My time with this amazing people in this inclredible place couldn't be better! I wasn't expecting to get so attached to the place and to the people! The atmosphere you will encounter will be of a family that welcomes you with open arms, that wants to hear your opinions, even if they differ a lot from theirs, in every conversation you can expect laughter and a will to understand the other's point of view like I've never seen before.
You'll have plenty of time to work and explore the city later, the food and the accomodations are great!
I am coming out of these experience a better person <3

My experience with Shelter Jordan was amazing.From the beginning I want to thank the hosts Timo and Kevin who accepted me at the hostel and answered my emails with lot of love and care. Since I arrived at Shelter Jordam on November 06, 2017 I had no idea how serious my state was and how I could tranform my stay with the other volunteers not only from work from an exchange of affinity and enough love but; so much love really. All the hosts each with their responsabilities welcomed me with much kindness, commitment and smile on their faces and I returned the same with much love gratitude
