José es muy agradable persona, se mantiene super ocupado todo el tiempo, es alguien muy trabajador y carismático. el anfitrión es un lugar super comodo e higiénico. Parece que estuvieras en tu casa, el personal muy respetuoso, talvez lo único que no me agrado del todo es que José te pone a ayudar menos horas de las establecidas con tareas tan sencillas que hasta parece que te estas aprovechando de mas de su hospitalidad.
