Best hostel I've ever been!!
Is not only that the place itself its beautiful, they make sure that you feel at home.
There are many things to do and natural places to visit in Tenerife and if you are into water sports this is the place for you.
Usually the guests stay several days and even weeks, which is nice to make friends.
The team of volunteers also was very nice, during my stay there weren't any troubles, a very nice energy all the time.
The task and shifts where organized

I felt stuck at this hostel for the whole experience. The location is terrible, it is literally in the middle of nowhere. There is no bus station around even a supermarket. You have to walk for 40 minutes in the middle of the desert to get anywhere, and they rarely help you. The work is too hard, sometimes they ask you to work 27 hours per week. They changed my shift many times and then when I needed to change to try to explore a bit of the island they didn't let me change. I had to leave one week early, because I was exhausted to be there and couldn't enjoy my time on the island properly.

Mariano and Melissa are the great Argentinian team that run the hostel. They were easy to work with, as were the other volunteers. You have to get used to being a little isolated in the location and the hostel is new, and so has it’s quirks- but so does every hostel. The atmosphere of guests was generally really good and the work is nothing special but easy to do and gives you a lot of free time.

thank you very much Sam, i take notes of all your tips and will add them to our priorities.
Enjoy buddy



It was my first experience as volunteer, and I totally loved it! My team amazing, I Felt at home from the first day. The shifts are flexible. Me i'm working Also as blogger, and sometimes I had to change my Times for some partnerships that i did here in Tenerife. My managers were always comprensive,kind and avalaible.
The hostel is quite calm, full of digital nomad with whom I had the pleasure to talk with.
The team room also is fine. There is enough space, so everybody can have his space.
I really enjoyed it, I will recommend it to everybody wants to come.

El sitio está en mitad de la nada, es un desierto. Mala idea de negocio. Muchas moscas, cucarachas y hormigas. No había señal Wi-Fi. Te cambian de habitación cuando les conviene. No se respeta el protocolo Covid-19. El desayuno ni está incluido. Si te pasa algo ellos no se hacen responsables, sin ningún tipo de seguro o cobertura. Gente fuma do todo tipo de estupefacientes, y alcohol. Mi conclusión. No vuelvo más. Pero eso sí, hay gente maravillosa, todo hay que decirlo.
