The Experience

The work itself is cleaning, making beds, mopping floors. We also sometimes need help with gardening, painting and carpentering. Working hours per day are 4h. So you will have enough time for yourself. In return, we offer free accommodation, laundry, and sometimes booze. The Villa is beautiful, has a large fully equipped kitchen, lots of hammocks and spacious rooms. We are close to surfing and swimming beaches (18 min).

It was a super nice and relaxed time. It‘s super fun to stay there and explore the city and the beach with the bikes from the hostel. It‘s clean and you feel really welcome there.

It was great my first experience as exchange job in Mexico. Manuela was really kind, amazing and helpful. The house is big, but we share the job and it wasn't hard for each one. Thanks for our conversations and good laughter, Manuela! Cheers!

My job was cleaning and some things in the garden, I learn some things of that. The hostel is really nice, it is a house to relax. Manuela is really nice, and knows a lot of traveling, backpacking.

Tuve la oportunidad de conocer a carol y Março, son responsables, respetuosos y honestos, el trabajo era sencillo y agradable, el hostel es muy tranquilo y eso te da tiempo para hacer tus necesidades con tranquilidad, tiene supermercados a menos de 100 metros y lo mejor tienen bicicletas para el uso. Lo recomiendo a las personas que quieran un tiempo de paz y dar todo de sí.

Embora haya sido muy bien recibida en mi llegada no ha sido buena experiencia pues he sido contratada para trabajar de noche y tuve que trabajar durante el dia.El servicio de jardineria no es como esta descrito.Es un trabajo pesado no adequado para mujeres.El tiempo no estava sendo respetado.En el primero dia trabajé muy pesado abajo del sol durante 5 horas y cargando mucho peso, el segundo 4 horas e media, el tercero las 4 horas y en el 4 dia ya no tenia condiciones físicas.Me decepcioné pues la propuesta era otra, pero la anfitriã es muy buena con los huespedes.No entramos en acuerdo.

Paola you are lazy, slow and useless. Of course the job took forever, you were constantly on your tablet talking instead of working. I am 10 years older than you and feel ashamed of your behaviour. You have no business being a volunteer.
