Novatada y grandiosa primer experiencia en WP
Del lugar, es genial junto a Termini. Las instalaciones deben mejorar, no lo digo por los voluntarios sino para los huéspedes ya que eso ayuda a atraer y conservarlos.
Del trabajo, mucho trabajo, la verdad haciendo horas de más, sencillo si, pero cansado el turno nocturno. No me agrado que el jefe decide si respiras o no en el momento, pero en fin uno fue a trabajar y se pone la camiseta.
Los compañeros, lo mejor sin duda, el ambiente fue lo mejor como una segunda familia con quienes salí a conocer la ciudad y ayudarnos dentro del trabajo.

Mario Spanish is great! One of the most kind and friendly people I met. He made sure all volunteers were comfortable and satisfied.
The hostel is in a great location! You can go walking everywhere! The coliseum is only 15 minutes walk. Amazing!
The volunteers are amazing! So friendly... maybe the best part.
Mario Italian can be a bit challenging... he could definitely learn a lot from Mario Spanish.

M&j was my first experience doing worldpackers and for sure it will not be my last. I have worked 7 weeks at the reception and had the opportunity to meet and work with wonderful people that will make part of my life forever. My host (Spanish Mario) is a charismatic person who had enough ability to manage all volunteers. Basically, the volunteers work in the reception, restaurant and in the kitchen washing dishes. Unfortunately, the hostel has a precarious infrastructure where the wifi barely works, the showers have little water and the rooms has bed bugs. The experience is worth it.

La experiencia en el M&J Hostel fue genial. He de agradecer a todos los demás voluntarios el buen tiempo que me hicieron pasar allí. Disfrutamos cada día de la experiencia, conocimos mucha gente y mantuvimos una relación muy buena durante toda la estancia. En cuanto al trabajo, solía ser bastante disciplinado, trabajar 6h al día con dos días de descanso a la semana. Me gustaría agradecer también en este comentario al mánager, Mario Español, que fue el responsable de haber hecho esta experiencia fantástica. Una persona muy atenta y amigable. Referencia para nosotros, y un ejemplo para Mario ITA
