La mejor experiencia en wordparkers, el hostel es muy lindo y tranquilo, el trabajo fue bueno. Comparti con gente maravillosa, gracias a Cristino, su familia y todo el equipo de Refugio Nomade. Sin duda lo recomiendo, espero volver algun dia.




A Estadia foi boa , obrigado Mateus , Gabriel , Tasila por me ajudarem quando precisava , o obrigado Christiano pela paciência , nem fez bem as coisas, agradeço muito e espero repassar aí um dia . Forte abraço e até a próxima




La verdad, qe Cristiano y su familia te hacen sentir como en tu casa, Muy amables y atentos a las necesidades de uno, no dudaria en volver. La pase muy bien.
