Olga was very kind at all times, noble people and with a good heart, but the experience was not as I expected, the space to live is not at all comfortable there was dirt and a lot of smell. Without intimacy and without being able to have adequate hours of rest to continue with the tasks the next day. I am very sorry for the bad experience because I found extremely friendly people. If you are looking for a comfortable and warm place to rest in your free hours, this is definitely not the place. :(

El guest house esta muy bien ubicado, cerca al centro y los sitios turísticos de la ciudad.

Las actividades son sencillas, la comida en la nevera siempre está disponible para los voluntarios , hay 2 gatos y 4 perros.
Los trabajadores son muy amables, lo único a mejorar es planear mejor la semana de trabajo e indicar días libres y horarios con antelación

The attention of the hostess who is Olga is very good even though she is not present. She is always in touch by message. los perritos son muy amorosos el señor es amable la habitación no está mal solamente que si tienes al lado la habitación de los perros si quieres tener un horario me parece que estaría bien que lo pidieras porque siempre dicen un día antes el día de descanso o puede ser que hasta el mismo día pero fuera de todo eso está muy bien la comida está bien la Mrs. Rosa, she cooks delicious. Thank you for everything.

I’m so glad i had the chance to stay in the Averon Guest House. The place is very well located, the accomodations are great and the staff makes you feel like family, always taking good care of you and making sure you had all the meals. I didn’t had the chance go meet the host Olga, but she kept in contact with me about my work and to make sure i had all the meals or that i was being well treated. She seems like an amazing woman, who takes such good care of the pets and the house. If you love animals, this place is perfect. I’m gonna miss all the dogs and specially Kisya and the white cat!!!

Ms Olga was very welcoming since the beginning and the team was super nice as well. The online tasks were easy to do and Ms Olga always ensured that have eaten. The bed, in the living room, was very cozy and hanging with Ms Olga's dogs daily was such a new experience. Overall, the opportunity helped me grow, improve communication skills and grow as a person,
