          Hola mi nombre es Francisca y quiero saber si puedo trabajar en su hostal. Soy de Chile, viví un año en Australia así que hablo y entiendo todo en inglés. En estos momentos estoy en guatemala pero quiero ir a san Cristóbal, ya fuy una vez pero por poco tiempo y me encanto. Es por eso que esta vez quisiera trabajar o hacer un voluntariado para conocer el lugar y quedarme el mayor tiempo posible. Tengo bastante experiencia en hostales y me encanta trabajar en ellos, porque conoces muchos viajeros y llegas a conocer el lugar de verdad. Ojala podamos trabajar juntos Esperando una pronta respuesta saludos Fran
