My volunteer on the Clock Hostel in Cartagena was amazing! I had the best time with the hosts/employees and also with the guests at the hostel! Always fun and cheerful! The work wasn’t hard, normally 2 shifts in a day 2 hours in the morning helping with the beds and 3 at night helping with reception and keeping the common spaces clean and organized. Loved it!

Recomiendo 100% este voluntariado, los horarios y las tareas qué hay que realizar son fáciles y flexibles, tuve harto tiempo para conocer la ciudad en los tiempos libres que me quedaban.
Los trabajadores del hostal también fueron muy amables, me ayudaron y me enseñaron todo.
Cumplen con todo lo que ofrecen, las comidas eran buenas y el alojamiento también era cómodo.

Mi Experiencia en Clock fue increíble, lo recomiendo al 100%, se cumplen todas las condiciones ofrecidas y la comida deliciosa.
El equipo me recibió muy bien, gracias a cada uno por hacerme sentir cómoda. Me voy con el corazón lleno de cada experiencia, porque es un muy buen lugar para conocer Cartagena. Además pude conectar con otros viajeros y con la cultura local.

La experiencia estuvo bien pero falta mucha comunicación por parte de la Administración. Se supone que Wordpacker permite interactuar entre ambas partes mediante un chat para fomentar la comunicación fluida, sin embargo hay cosas que no te avisan sino hasta que estas allá, como los horarios, te los cambian de un día al otro o el mismo día y eso no permite organizarse y menos si tienen un trabajo como era mi caso y de lo que tenían conocimiento. Lo hablé con la persona encargada pero tampoco hubo ninguna colaboración entonces tuve que dejar el lugar antes.

Minha experiência no The Clock foi muito boa. Toda a equipe é muito querida e super gente boa! O trabalho foi super tranquilo, e os horários e atividades foram exatamente como combinado anteriormente.
Recomendo muito para quem quer ter uma imersão com locais e estrangeiros, e ainda por cima aproveitar Cartagena! :)
