Fue una muy grata experiencia!!!!, la familia que te recibe es extremadamente humana, sensible, compartida y amable, me hicieron sentir parte de su hogar. Es un lugar que recomiendo ampliamente, puedes conectar con la naturaleza al 100%, aprender sobre el entorno social, aunado en despertar todas las mañanas con una vista extraordinaria. Gracias por todo 🌸

La experiencia fue hermosa, desde el primer día me hicieron sentir parte de la familia. Compartimos muchas comidas y momentos. el trabajo es más que nada de mantenimiento de los jardines y de los animales, y ocasionalmente alguna tarea de construcción dependiendo del proyecto, pero hagas lo que hagas la vista va a ser hermosa. gracias seba y familia por la buena onda, un placer haberlos conocido!

Mi experiencia fue genial y la pasé muy bien! Tenía una habitación privada, espacio tranquilo para trabajar como nómada digital, la comida siempre rica, contacto con diversos animales, aprendí sobre la cultura local y me sentí parte de la familia! En mis días libres, sábado y domingo, pude disfrutar de fiestas locales y de sitios turísticos de la región de Otavalo! Yésica y Efraim son muy amables y conscientes del intercambio voluntario! Grandes anfitriones son 🤎 Gracias, Sebastián por aceptarme y darme la oportunidad de vivir la experiencia en San Rafael! Les recomiendo

Mis días en el hostel fueron espectaculares, me sentí tan bienvenida y acogida que no demoré en sentir este lugar como un hogar. La familia es muy trabajadora, unida, comprometida y amorosa, los llevo en el corazón a todos. La comida fue deliciosa y el espacio para habitar era completamente digno. Sebas, el anfitrión, es un muchacho muy creativo, cálido y trabajador, le guardo un aprecio especial. Gracias miles por tan calurosa acogida y espero que el negocio siempre crezca y todos sus proyectos avancen satisfactoriamente ✨.
