El Wanana Hostel es un lugar tranquilo para voluntariar, las tareas son fáciles y todos, los voluntarios y el dueño te ayudan para cumplirlas.

Desde el momento que me tiraron las llaves sabía que Wanana iba a ser el lugar ideal para pasar mi cumple. Tanto los otros voluntarios como Gianfranco me hicieron sentir como en casa!
Las tareas en el Wanana son simples y muy flexibles. En Piura no hay tanto que hacer, pero la onda del Hostel es muy relajada y entretenida.
