I had an amazing 2 weeks at the hostel in Cuenca. The hostel staff are the sweetest and most helpful people! The lead staff helped me at all times during my shift. This is an experience I will cherish forever. The hostel is located in the beautiful city of Cuenca where there is so much to explore!

My stay at the hostel was my perfect first Worldpackers experience. The people are super nice and put a lot of effort into it. The beds and breakfast are great. The agreed working hours and tasks are adhered to. I can only recommend this work exchange! :)

My schedule was a bit disorganized, but I had a great time at the hostel. I would definitely recommend volunteering here.
