ronaldo no es un buen voluntario , nos mintio que tenia que regrwesar a su ciudad y se fue antes de las fechas estimadas creando problemas en la gestion de los horarios. mala experiencia.



I had great fun working at Kiwi ! The owner is super cool and very responsive, makes you feel at home and never bored with ongoing activities ;)

Sam que es el anfitrión agredió físicamente a dos voluntarios en mi presencia, de una compañera y un huésped. Tuvo que intervenir la policía...
Aunque yo no tuve problemas directos con el ni faltas de respeto hubieron muchos comentarios negativos de parte de mis otros compañeros.

Terrible experiencia, no recomiendo este lugar ya que el anfitrión no entiende el concepto de ayuda mutua y te trata como si fueses un subyugado. Es humillante la falta de respeto que tiene con los voluntarios, no cumple con lo acordado, su actitud es prepotente y pedante. Maneja los horarios a su antojo, si sos una persona trans te cataloga con "problemas mentales”, hablar con él para buscar soluciones es inútil, te insulta y amenaza con echarte del lugar. La convivencia con las y los otros voluntarios fue increíble, me llevo amigues con los que voy a seguir conectando el resto de mi vida. 🖤
