Sara and Oscar were great, they spoke to me Spanish all the time so that I could practice, and Luca, the dog, is lovely! The amount of work was fair, I had to clean the hostel up and do gardening in the morning and I was free all afternoon. Around the little house where we were living it's full of nice spots and hiking routes you can do, if you love being isolated in nature it's perfect! My bedroom was quiet damp so they gave me a dehumidifier, it didn't solve it but they did all the could to make me feel comfortable!



I had an amazing time at A Fabrica. It's in a beautiful area of Galicia, and is well worth the visit. Sara, Oscar, and their staff are great people and the hours were very fair - I had heaps of time to myself and lots of opportunities to visit the surrounding villages, as well as multiple day trips to Ourense. The work was mainly outside doing general gardening duties such as weeding, trimming hedges, sweeping and other odd jobs, as well as in the hostel doing beds, washing and cleaning. The work was easy and varied.
I'll definitely be back to visit!



Mi oportunidad se ha dado en invierno, Sara y Óscar me ofrecieron una habitación privada en su hogar puesto que el albergue está cerrado en esta temporada, todo muy cómodo allí y la comida que me ofrecieron fue deliciosa siempre. Las tareas con las que pude colaborar fueron de mantenimiento, ayudando a mejorar las condiciones del albergue para su apertura en primavera. Se nota que pasar tiempo en el albergue en épocas en que esté abierto sería increíble, es un lugar mágico en medio de la naturaleza, y se pueden hacer recorridos recargantes de energía por allí cerca. ¡Gracias Sara y Óscar!



A Fábrica Da Luz fue mi primera experiencia en Worldpackers y la verdad que estoy muy contento. Las tareas que realicé fueron desde mantenimiento, limpieza, soporte en los servicios que brindamos, ir a hacer compras, jardinería, etc. Es un plus el estar rodeado de naturaleza, aire puro y tranquilidad en una vieja central hidroeléctrica junto al Río Mao. El staff también hizo su parte: Sara y Óscar fueron flexibles y siempre dispuestos a dar más de lo que uno espera; Lois y Carmen fueron los mejores cocineros; y Mari y Alba fueron grandes compañeras de trabajo. Disfruten éste lugar y su gente!



la verdad no tengo palabras para describirlo, desde el momento que llegue me senti como en casa, sara y oscar me hicieron sertir parte de la familia, el lugar para los que nos gusta la montaña es un paraiso en el mundo, cuando salis a recorrer tenes de compañera a luka ( la perra de los chicos) la comida genial, los dos son muy buenos cocineros, y el trabajo tranquilo y suave, la verdad una experiencia perfecta no le agregaria nada, espero volver algun dia.
