I had a wonderful time at Tierras Viajeras! Everyone was very welcoming and helpful when it came to practicing my Spanish. The hostel is pretty far from any tourist attractions, but perfect if you want to stick around the hostel meeting locals and other travelers! The work was quick and easy as well. Thank you, Henry, for having me!!

Henry was very welcoming from the first day that I was there. The hostel is small, but cozy and has a very artsy vibe. There were also ample opportunities to meet other travelers and spend the day with them, although it's true that most are just there for a night or two. The work is pretty straightforward and would usually only take a couple of hours to do, so you have plenty of time during the day to explore if you want. Definitely would recommend this work exchange to somebody wanting to see a different side of Lima for a bit!

I had a great stay at Tierras Viajeras.
Henry was so friendly, cared about me and everyone is very welcome from the first second. It is a small hostel and the travellers are there mostly for 1 night but nevertheless you can have nice evenings together.

Que linda experiencia! El hostel es lindo, con arte por toda parte. El barrio es muy simple y local, lejo de toda confusión turistica, es un lugar dónde, además de gastar menos, tú tienes la oportunidad de estar más próximo da realidad de los moradores locales de Lima. Henry es una persona preciosa, muy flexivel y amavel, está siempre disposto a ayudar y realmente te hace sentir como en casa! Durante mi estadia convidó un cocinero para hacer platos peruanos para nosotros (nunca voy a olvidér la causa vegana). Me quede solo por una semaña, pero podria quedar por mucho más, ya quiero volver!! <3
