Learning & Fun


One of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve ever had. I learned a lot from my work and the staff members. I recommend A Room In The City a 100%, if you are a mature and responsible person ready to learn things to apply in your personal and professional life, this is the place for you. I wanna thank everyone who has made this amazing journey the happiest !! /// oh and of course you have loooooooads of fun too.

The experience was really good! The work in the reception is super organized, the people are very welcoming and the city is amazing! Unfortunately, I had to leave earlier than expected but it was a great experience! I totally recommend it :)

Fué mi primera experiencia como voluntaria y la pasé increíble. Nunca había trabajado en un Hostel o en recepción pero mis compañeros hicieron hicieron que aprenda en corto tiempo y si tenia alguna pregunta estaban ellos para ayudarme y Martín que es el q del equipo.
El grupo de voluntarios son de todas partes y es enriquecedor aprender sobre sus costumbres o escuchar las aventuras que tuvieron en voluntariados pasados.
El Hostel tiene una onda juvenil y hay eventos como conciertos o obras de teatro donde los voluntarios tenemos acceso gratis.
Lo recomiendo 👌
