My expectations are now super high for my next hostal adventure. I feel like I should have been paying them to be there. They cooked for me, invited out to eat or explore, made me feel like family, and even painted my nails haha. I love them! I will be returning!

Alex y Óscar son increíbles te tratan como su familia, el ambiente es muy divertido, puedes convivir con todos los huespedes y si tienes planes o actividades son muy flexibles en tus horarios; fue mi primer experiencia en el voluntariado y no pudo ser mejor, estoy muy agradecida con todos los que formaron parte de esta experiencia.
Aparte tienen un brillito hermoso que se llama Nala y hace aún más bonito y ameno el lugar.

Alex y Óscar son personas maravillosas que te acogen desde el principio para que te sientas como en casa. Siempre que proponía ideas eran muy flexibles y predispuestos a realizarlas y eso motiva mucho y te da mucha libertad. Muchas gracias chicos por todo! Espero volver a veros muy pronto😊
