Our experience was very good. They accepted my boyfriend and I and were very kind. The accommodation and food were good and what we liked most was the flexibility of letting us choose the work shift in exchange for 1 or more meals. Some constructive points are the laundry. The hostel is still organizing itself to be able to offer it to volunteers. We could only wash clothes after our work hours of 11pm and when we woke up (5am) to extend them, the clothes were out of the machine, without a complete cycle. However, we were very welcome and enjoyed getting to know the region. We will miss you!

Hola! Mi tarea era hacer murales lo cual me encantó! Podía acomodar el tiempo a mi gusto. Las personas del hostal son muy amables y en general es un lugar rodeado de naturaleza y bastante tranquilo, perfecto para desconectarse de la rutina diaria.

Hola todos, Mi experiencia en Juancho's House fue excelente. Las personas te hace sentir como en casa. Todo el personal de este hermoso hostal me recibieron con cariño y pude aprender mucho de ellos. Fuera que te tratan como parte de su equipo me hicieron sentir como en familia. Los labores por hacer como bartender , mesero y entre otros son muy interesantes,divertido y facil de manejar. El hostal esta ubicado en dónde el mar, playa y la sierra nevado se unen y tienes tiempo para explorar lo. Fue para mí un tiempo inolvidable y seguro volveré Les recomiendo este oportunidad 100%!

A minha experiencia no hostel foi muito boa. A dona do hostel e os funcionários são uns queridos! Me receberam muito bem e são muito tranquilos. É um pouco afastado da cidade mas o onibus te deixa na porta, o que é perfeito. Acredito que o ponto de melhoria seria apenas a acomodação dos voluntários (que precisaria de talvez um armário) e a questão da cozinha (que é um pouco dificil de usar porque é do restaurante do hostel). Mas o hostel é lindo!

El intercambio no fue bueno. Si bien nos permitieron participar con mi novia y el trato fue cordial, no se cumplió con las condiciones básicas. La habitación era pequeña y no tenía ventana ni ventilación y la humedad era extrema, por lo que a los pocos días todas nuestras pertenencias se llenaron de moho, incluso la ropa de nuestras mochilas. Y lo otro fue la alimentación. Ciertas comidas no fueron nutritivas ni abundantes, ej: un perro caliente, una yuca hervida, 3 patacones,un plato de arroz..Se habló pero no hicieron cambios. Hubo buen ambiente con otros voluntarios y algunos empleados

Martin gracias por tus criticas nos permitiran mejorar y corregir pero es importante que tengas en cuenta los siguiente:

1. Su habitacion se lleno de moho porque en 20 dias no realizaron limpieza a su espacio, toda la zona del tayrona es humeda.
2. Se habia acordado una cama el cual compartirian entre los dos y sin embargo habilitamos las dos camas y dejamos la habitacion solo para ustedes por privacidad.
3. La manera de su compañera de pedir las cosas era grosera y despota.
4. Dejaron el turno tirado sin terminar su labor.
5. Durante su jornada de servicio permanecian la mayor parte del tiempo en el celular.
6. No tenian mucha iniciativa.
7. Discutian constantemente y golpeban las cosas de su alrededor sin importar quienes estuviesen alli.
8. Comentaron la inconformidad de la alimentacion dos dias antes de dejar el turno tirado.
9. Tomaban los productos de consumo del restaurante sin previa autorizacion.
