The house is a huge construction site, work is underway at all points. I had my own room.
My main task was to sand oil paints off a wall. We also brought bulky waste to the recycling center and I did a little gardening.
The family was friendly to me and offered to show me local sights or to come with me to Silvia's yoga class. Silvia prepared delicious meals, the plantains were delicious!

Silvia was extremely difficult to work with, which comes as a surprise given the many good reviews.
She tried cancelling on me twice after I had bought my plane tickets.
I eventually convinced her otherwise, and tried my best to understand her expectations to better work with her. I was commited to do my best, but she was unhappy that I was either too slow(when I tried to be detailed) or too messy (when I sped up to appease her).
She went to the extent of saying "Asians are meant to be perfectionists, and you aren't at all!"
On the 4th day, she decided to kick me out without prior notice.

I am Yves, the husband. Yes our house is 20 mn by foot from the station but we didn't spoke about pick you up. You presented yourselves as young people with military training and you are complaining about walking 20 min? Really? Shower rules were know before you arrive and accepted, my wife also show you the whole house by video conversation through WhatsApp, so no surprise. There was plenty of ffp1 and ffpw masks for the dust work... Everybody use some when needed. You didn't use that mask you are showObviously it was broken and nobody used it like that. You just took that picture to defame. You stayed in our house what do you know about his renovation? All electricity and plumbing is done by professionals. I am doing myself all the wall plastering and putting the. Tile, ground, painting etc. Worldpackers helped us in destruction works and gardenigs mainly, or some ground works with this who were capable of, working with me. The true is that you and your friend have 2 left hands and no actitud to learn. You didn't want or were unable to hold the disc grinder more than one minute... That's why we ask you to find another place. Neither we kicked you from one day to other, we let you some days to find a place and you found it for the next day... It was your decision. Then you come with all those personal things here on the web to defend yourself... Speakings about my daughter's or that we are racist and bla bla... Come on. I will not respond anymore to your comments and ha I don't think you speak an Oxford english neither.

Listing untrue. Her house is 20mins walk to train station plus a 20mins train. Thus time to Brussels centre is 40mins not 20mins mentioned. Pickup mentioned is false. Language barrier due to Silvia's barely beginner English. Rules such as shower once only after work. Rooms provided has mold, broken furniture and soiled clothes. Safety equipment provided to do certain task was lacking. (mask without front filter, https://postimg.cc/06S8jxrj) They are seeking to renovate their entire house using worldpackers.

Silvia is an excellent host, I really enjoyed my stayed at her house, food was great, she gave us bicycles, and was really friendly and kind with us.
The work is not easy, you have to be really punctual and commit with the job, you also have to be really clean with the working space and tools. You also have to like kids, Silvia and her husband, Yves, have two beautiful little girls that play and run all over the place, and they'll surely play with you. Is very important to have initiative, but you'll get used to it. Oh and is very important to finish what you started.

Son únicos. !!! Nosotros también los extrañamos, por qué de.alguna manera lo más importante para mí.. independiente de todo lo que nos ayudaron. Siempre fue su gran alegría y simpatía que compartían con mis niñas. En verdad eso no tengo con qué pagárselo. Yves y yo se los agradecemos de todo corazón. Todavía preguntan por ustedes. Cuídense mucho! Los queremos mucho.un fuerte abrazo !! pd. Luego me mandan a sus hermanos !!!
