          Hi, I am coming to do a volunteering scheme with Gap 360. Was wondering if the hostel is busy at this time of year?

          Hi Elle Thank you for the question. Yes, we are quite busy, but not full at the moment so if any of your friends want to join we can still accommodate them :) Kind Regards Shona
