I had a good time in my two weeks at the hostel. 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 the hostel 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!

La casa de Omar es muy linda, tiene esa energía de hogar que te hace sentir muy cómodo y disfrutar la estadía. Se cumplieron todas las condiciones que pactamos y Omar fue muy flexible para que podamos conocer muchas cosas en Huaraz. Muchas gracias

Eu estive em baixa temporada, então estava bem tranquilo o hostel, trabalhava apenas 3h por día e ajudando no café da manhã. Huaraz tem lugares lindos, dá pra aproveitar bastante a cidade.
