Learning & Fun




It was ok. I made many friends. Hosts didn't know about my arrival even if I had confirmed the day before by phone, so for most of my stay I didn't have a bed assigned and I was never sure where to leave my stuff. I was chided for having "screwed up" for not cleaning after Christmas even if I had done my part of tidying up! Only one shower with hot water. The duties were never clear from the beginning and that led to misunderstanding. I had to depart before the agreed day as I had an ankle injury and according to the hosts we were "too many" volunteers. Cool experience overall anyway.




Totalmente recomendado tanto para voluntarios como para huespedes.

El ambiente es super relax y con muy buena vibra, además de que la ciudad y sus alrededores son encantadores, el único detalle es que rara vez sale el agua caliente de las regaderas. Pero fuera de eso es un excelente lugar para hacer voluntariado u hospedarse.





Una experiencia súper linda,
Es estar en casa, así te hacen sentir. Los compañerxs siempre apoyando y atento si necesitas algo. Ya se extraña la familia y a vago (el perrito). Súper recomendable. Muchas gracias Edson, es lo más. Abrazo a todos ahí.




Esta fue mi primera experiencia como voluntaria y creo que no podría haber elegido un mejor lugar para aprender a hacerlo.
El corral NO es un hostel, es un hogar. Donde cada una de las personas que ahí están son tu familia. La unión que se hace entre staff y huéspedes es muy especial, supongo que eso incrementa que la vibra del Corral sea la mejor de todas.

Muchas gracias Ale, Edson y Luis, por haber depositado su confianza en mí y enseñarme tanto.
Los llevaré siempre en el corazón (al igual que a Vago y Lupita). Fue una de las experiencias más bonitas de mi vida.
100% recomendado!
