Fue mi primer voluntariado a través de Worldpackers, me llevó grandes momentos y experiencias, conocí acerca de la cultura boliviana ya que Edward tiene mucho para contar acerca de ella y me llevo grandes amistades que conocí en el hostel. Pude mejorar mi inglés ya que hay muchos viajeros de todas partes del mundo. Además la ubicación del hostel es increíble, en el centro de la ciudad y frente al mercado central, la comida aquí es espectacular!!! Gracias gracias gracias ✌🏽

Vivi dias incríveis em Tarija. Edward é um anfitrião com o coração enorme, uma pessoa muito justa com as tarefas e muito compreensível com situações adversas. O Hostel patayperro foi como uma segunda casa para mim. Sou muito grata por esta experiência que levarei para a vida.
