Estar con Ricardo y Patricio ha sido una experiencia increíble, son respetuosos, atentos, compartidos y buena onda. Las tareas son muy sencillas y algunas de ellas me han permitido conocer mejor la ciudad , tiene un lugar hermoso realmente se siente como estar en casa y también están bien ubicados a unas cuantas cuadras del centro, la zona es bonita y segura. Muchas gracias por todo 🥹

La experiencia en la casa fue increible, Patricio y Ricardo son unos grandes anfitriones, desde el principio se manejan de una manera respetuosa sobre las actividades que se van a realizar, las cuales son acordes al rubro de una casa de huespedes,Ricardo es un gran anfitrion, un buen consejero y motivador para poder expandir la mente con el fin de entrar en el mundo de los viajes, ademas de su exquisita sazòn y los incentivos los cuales se aprovecharon de la mejor manera conociendo la hermosa ciudad de Cuenca, en lo personal recomiendo mucho esta experiencia a futuros voluntarios.

Lugar tranquilo, só tem 1 voluntário de cada vez, então temos um quarto privado, mas é bem simples. Não tem quarto compartilhado, então só tem hospede casal aqui basicamente, o q me fez sentir um pouco sozinho. O trampo é de limpeza, o ponto negativo vai pra que mesmo quando vc acaba de fazer todas as tarefas do dia, te mandaram fazer algo, então é trampo de limpeza todo o tempo msm... e sempre estavam gritando pra me chamar por algum motivo, msm fora do meu horário de trampo... Deram a entender que se ajudasse mais horas dariam todas as comidas tbm. São gente boa, mas diferente do normal.

Al parecer ya era renombrado por ende solo me limité a cumplir lo acordado y comunicado por el cual asistí al voluntariado, saber que siempre tendrás una casa bellavista es lo más valioso en todo este viaje, esperar que todo aquel que cruce por este lugar deje su pedacito de huella dentro de la casa… felicidades para los Srs Ricardo y Patricio por su ímpetu en su hospitalidad

Fue ena experiencia muy satisfactoria, poder contar con los buenos consejos y experiencia de Ricardo mi anfitrión, una persona atenta y considerada. Me resultó una eficaz manera para insertarse de manera eficaz en la ciudad de Cuenca. Las labores son las esperables en un rubro como el de los hostel. Agradecido!
