He hecho voluntariado en HT por más o menos 3 semanas y he de decir que ha sido más que suficiente. Desde el primer día en que vine, el anfitrión y los compañeros de trabajo me ayudaron en qué tareas tenía que hacer. El equipo en general ha sido atento conmigo y es algo que agradezco ya que ha sido mi primera experiencia con Worldpackers.

Básicamente las tareas eran de limpieza y de vez en cuando ayudar con la gestión de los bookings. Lo que más me ha gustado era cuando la gente entraba en el hostel y interactuaba con ellos ya soy una chica sociable. Si tienen alguna duda, contáctenme!!

Everybody knows that sleeping in a hostel has the disadvantage of not having the services and the privacy you can find in a hotel, but it gives you the possibility of making friends with other travelers more easily. If you sleep in dormitories with other people you have the cha...
