Mi primer voluntariado y fue la experiencia más bonita que tuve. Desde que llegué me sentí como en casa. Ricardo e Iris son personas muy amables, y el equipo de trabajo me hizo sentir muy cómoda. Se cumplieron los beneficios de la app y los horarios son muy flexibles. Las tareas asignadas son sencillas y están al tanto de todo. Me hubiera gustado poder compartir con más voluntarios pero de todas maneras volvería en una próxima oportunidad. Gracias por todo!!!

O hostel é um lugar bem tranquilo e organizado. Ricardo e Íris sempre atenciosos e flexíveis, prontos para auxiliarem no que fosse necessário. Além disso, fiquei encantada com Huaraz.
Foi incrível! Recomendo a todos.
