I had an amazing time at A Fabrica. It's in a beautiful area of Galicia, and is well worth the visit. Sara, Oscar, and their staff are great people and the hours were very fair - I had heaps of time to myself and lots of opportunities to visit the surrounding villages, as well as multiple day trips to Ourense. The work was mainly outside doing general gardening duties such as weeding, trimming hedges, sweeping and other odd jobs, as well as in the hostel doing beds, washing and cleaning. The work was easy and varied.
I'll definitely be back to visit!



A Fábrica Da Luz fue mi primera experiencia en Worldpackers y la verdad que estoy muy contento. Las tareas que realicé fueron desde mantenimiento, limpieza, soporte en los servicios que brindamos, ir a hacer compras, jardinería, etc. Es un plus el estar rodeado de naturaleza, aire puro y tranquilidad en una vieja central hidroeléctrica junto al Río Mao. El staff también hizo su parte: Sara y Óscar fueron flexibles y siempre dispuestos a dar más de lo que uno espera; Lois y Carmen fueron los mejores cocineros; y Mari y Alba fueron grandes compañeras de trabajo. Disfruten éste lugar y su gente!



la verdad no tengo palabras para describirlo, desde el momento que llegue me senti como en casa, sara y oscar me hicieron sertir parte de la familia, el lugar para los que nos gusta la montaña es un paraiso en el mundo, cuando salis a recorrer tenes de compañera a luka ( la perra de los chicos) la comida genial, los dos son muy buenos cocineros, y el trabajo tranquilo y suave, la verdad una experiencia perfecta no le agregaria nada, espero volver algun dia.



Mi experiencia en la fábrica de luz fue muy linda! El lugar es verdaderamente increíble y es un buen punto para conectar con la naturaleza! La pasé muy bien y les agradezco un montón a Oscar y a Sara!! (Saludos a Luca )
