Working at THE ASH was an incredible experience! But I already leave a warning: you need to be open to everything. The housekeeping work is a bit heavy, especially when there are only two people. The reception can also be a bit tiring because on the night shift you are largely responsible to leave the place in order. On the other hand, you are sure to meet amazing people, take time to get to know the places nearby and especially you will evolve yourself in relation to coexistence and respect with others.

My first experience as a Worldpackers couldn't be more great! I really feel like I'm part of something, as a family. Thanks to Paolo, Elena and Guille for take care of me and my brother and teach us great things not only about hosting and reception, but about respect and kindness too. Hope to see you soon :)
