Mi experiencia en Casagrande fue muy linda! Collin y su flia son personas muy cálidas y agradables. Fui muy bien recibida y me sentí muy cómoda durante mi estadía.
Cuando llegué al hostel, los primeros días fueron un poco duros en cuanto a trabajo, ya que tuvimos que realizar limpieza profunda del lugar. Luego, se comenzó a distribuir mejor y alivianar las tareas, con la llegada d otros voluntarios.
Recomiendo este lugar pq es ideal para relajar, estar en contacto con la naturaleza, y concientizar sobre el cuidado del medio ambiente y contribución de vida sustentable.
Hasta siempre! Bso

Contamos varias semanas con la ayuda de Noe para volver a poner en marcha el Hostel luego del parate generado por el Covid.
A su vez, Noe trabajo en fechas de temporada alta con muy buena predisposición y energia en diversas areas y horarios.
Su personalidad alegre, compromiso y responsabildad fue de gran ayuda para que podamos brindar el servicio que mas nos gusta a los huéspedes. Dentro de las tareas que realizo se encuentra encargada de desayuno, limpieza, atención al publico y ventas en la despensa y barra.
Le deseamos lo mejor en sus futuros viajes y la recomendamos tanto como la esperamos de vuelta!! Un fuerte abrazo Noeee!!!



Cheguei no hostel 10 dias antes da quarentena entrar em vigor. Por mais de uma semana consegui desempenhar normalmente as funções demandadas. Porém, com a disseminação do coronavírus, os hóspedes e voluntários foram embora. Depois disso, as tarefas se resumiram em manter limpas as áreas comuns. Aproveitei para curtir a natureza, os pets, a piscina e cozinhar. Agradeço ao Collin por ter aberto as portas do hostel e me abrigado na quarentena. Foi um privilégio passar quase 2 meses nesse lugar. Estou finalizando um documentário que fiz lá sobre a experiência, logo eu publico o vídeo no YouTube :)

INCREÍBLE. Fue la mi primera vez como voluntario y fue maravilloso. Hice muchos amigos, fuimos una gran familia. Antes de salir ya me extrañaba. Los turnos de trabajo son tranquilos, se puede hacer muchas cosas en los horarios libres. El hostel es un lugar RECOPADO, con cabañas, piscina, cocina externa, días de pizza libre y asado. Practiqué y me ayudaron mucho con el castellano. Un agradecimiento a Collin que me recibió y un muy especial a Nat (Nathalia) que estaba siempre disponible y una gran Amiga. Súper recomiendo Casa Grande Hostel principalmente en el verano. Me enamoré de los arroyos 💙
