It was fantastic work at hostel Santander! Lovely people (other volunteers, Gise y Cami, and the travelers) and most important thing was that Gemma was very kind and very disponible for everything. I really recommend this hostel for people who want to visit nord Spain and know Spanish culture ;)



Lovely hostel with a beautiful view and a very nice host . There was another volunteer, so that each had another shift to do.
Tasks were fair.
For anyone wanting to apply without speaking Spanish: It probably would have been a nicer experience if I had been capable of speaking Spanish. Communicating with some guests was a bit challenging because of the language barrier, but everything worked out in the end.



Was a great experience!!! Sntander is so beautiful and nice city to live! Also the hostel was very cozy and well located. The tasks were very easy and Gemma is such a nice person =)
I loved my experience!!



My experience in HS was really good :) The hostel is really quiet (too much quiet sometimes) and I had to work only in the morning, so I could enjoy the beach and the city. Gema is really kind and friendly and I had a lot of fun with the other volunteer Anto :)
I definitely recommend this hostel!



Going to the Santander Hostel was one of the best choices I've ever made. It's very well located in this beautiful city, comfortable and Gemma is a good and generous hostess. I stayed there for 45 days and I highly recommend it :)
