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!

He estado en el mejor lugar para ser voluntario! Tareas bien organizadas y sencillas, una habitación con armarios solo para los voluntarios, diversidad de plantas y espacios (Mi favorito fue el pasto de la piscina).
Los anfitriones tienen muy buena energía, tanto Mechi como staff y los dueños Yani y Mauro, me hicieron sentir súper bienvenido.
Me encantó coincidir voluntariado con Pato, Gise y Nico.
Una experiencia que no solo voy a extrañar, sino que también voy a querer volver, hasta porque quiero comer unas hojas de la Pereskia Aculeata que planté. Gratitud por todo!

En estos 4 meses en Salta, no tengo más que palabras de agradecimiento hacia Casa Yunga, por brindarme la oportunidad de formar parte de su staff, por haber aprendido un montón de cosas nuevas (entre ellas, hacer los desayunos caseros y aclamados por los huéspedes), por conocer un montón de personas lindas y muchas de ellas ya las considero parte de mi familia y grandes amistades, como así también descubrir mi verdadero potencial.

Especial agradecimiento a Mechi por su gran buena onda y a Mauro (uno de los dueños) por recibirme aquella primer noche y mostrarme el hostel cómo si fuese un volun

Como empezar con esta reseña.. Fue una de mis mejores experiencias que realicé. Desde el primer día me hicieron sentir como en casa, el hostel es hermoso, tiene mucho verde, cocina equipada, aire frío/calor en todas las habitaciones, wi-fi, agua caliente.
Que decir de Mechi, no sólo es muy atenta, paciente y buena onda como encargada, sino también es una excelentísima persona, que hace que te encariñes muy rápido con ella y se haga muy difícil al momento de irse. La verdad que me llevo un hermoso recuerdo de Salta y del hostel, sin duda volveré. Lo recomiendo al 100%, gracias por todo 💖💋
