The night I arrived they already had a private room for me. They paid for all travel expenses, even did my laundry for free. It goes without saying that it is a rural place, with all of which that entails (farm animals, a remote location, lights out at 11 PM, etc...), but let's be real: you're reading this because you want to be in an enchanting mountain away from the crowds, cozied up in a warm cabin. It has a beautiful, sun-kissed terrace that oversees the rice fields in the valley. The scenery is mesmerizing, the family dinner is delicious, the cabin is cosy and wooden, just book already.

I wouldn't recomend Gowhere Hanoi Hostel to anyone. Nguyen the Host wasn't even the one that was in the picture! he changed all the agreement and did something completely different that was advertised. He thinks he has slaves instead of volunteers...I was suposed to receive three meals a deay and instead he charged me for my food! I was told I was going to organize events and instead he wanted me to write 16 articles a day! The only thing that I enjoyed was my trip to Sapa...

It was a really good experience! Specially because I can apply my Digital Marketing knowledge to try to help the Hmong people. Also, it was amazing that they give the opportunity to be in a local homestay for almost two weeks. After this volunteer I think that I love my job again :)
About the people really amazing, always had a smile for me they were very compresive and helpful when the situations requires that.
If you have the choice don't doubt to join them!

Una vez llegué a Vietnam y después de hablar con el equipo, cambiaron totalmente de idea sobre lo que se había acordado. Pues aunque la familia de Sapa era muy hospitalaria, me sentí un poco decepcionada. En vez de hacer las clases de inglés, tal y como acordamos a través de la página web, meví realizando tareas domésticas y atendiendo a los invitados.
