To do an exchange work with Josue is more a vacation than a real job. He would provide you a great accomodation: a large bedroom with private bath in a house that is confortable and extremely clean. He likes to keep everything in order and tidy, and he needs a bit of help to fix some things here and there, jobs doable from any person who has basic maintenance and gardening skills. In my short stay I felt welcomed; Jo has been extremely nice every time he had a chance; we had had nice conversations and he also took me around with his car on his free time. We went together to UNESCO protected site Xochimilco Embarcadero and to the famous city market nearby. Because of his suggestions I also visited the Dolores Olmedo Museum (highly recommended!) and a Cultural Center nearby, where I saw some interesting Arte Popolare Mexicana with 'Alebrijes'. His kitchen is well furnished so I had the chance to cook and bake some tasty food and share it with him as well. One evening he prepared for me a slurpy Brazilian dessert too :P So in my venture I felt I was staying at a old friend house. I enjoyed very much our mutual traveling tales and definitely I have to say it has been a great exchange. I highly recommend to get the opportunity to meet Mr. Gonzales de Leon while traveling in Mexico City.

If your needs match Katharina's skillset consider yourself lucky! Not only did she excel at the business tasks at hand, she went above and beyond her 'duties' by showing innate compassion and care-taking for our dear Julia. Katharina has many 'hidden' talents. Most important, she has a character quality which likely cannot be learned. This is a remarkable young person whom I can't find enough kinds words. If I had to find constructive criticism, I'd be at a loss; 'let us help you more and don't take everything on yourself'? might be all I could offer to this intelligent, independent, and at times stubborn ( wanting to manage on her own ) young person.

What an amazing experience. First I have to say that this is not only my first workaway experience but also my first time out of my country. I felt so welcomed by Connie, who is a person full of energy and good vibes, always singing and saying things to invite to reflection, with tons of stories that are super interesting and full of wisdom. The place is AMAZING, literally a little piece of heaven, crystal clear water on the river nearby, a natural pool to relax, the landscape ufff all those mountains looks just like a painting, something taken out of a dream, the sunsets. I loved the dogs they're sooo friendly. You will never be bored, there are thousands of things to do and Connie's vision about the place is magnificent. Totally recommended.

Really nice person. Showed up in a pinch and helped out until my next helper showed up. I would highly recommend her for anything you choose for her to do. Bruce

Loved my two month stay here, for so many reasons: - Clear expectations of work (Thee 8 hour shifts a week, and helping with the BBQ on Sundays) - Lovely, cosy, and homely hostel. It quickly became a home away from home. Much more personal feeling than other hostels I've stayed/worked in. - Perfect facilities, kitchen, chillout area, tv, computer, beds, hot showers, wifi. - People. It attracted a really nice bunch of people from all over the world to both stay there and volunteer there. Absolutely perfect. Thanks so much, peeeaaacceeeee

Maurice is a lovely boy. Proactive at work and he enjoys being in motion and, above all ... an amazing chef! A pleasure to taste his daily dishes. In two weeks we have built a woodcutter, fixed the gray waters and shared a lot of good times! Thanks!!

This was a little different Workaway arrangement, as I asked Erica if she would house- and pet sit for me. She agreed and before my trip we were together few days, so she could settle in and learn what needs to be done. She was very good with the pets, I could see straight away she will take good and loving care of my dog and cat. I felt she was trustworthy, I wasn't really worried when i was gone. I saw she really enjoyed healthy cooking and I think she would be a great help in the kitchen for any workaway hosts. She is a young woman who can contribute in many kinds of projects!

Dustin was a perfect volunteer, gentle, interesting, companionable,confident and good to look at. We miss him already. He stayed for 2 weeks and sometimes the weather was bad but he didn't mind boring tasks like nut cracking. On good days we happily worked on outdoor jobs together. We taught him how to prune fruit trees and made a lovely small garden. He loved exploring our amazing region of Golden Bay. For us old-timers it was a treat to have the company of such a personable young man for the time we had together.

It was a really nice experience there! The environment is just great. I met a lot of people, workers, other volunteers, and as well guests from all over. It was always quite entertaining, and I could learn a lot as well. The place is very well located and the work is quite okay in exchange for the acomodation. I wish you all the best to all of you, see you!

It was my first workaway experience and I am more than happy to go to this hostel. There is a very friendly, relaxing atmosphere and a beautiful view on the Loch you can see through the window in the cosy lounge. The staff are so welcoming and kind. I made great friends and had a valuable experience there. The division of tasks is clear and well organised. Thank you very much for this unforgettable experience. Unfortunately I did not spot Nessie ;(

We hosted Kristyna for about two months, it has been a great experience of exchange for her and our family too. Our children felt in love with her calm and positive behaviour, she has been very helpfull playing with our children and helping us with some home works, even if it was not asked to her to do it. We enjoyed the time spent togheter, we loved to have her in our family. We truly reccomend her, a very polite and sweet girl.

It is an honour to give the first feedback to Viviane! It was my first workawayer experience, and well, I have to admit that I was very very lucky. After this experience I am looking forward to getting the other opportunities hoping that each will be as it was with Viviane. I could tell many things for which I am very grateful: -Viviane is a talkative person who helped me a lot in improving my French and she explained many things to me, we spoke a lot!! -The work with Viviane was very kind, she always gave things to us and asked if we liked it or not and so on. She was caring about us (me and a travelbuddy). -Viviane is a wonderful cook! I tried out many things her for the first time in my life and all experience was so good! (snail, humus, fresh trout from the river...) -The house was very comfortable, we got everything we needed. -The samoyed, Happache is a wooonderful dog! I miss him so much! -Viviane gave us many possibilities of cultural exchange and knowledge of the surroundings, we went concerts, hiking in the mountaines, even in Italy together. and so on... The time there was really like spending a time with a grand family. I cannot thank enough to Viviane for the possibility to be in Bramans! I learnt so much and I enjoyed it so much! Thank you!

Tamara is a very sweet natured person with an excellent work ethic. She was always ready to help out and is fast and efficient! I had to chuckle when I gave a job that I thought would take a few days. She finished it in a matter of hours! Tamara was the best volunteer we have had when it came to gardening. Amazing!! We also appreciated how she interacted with our dogs. Meikie, our sheltie, especially misses her and she went to her room to see if she was still here. We all appreciated the time you shared with us and we wish you all the best! Thank you Tamara!!!!

Mon temps passé à Flying Crocodile était magnifique. La nature autour est stupéfiante; les oiseaux, les singes, les insectes.... Le terrain de l'hotel est vraiment bien aménagé et très comfortable. Manu est une femme exceptionnelle; elle a une belle énergie, très directe et elle prend en charge son projet d'une manière impeccable. J'ai beaucoup aimé discuté avec elle! J'ai aussi eu la chance de jouer avec Sasha et de faire de l'acro-yoga avec elle :-) Le travail est très simple; il s'agit de rester à l'accueil et de cuisiner lorsque les clients souhaitent manger dans le 'home restaurant'. Je trouve très sympa le fait qu'on avait beaucoup de liberté pour cuisiner nos propres recettes et servir les clients de manière naturelle et plutôt relax. La clientèle est habituellement très sympathique à cet endroit aussi! Finalement le travail là-bas en vaut la peine: nous avons un horaire flexible, ce n'est pas trop loin de Samara (pas en saison des pluies), on peut utiliser les accommodations de l'hotel (piscine, laveuse, sécheuse, cuisine, wi-fi...). Par contre, si vous voulez bouger autour et découvrir les alentours, il vous faudra faire des contacts et trouver des manières par vous-mêmes ! J'ai dû quitter plus tôt cet emplacement car j'ai eu un changement de plan de dernière minute- j'espère que ce n'était pas trop compliqué pour Manu et tout le monde! Merci encore pour cette belle expérience ! Je recommande fortement ;-)

Clara stayed with us on our farm for some time this summer. She is a very nice easy going person. She is reliable and responsible and I am very satisfied with her work which was to take care of our farmshop. She asked to make sure she understood everything right. So I felt I could trust her, which she also showed that I could. Her English is very good. She is very tidy - well, in all ways a very nice workawayer. She is welcome back any time.

With Stine we share 1 month in his beautiful country house. It is an incredibly peaceful place surrounded by sown fields and only 1km from a large cliff overlooking the sea. The work we did was simple and did not require much effort. Stine received visits from friends and family. Everyone was very kind to us. His parents are amazing. Stine is a simple person who enjoys good music, from her garden and to whom we appreciate the confidence of being alone in her house 4 days when she traveled on her vacation. Thanks for everything Stine!
