The job on here says you'll be cooking but the job is helping with laundry service. Its easy and work hours are respected. He provides you with food but if you want to eat proper meals, send him a list of foods you want or you'll be provided with mostly grains to eat. Maximo is kind and showed me around the city and helped me with whatever I needed. It was a good experience for me to practice my spanish.

I had a very good time at the hostel. Maximo is an amazing person, who truly cares about you and that your experience is as good as possible. I really appreciate Max showing me around town and having me try all the local cuisine. The tasks were simple and easy hours. I did wish there would be more people to socialise with; the hostel is quiet and if you don't know people in town it's not so easy to meet fellow travelers. However, I'm very happy with my experience! Muchas gracias Max por todo!!

Fiquei pouquinho tempo no hostel, apenas uma semana, mas foi uma experiência ótima. O trabalho é bem tranquilo (no geral trabalhei na lavanderia que funciona junto ao hostel) e o anfitrião, Max, está sempre disposto a ajudar. o hostel é bem localizada e dá para ir andando até a Plaza de Armas e até a maioria dos museus de Arequipa :)

Una experiencia muy buena! El hostel tiene una ubicación perfecta y muy cerca del centro de Arequipa - que es una ciudad muy bonita! Las tareas y horarios son respetados, así que también fue cumplido el acuerdo de desayuno, almuerzo y cena. Max es una persona tranquila, flexible y está siempre listo para ayudar.
