There was a problem, a couple of Colombians robbed the Caixa. The owner was very angry and was rude with me. I found it an unpleasant situation, because I was always kind to everyone and performed my duties WELL. In the evening via WhatsApp I asked about the schedule for the week and said that I would like to stay for two more days and leave due to the discomfort I had left.He was indignant and said that I helped the Colombians.
It was a shame because it didn't need to end like this. I believe that problems or failures can happen, but with a good conversation everything can be resolved.

You started your shift in the morning and noticed not only that the money was missing but also that the people who took it were gone and DID NOT INFORM ANYTHING until 5 hours later when the manager arrived. Truly unbelievable. The worst is that you were upset because you thougth the manager was rude to you just for asking you why you did not inform. Not only that you can not take responsability for your neglect but also create more problems and false accusations. I would not recommend anyone anywhere to host such an irresponsible and conflictive person as you.



!Fue una excelente experiencia¡ Se respetaron los horarios y tareas asignadas; también hubo flexibilidad en caso de algún imprevisto. Kat y Santiago son grandes personas que están pendientes de todo la mayor parte del tiempo. Los trabajadores del hostal: Rebeca, Jorge y Nerio fueron amigables, respetuosos y atentos. Aparte de todo ello, la convivencia entre voluntarios fue muy hermosa.

¡Recomendadísimo! Cuando regrese a Ecuador los volveré a visitar...

I've had a great time in the hostel. The job was fun (mostly talking to the guests), the staff and the volunteers were amazing from the beginning. Usually there are a lot of volunteers which makes it easy to find like-minded people.

Um bom lugar pra voluntariar em quito. Bom quartos, banhos e lugares pra relaxar e trocar idéia. O único ponto negativo vai pra cozinha.
Trampo tranquilo, donos gente boa, cafe da manhã ok. Localização é boa, bem perto do centro histórico. Não sai pra conhecer muito por causa do momento de segurança do equador. Mas quando se normalizar, apoio muito sair pros trekkings e passeios que quito tem a oferecer!
