El equipo de la mano del gigante es genial mucho calor humano, Jhonatan es un host increíble siempre pendiente de ti de que no te falte ni se incumpla nada del trato, hicimos varios videos para redes junto con otra voluntaria y el resultado le gustó muchísimo, gracias a todos los parceros de Gigante Huila!

Mi experiencia en the hostel fue una maravilla. Jonathan es un excelente anfitrión, muy flexible y es una persona apasionada a la cultura y al crecimiento turístico de su municipio. La pasé muy bien junto a otro voluntario con el que realizamos las actividades!

Mi experiencia en el hostel fue simplemente espectacular. No solo creé contenido, sino que experimenté la magia de la conexión humana y los lugares emblemáticos de esta joya colombiana. El anfitrión, Jhonatan, es muy atento y auténtico, un narrador de historias de viajes inspirador, que me sumergió junto a sus amigos en un mundo de experiencias. el hostel no es solo un destino, es un viaje sensorial que deja huellas imborrables en el alma. Recomendado totalmente !!!!!!

Nuestra experiencia en the hostel fue inolvidable y muy enriquecedora. Los trabajadores no solo fueron amables, sino también sumamente atentos, lo que hizo aún acogedora nuestra estadía. Además de disfrutar de los encantos naturales, tuvimos el privilegio de explorar algunos lugares de Gigante, Huila, sumergiéndonos en su rica historia y cultura. Jhonatan, con su constante atención y amabilidad, no solo se destacó como un anfitrión excepcional, sino que también personificó la inspiración con su admirable manera de vivir y pasión por brindar una experiencia inolvidable a sus voluntarios.
