This was my first volunteer experience and I couldn't have asked for a better one. Right away I was welcomed as a new member of the family, the other volunteers always willing to help. The hours were always met and in some cases rewarded with free lunches or additional days off. The hostel is welcoming, but living here obviously requires a little spirit of adaptation. I have spent two fantastic months and I will miss all the volunteers, the hostel and the island. Thank you Ventana.❤️

Tuve una experiencia espectacular en Ventana Azul. Durante el tiempo que estuve me sentí muy comodo y fue mi hogar hasta el ultimo dia.
Tuve una gran conexión con los voluntarios y el hostel tiene un plus al tener a la gatita Selma, la reina del hostel.
Paul, el manager, es una gran persona y desde el principio fue comunicativo y atento, siempre preguntando como me sentia en el lugar y ayudandome a mejorar. Entiende lo que es ser voluntario y es alguien en quien confiar.
Lotta fue una gran compañera, siempre alegre, amorosa y disfrutaba mucho empezar el dia hablando con ella.
