Absolutely amazing experience. Santiago is a beautiful and interesting city, and Meiga is a really fun and relaxed place to be. I made friends from all over the world and improved my Spanish. Thank you! :)

Mi experiencia en Meiga fue excepcional. Es un lugar muy lindo y con espacios para relajarte y disfrutar las vistas y la naturaleza.
Jorge es un anfitrión super atento y buena onda. La habitación que me asignó estuvo cómoda.
Debido al Covid habían pocos huéspedes pero aun así conocí muchas personas de varios países.
Me encantó Santiago y Meiga fue el mejor lugar para disfrutar esta bella ciudad.
Las tareas asignadas son muy fáciles de hacer. Un super plus las barbacoas en la terraza y los atardeceres. Me sentí como en casa.
También, encantado de conocer a Alicia y Paula, 2 amigas de Jorge.

Me hicieron sentir en casa desde el primer día. El Hostel tiene una energía y atmósfera acogedora al igual que la hermosa ciudad De Santiago que no tiene precio ni desperdicio.
Sobre el trabajo; no es nada matador y los horarios están muy bien repartidos! Infinitamente agradecido y ojalá nos veamos pronto!
