One month down! Punto Sur Hostel was our home this past month.
We made friends that we will never forget and created a home here. Gaby the manager gave us all the hook ups with shifts we wanted and a private room. She was a real hard ass 😉 The private room was a huge deal. We spent the first week in an attic filled with bunks and stinky boys. Martin the owner treated us like we were family, trusting us to buy food for the hostel and he even had keith playing soccer with his friends.
Keith kicked the ball over one of his buddy’s heads (in soccer terms, a rainbow) and that apparently was a big no no….Martin made sure keith knew not to do that again. We knew all was forgiven when he gave Keith a River jersey before leaving. River is one of the better Argentine futbol teams in the league and Martin was a big fan.
Saying goodbye at the bus stop was bitter sweet. We really created a family
I want to share pictures and give everyone a full view of where we lived
and worked this past month.
The attic: 2 bunks and 1 shit wooden plank haha
The kitchen: leaking pipies, stinky dish water, premium cooking utensils
and one working oven
The common area: here we spent hours playing intense Uno games
Our new room:
Shared bathroom: water was either boiling or freezing, we showered at the
Sunrises and view from the patio:
Shifts: there were 3 shifts and generally this is what we were responsible
1. 8 am to 4 pm : serve breakfast, check outs (collect money and keys),
make beds with new sheets, empty garbage (we throw the TP in the
trash….) sweep, and make lunch for the volunteers.
2. 4 pm to 12 am : pair sheets together, make dinner and answer guests
questions on trips/excursions
3. 12am to 8am : kick all the partiers out at midnight, make bread, deal
with drunkies as they stumble in forgetting the door code, late check in,
start breakfast at 7:50am and then go back to sleep!!
