This experience was amazing! The house is beautiful and well situated. The tasks are easy and the schedule is nice, I had enough time to visit. The host is such a nice person and was really patient with me. She made me discover Seoul and it was really fun to hang out with her. I am so gratefull to had volunteered at her guesthouse



Sin duda este voluntariado ha sido hasta ahora la experiencia de cuatro semanas más estresantes que he tenido en mi vida.
Aquí serás claramente un trabajador y no un voluntario, la paciencia será tu reto diario.

Pero sin duda aprenderás mucho, y la casa es hermosa en una muy buena área y la habitación súper cómoda.
Prepárate para trabajar mucho, las tareas se tienen que terminar de igual forma si tienes 3hrs o 1hr, las harás exactamente de la manera en la que se te pide hacer, no te molestes en dar opiniones o ideas eso no ayudará. Solo sigue las reglas que se te dan y todo fluirá bien.

Dear Mariana, this following message is from Worldpackers Host team regarding your experience with us.

“Hey, Sarah!

Many thanks for your reply and information given. It's really nice to know you understand how the collaborative relationships work and that you have taken good actions to make the experiences with the volunteers the best possible.

I understand sometimes there's some misalignment with specific volunteers, since people may have very different expectations towards a kind of experience. I see that communication is key to solve this issue, so keep on doing the good work in making it happen with the volunteers. =)

Please let me know if you need any help. I'll be happy to assist you!

Carol. “
