Ha sido una excelente experiencia, el trato ha sido muy cordial y amable, te permite sentirte integrado al lugar en muy poco tiempo y el ambiente es muy tranquilo, personas en el lugar son muy respetuosos y amigables. La apertura de Gabi y Remo permite realizar las tareas con mucha confianza y da mucho espacio para la proactividad. Me sentí como en una casa.

A experiência no Hostel RocaMar foi incrível. É um excelente local para quem quer ganhar um pouco mais de experiência com voluntariados porque a Gabi é ótima em gestão de pessoas e sabe se comunicar sempre de uma forma clara e respeitosa. Além disso, é um excelente lugar para aprender espanhol e aproveitar o que Punta tem a oferecer. O voluntariado exige pessoas comprometidas e proativas para realizar as atividades cotidianas do Hostel. Os horarios de trabalho são levados a sério e respeitados bem como os dias livres. Assim, você consegue se divertir e ajudar ao mesmo tempo. Recomendo!

A Gabi é uma pessoa incrível, sempre disponível e disposta a ensinar. As tarefas, no geral, são bem tranquilas: recepção e limpeza, sempre com horário e espaço respeitados. Tivemos bastante autonomia e liberdade, além de tempo para curtir a cidade e o hostel. O espaço é lindo, completo, perto da praia e as pessoas que moram no hostel são muito legais e acolhedoras. O grande problema é o frio: o quarto dos voluntários é longe do banheiro e entra vento por todos os cantos. Em todo caso, foi uma experiência inesquecível.
