She was very kind and engaging. Only the first week she was not too available.

Review written by Katia

I loved the experience of Homestay Exchange. I got placed with a really nice family outside the center of Madrid who were more than welcoming and accommodating. Nino was professional and quick to respond. Even though this opportunity seems too good to be true, it is everything it is said to be. Two hours of english conversation and you get the rest of the day to yourself. Highly recommend!

Review written by Katia

I had an amazing experience at bed and be. It is a professional environment that also feels like family. All the managers are friendly and organized. Alejandra in HR is amazing at her job. She makes you feel welcome and cares about your needs. The responsibilities are reasonable. Prepare breakfast, make beds, interact with guests, do some check ins and “hold down the fort”. I would recommend this position to anyone. Muchas gracias bed and be family!!

What it's like to experience a Worldpackers homestay in Madrid

Hello! I am your Worldpackers Expert in various experiences including hostel work and home stays. I've used Worldpackers to sustain my love for traveling and getting to know places all over the world. I love to write about my travel adventures and encourage people to take their own adventures as well. World packers is a great way to travel because you can establish a home base in a different country and become familiar with your surroundings. It makes you feel like less of a traveler and more of a local. It's what every traveler truly wants; to feel connected to a different part of the world.
