The guest house is the opportunity of a lifetime! Easily one of the best placements you could ask for. Everyone here became like family to me, the locals are incredibly kind, and the scenery is out of this world!! I truly think that this is the best WorldPackers opportunity because not only do you get a private room, but the work is so flexible and you are free to spend your daytime as you please. Its very rewarding to help out around the property, I would assist with gardening and house work and I was always excited to, putting effort into a place that takes care of you. Thank you the guest house🫶

My experience at the guest house's is amazing. The place is located in the middle of the Valley right next to a wonderful river . Is the perfect place to relax, hike, unplug and focus on yourself whilst meeting people from all over the place, connect and colaborate . The food is amazing , options for vegans and we all are good cooks. You decide what this place means to you, I know what it means to me and I love it. 10/10

My experience at the guest house was incredible. The hostel/B&B is located right in front of a river and it's surrounded by lush, green mountains. It's so sweet. The work was consistent and seemed pretty standard (cleaning, cooking/helping with dinner, general maintenance.) What made the experience exceptional for me was the opportunity to learn new things. Jimena and the other staff were very open to sharing what they knew with me and they were patient in teaching me new things. That made the already great experience that much better. Thanks Jimena, Marga, Rosario, Maria, and Daniel!
