¡Matias, Laura y Vippin !
Muchas gracias por la excelente experiencia que tuve en el Muffin Hostel, por todo el aprendizaje en el trabajo, en la cultura en general por conocer personas de todo el mundo y en la vida. Ustedes son super buena onda, el albergue tiene un vibe increíble y ha sido un placer vivir estas dos semanas en el Muffin Hostel! Espero que un día nos encontremos de nuevo en algún rincón de este mundo. ¡Abrazos y suerte amigos!

The two weeks I spent in Muffin Hostel were amazing! Matias is very kind and helpful, and I immediately felt at home in the hostel! The tasks were fun and easy, and the staff and the guests felt like family! The location of the hostel is perfect, close to the beach, the marketplace, the bus terminal and the centre. Thank you for everything, hopefully I will come back someday!! 😊

Minha experiência no Muffin foi muito boa, as tarefas eram fáceis e os horários eram bons e sobrava bastante tempo para aproveitar. O clima do hostel é muito legal, todos os voluntários se ajudam e o dono é muito querido. Recomendo!
