What an amazing ten or so days. This was my second Workaway experience and it was a proper adventure throughout. Görlitz and Bautzen are two cities within bracing but comfortable cycling distance (1.5 hours) from Buchholz. I am massively grateful to Martin, Martina and the many other good people who live at the Buchholz place. I have never been fed so much food in my entire life. It was also a pleasure to meet the folks at the Josua Gemeinde in Bautzen, not least for the chance to try my German with so many different people. This is what Workaway is all about!

My stay with Isabel and Carlos was absolutely incredible! They are wonderful people – open, genuine, fun and caring! I already miss them a lot! I have been extremely lucky to be a part of their lives for one month this summer. I was warmly welcomed into their lovely family and friends with open arms despite my poor Spanish. They showed me so many beautiful places in Galicia and shared so much with me of their fascinating culture and fiestas, amazing food (the best seafood!), great time with fantastic friends and lots of laughs! Isabel went above and beyond to make sure my stay was enjoyable and I never wanted to leave! ;) Such a heartwarming experience! I would definitely recommend staying with them if you want to feel so lucky in your life ;) and I’m sure you will fall in love with Beautiful Galicia and Super Nice people there! It was truly one of the Best and the Most Beautiful experiences of my life :) Thank you so much again for everything, Isabel and Carlos! I can’t wait to see you again, Love you all! ;) Yuri

Our experience with Oktay in Goreme was very positive. We loved the area, the scenery is absolutely unique, as is the experience of seeing all the balloons! The communication before and during the stay was excellent. Oktay is a very busy man with a job and a young family as well as the business he is setting up, but his whatsapp responses were always prompt and helpful. He arranged our transfer from the airport at a considerable discount and met us personally. The little bungalow which serves as both office and accommodation is basic but adequate and is clean and tidy. Everything works. The location is in a quiet area but within easy walking distance of the main parts of the town.The centre of Goreme is pleasant but very touristy. However you can walk out of this in five or ten minutes and be in empty beautiful countryside. The work was straight forward really, Oktay gave us a list of tasks and left us to get on with them. We were fine with this, researching and writing English text for his websites. We had the opportunity to make many walks out into the surrounding area which were delightful. Due to his committments we didn't see Oktay very often regarding the work so it is good to have an independent, self starting disposition. Oktay's English is very good and he is a friendly, kind, personable host. He invited us to his family house in Avonos for a delicious meal shortly before we left, which was a totally lovely evening. So, thank you Oktay for letting us share a bit of your life and work out in beautiful Goreme, and best of luck with your business venture!

This place is perfect if you want more free time and loved choice your start. You can manage your day with 3 hours work and you get for accommodation caravan where you can cook for breakfast and dinner. And buy products for this with own money. Host offer big and tasty English meal for lunch. Village located in beautiful surrounding and there is lot of animal: deers, foxes etc. Work is easy and depending at season. I was there in autumn and swiped leaves up, cleaning, cutting brushes and so on. I liked conversations with Andrew and Sharon, they are nice people.

Me ha encantado conocer a Nemo, es tranquilo y agradable, muy amable y colaborador en todo. Como voluntario ha sido excelente, muy trabajador y super responsable. Tal vez no hemos podido comunicarnos del todo bien debido a que mi ingles es muy basico y el esta,aprendiendo español, pero el intercambio cultural y de idioma ha sido muy interesante. Estoy muy feliz de haber tenido a Nemo en mi casa.

Trabajar con claudia, Daniel y todo el equipo de voluntarios y el personal del hotel fue muy enriquecedor, aprendimos mucho, a veces el trabajo es variado, y tienes que hacer varias areas, tal vez un dia el desayuno, al otro limpieza y al otro recepción, pero todo depende de tu versatilidad para desempeñarte. Pasamos un mes viviendo y ayudando en el hotel, el ambiente es relajado, tienes que trabajar 5hsx5dias de la semana, pero siempre hay tiempo para ir a la playa, estar en la picina, paseando por samara y pasando un buen rato. Samara es un hermoso lugar. Claudia y daniel son muy calidos, atentos, buenas personas, siempre dispuestos a ayudar, buscan personas responsables y comprometidas, si son uno de esos no dudes en enviarles solicitud, sin dudar la pasaras increible! Muchas gracias de corazón por todo, se volvieron familia. pura vuda

Magda is 10 out of 10! :) She is an energetic polish girl with a latin soul always ready to dance and sing and to cheer up the whole room with her big smile. It's great to have her around! All the tasks that were put in front of her were always delivered with no issues. She also learns new things really fast and always with joy. And she really does love people as it says in her profile! We will miss our "polonesa" See you :*

Incluso si la comunicacion no fue facil debido a mi falta de hablar correctamente el espanol, fue la vez genial en el lugar de Ester! Alli aprendi mucho , no solo hablar mejor espanol, sino tambien sobre la construccion de una casa solo con materiales de naturales y es un ser humano excelente y super agradable. Su lugar esta un poco fuera de Leon, por lo que tiene una naturaleza agradable y relajante y esta bastante alli, asi que es un lugar realmente tranquilo y calmarse para estar. Me quede mas tiempo de lo que pensaba primero y ella tambien echo un vistazo a mi mochila cuando viajaba un poco mas y regreso. :) El trabajo no es mucho, tranquilo y esta sucio, asi que no deberias preocuparte por tener barro mientras trabajas! ;) Muchas gracias Ester por tu agradable compania, por ser tu, el tiempo y tus ensenanzas. Estoy emocionado por la proxima visita y lo grande que se estaba volviendo tu jungla. :D Even if the communication was not so easy cause of my lack of speaking properly spanish was the time at Esters place great! I learned a lot there, not only speaking better spanish also about constructing a house with just natural materials and she is just a great and super nice human being. Her place is a bit outside of Leon, so she got nice and calming nature around and it's quite there so a real peacefull place to be and calm down. I stayed longer then I was thinking first and she also had a eye on my backpack when I was traveling a bit again and came back. :) The work is not very much and very tranquilo but dirty so you shouldn't mind to have mud on you while working! ;) Thanks a lot Ester for your nice company, of being you, the time and your teachings! I'm excited for the next visit and how big your jungle was getting. :D

I arrived during a very, very difficult and sad time for Dani and Beate - and yet they still managed to be excellent hosts :) They are patient, strong and caring people who have a lot of knowledge to share. They made sure I was very comfortable in their lovely b&b house and I’m positive I put on weight from all the yummy food!! The work I did was easy - mostly helping to move animals from one field to another, cleaning up all different shapes and sizes of poo, feeding and watering animals and weeding. I also enjoyed repairing the many bikes lurking around in the shed and of course cooking and eating with the groups who visit the place :) I took my days off together so that I could go on a walking/camping trip - the area is beautiful to explore and there are lots of walker-friendly paths dotted around and about. I will never forget the silliness of holding up traffic while walking the camels through the village - it makes me smile every time I think about it!! Thank you Dani and Beate, I learned a lot in those two short weeks and had a lot of fun too :)

We stayed at this hostel for a total of 3 weeks doing wall art all around the property and were welcomed and treated wonderfully by all the staff throughout our stay! Our artistic contributions and ideas were valued and our hosts fed us very well and made us feel very at ease. It was a really great experience overall and we would recommend it to anyone! :)

I stayed at Chathura's place for 1 week for an art project (wall painting). It was my first volunteering experience and my first week in Sri Lanka as well, and I couldn't have expected a better way to start my journey in this beautiful country. I met lots of wonderful people in this hostel. Even though Chathura was not around very often due to busy schedule, he and the locals working there always made sure I had everything I needed to have a pleasant stay while volunteering. Thank you for this great experience !

Con Rebekka todo fué perfecto, es una chica muy agradable, super correcta,los niños estaban muy contentos de compartir con ella su tiempo. El tiempo que estuvo con nosotros fue un miembro más de la familia, se integró perfectamente en nuestro pueblo. Es una pena que estuviese tan solo 15 días con nosotros, nos habría gustado compartir más tiempo con ella. Tal vez en otra ocasión...?? Siempre serás bienvenida en nuestra casa, hasta siempre Rebekka!!

I've spent amazing 6 weeks at Dominique's place and learnt many things! I've tried vegetarian lifestyle, learnt how to cook amazing meals from the ingredients which we picked up in the garden and in the forest, did a lot of sports (surf, kayaking), tried bachata dances and improved my french. Dominique is a very welcoming person and he always takes time to explain the things you are interested in. Besides that you will live in the middle of the forest so it's a great location for nature lovers. Thank you Dominique for this wonderful experience!!!

This was my first workaway experience ever and i was completely impressed. My host Andrei was absolutely amazing from start to finish. He was extremely patient and kind throughout my entire experience and was always there if i had any questions or doubts about anything. The atmosphere of the hostel was completely laid-back and very very clean and well organized. I definitely learned alot from this experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. I would highly recommend anyone looking to do a workaway in puerto vallarta to check out this amazing hostel & its' owner (Andrei). Thank you so much for everything and making my experience worth wild! Hope to see you again soon! 🤗
