De verdad fui con mucha ilusión a este voluntariado ya que era el primero que hacía con worldpackers y además porque tenía muy buenas referencias pero terminé completamente decepcionada, no me trataron bien, el cuarto no tenía luz, no me dieron ni una sola comida de lo que prometen y nunca llegué a conocer al anfitrión porque estaba de fiesta por su cumpleaños, me da mucha lástima que justo yo haya llegado ese día pero no fue culpa mía. Solo duré una noche ahí por obvias razones, el anfitrión debió ser más responsable y de verdad mientras eso no cambie no recomiendo este voluntariado.

Yersi foi um anfitrião excelente. A cidade de Quinua é bem pequena e não tem muitas opções de passeio e diversão, mas a experiência de imersão na cultura local vale muito a pena. A comida servida pelo anfitrião é boa e o quarto de hóspedes também. O banheiro é compartilhado, fora da casa e não tem água muito quente, o que é desconfortável em dias de muito frio. O trabalho é bastante físico e são respeitados os horários. A construção do hotel é um sonho do anfitrião que está se tornando realidade aos poucos. Fiquei muito contente em poder participar desse projeto.

Yersi é incrível. Um jovem com um sonho de ter um hotel que está se realizando, é prestativo e cumpriu tudo o que estava previsto. Quinua é bem pequena e com restrições próprias. O trabalho é tranquilo, exige esforço físico, mas nada que seja degradante. A alimentação é boa e farta. As instalações do hotel estão em fase de finalização, o banheiro é compartilhado e a cozinha ainda é um cômodo improvisado. Se você procura um anfitrião nota 10, vale muito a pena, mas se tem muitas preocupações e quer um local completamente limpo e higienizado, talvez não seja a melhor opção.

La experiencia en Mamachina fue increíble. Iba por una semana y me quedé dos.
Yersi fue muy amable y me enseñó mucho de la cultura de Quinua. Me llevó a conocer los talleres de cerámica y lugares de los alrededores. El pueblo es mágico, con muchos sitios para visitar. Pasé La Nochebuena con su familia y me acogieron como a una mas. La comida de Mamachina es exquisita y muy abundante.
Yersi es un manitas y muy trabajador, sin duda cuando termine su proyecto será un lugar espectacular. El único inconveniente fue el frío y la lluvia. Muy recomendable para los que les guste la naturaleza.
