La experiencia fue muy buena, el hostel tiene una estructura increíble con un espacio común perfecto para socializar, conocer gente y divertirse. Otro punto positivo fue que mejoré mucho mi español con la experiencia, el personal del hostel siempre me ayudó a corregirlo y me enseñó mucho, siempre me sentí muy cómoda, todo el equipo del hostel es increíble. Mi única sugerencia es que la descripción del puesto de voluntario sea más clara en cuanto a horarios y tareas.

¡La experiencia en el hostel fue increíble! La pedrera es un pueblo en estrecho contacto con la naturaleza. Las playas son perfectas, fue una sorpresa porque no sabía que esta región de Uruguay es tan hermosa. Los chicos que trabajaron ahí (staff) son muy amables y respetuosos. La comunicación con los dueños fue muy buena y las actividades y horarios se acordaron con anticipación. ¡Definitivamente quería volver para el verano! Recomiendo esta experiencia de voluntariado.

Este foi o voluntariado onde tiver maior dificuldade na adaptação. Não pelas tarefas em si, mas por um choque cultural que tive, ainda que tenha sido em um pais vizinho ao meu. Acredito que existam vários lapsos na comunicação que precisam ser melhorados, maior atenção as tarefas que devem ser realizadas pelos voluntários e acima de tudo, maior veracidade nas informações contidas aqui na plataforma. Apliquei para La Pedrera, porém, me deixaram maior parte do tempo na unidade de Punta del Diablo. Entendi com td isso qual é o meu real perfil como voluntário, sou urbano, nada de "campo".

Hacer una reseña negativa o entrar en conflicto con un anfitrión no es para nada positivo para mi perfil de worldpacker. Pero he decidido priorizar la comunidad y servirle de guía a otros viajeros para que no pasen lo mismo que yo o peor. En general, es aceptable, aunque podría cuestionar muchas cosas , sobre todo si sos extranjero. Pero no quiero extenderme mucho. El hecho mas importante, es que en la 2da semana, el anfitrión decidió echarme a la calle INMEDIATAMENTE. Solo por llegar 8 minutos tarde al trabajo. Yo, pude arreglarme, pero quizas no todos los viajeros tengan la misma suerte.
