Yunga Hostel is one of these places that is more than just a place to stay. It creates community and you make friends. The staff and volunteers were all very kind and generous. The owners are great people. The working hours leaves you enough time to travel around the surrounding areas and enjoy Salta. The tasks demand responsibility but are not difficult.
I has an amazing stay and hope to come back sometime in the future.
Thanks equipo Yunga! You are doing a great job!
Gracias!!

Really nice hostel, beautifull enviroment and great people!
I staid there two weeks volunteering with my boyfriend, we are both artists.Yunga wants a new face with a lot of arte, so I did a graffiti in the pool wall. The owners are super supportive about letting you do your art work freely!
I did some hours in the recepcion, mostly the night shift, that is very chill. Nice kitchen to cook, pool and the room they gave to us was really good as well!
I recommend to volunteer here, everybody was receptive with us and our ideas!
A special thanks to Yani for being so sweaty during our stay!

Mi experiencia en Yunga fue muy buena. Las instalaciones del lugar son hermosas, la cocina está muy bien equipada y la habitación compartida es muy cómoda. Las actividades a realizar son simples y Mercedes siempre está dispuesta a explicar cualquier cosa. La localización del lugar es excelente, definitivamente lo recomiendo. Me encantaría volver a Yunga como huésped algún día!

Mi experiencia en Yunga Hostel fue increíble. Me sentí muy bien recibido por el equipo del hostel y los otros voluntários, todos siempre dispuestos a ayudar con lo que sea. El ambiente es extremamente agradable y cómodo, la ubicacion es hermosa, cerca de los cerros, y el trabajo es justo. Los horários son tranquilos y las funciones no son difíciles, y claro siempre se puede contar con la ayuda de alguien si tienes dudas, todos son simpáticos y amables. Solo tengo cosas buenas a decir sobre mi experiencia y nunca me olvidaré de los días que pasé allí! Muchas gracias a todos del equipo de Yunga!
