Fernando y su esposa super amables, muy atentos, te ayudan a conocer el pueblo y lo alrededores con muchos tips, el hostel muy limpio y tranquilo (estuve durante temporada baja) y se cumple con todo lo que mencionan, super recomendado!

Fazer esse voluntário com Fernando e Paula foi um dos melhores na Colômbia, acredito que não vou encontrar outro tão bem como esse. Na realidade todos os dias não sentia como voluntário e sim como um filho mais velho de Fernando e Paula HAH O trabalho é muito simples e todos podem fazer muito tranquilo, Fernando é muito flexível em questão de horário e te deixa o dia inteiro livre para conhecer a "Hermosa Salento"
Queria ter a sorte de encontrar outros anfitriões igual Fernando e Paula por minha viajem!!
Recomendo a todos da Worldpackers!
Muchas gracias Fernando e Paula, hasta más pronto!

Awesome experience with an amazing family. Fernando was one of the most amiable people so far on my trip, and he knows everything about the town and is eager to share. He is also very patient and tolerated my average español effortlessly making me feel very welcome. He ensured that I was very well informed on all the activities available and I had a lot of fun because of this. Their hostel is very relaxed and clean, and an easy place call home.

The night shift was generally not too long depending on the guests. Making the hours extremely fair.

I highly recommend, they're great people.
