I had a good time in my two weeks at climbing point. The tasks were exactly like described (making breakfast, cleaning, making the beds) and the hours were respected as well.
Most days you would only learn in the evening when you would work the next day (either morning or afternoon), that is something i would have loved to know a couple of days in advance.
Other than that, Omar, his daughter and also the guests are very nice and i got to know many great travelers. What is cool also, is that you can use equipment like climbing gear for free.

Omar is a lovely host and the work is easy, cleaning, serving breakfast and dressing beds in the morning, afternoons are mostly off. The hostel itself is missing a hang out area at the moment, but Omar is working on a roof terrasse and a big kitchen, which is gonna make the hostel a beautiful place to stay. There are a lot of things to do in Huaraz, be aware of the altitude though!

Huaraz es un lugar increíble. Omar, y su hija jazmín son personas transparentes, humildes, empaticas y siempre están dispuestas a permitir al voluntario disfrutar de su estadía en Huaraz. Las actividades laborales son simples y generalmente cortas. He disfrutado muchísimo esta experiencia, estoy enormemente agradecido por la posibilidad que se me brindó. Sin duda volvería!

Mi experiencia en el hostel climbing point fue única e irrepetible, la verdad fue una buena oportunidad realizar mi voluntariado en huaraz porque puse disfrutar muchas actividades dentro y fuera del hostel.

conocí muchos viajeros internacionales y nacionales, compartí con gente local como Omar y su hija.

me recibieron bien y fueron respetuosos en tema de horarios y funciones.

me agradó mucho el lugar es sencillo pero con mucho ambiente viajero.

recomiendo a Omar y su hostel como un lugar para disfrutar de la región.

Tuve la fortuna de que Omar me acogiera dia antes de lo planeado y programado , los horarios , funciones y establecido en la plataforma es respetado y ejecutado tal cual .
Me sentí apoyada y guiada para realizar mis planes de entrenamiento y trecking que iban más enfocados a algo no Tan comercial y turístico sinno más local .
La coordillera blanca es sencillamente especial y mágica , falto tiempo para disfrutar de sus montañas , lagunas y naturaleza .

Hostel Climbing Point fue mi hogar un mes y así me sentí . Gracias Omar por tu generosidad y apoyo en mi estadía .
