nice as you have access to pretty beaches, a park and the town is walking distance away.

Elke ha sido una voluntaria fantástica. Ha sabido desenvolverse con soltura y confianza en todas las tareas que le fueron asignadas. Como ser humano es una persona muy cálida, solidaria y responsable. Tanto staff como huéspedes han estado a gusto con ella y la vamos a extrañar por aqui!

Fue mi primera experiencia de voluntaria y fue lo máximo, coincidí con un grupo de personas maravillosas y conocí lugares hermosos.
El Hostel cuenta con todo lo necesario y más, tiene un ambiente muy agradable. Por otro lado el encargado tiene muy buena disposición en todo momento y se preocupa de que cada voluntario viva una buena experiencia.

Gracias por todo.
