Hostel Vermont

.The Hostel is located in the town of Puerto Varas in the beautiful Lakes Region in Chile surrounded by lakes, volcanoes and National Parks. Close by there are grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, public transportation and the Llanquihue lake is just two blocks away! Puerto Varas offers endless fun activities in the summer time, on the lake you can go swimming, kayaking, stand up paddeling. An hour bus ride from town and you can be in Ensenada or trekking/rafting/camping/hiking at the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park and/or hiking the amazing perfect cone Osorno volcano! if you love trekking and rock climbing you can go for an adventure to Cochamó Valley which We are very proud to call the Yosemite of Chile! Also you can visit a few cute German looking towns like Puerto Octay, Frutillar and Puerto Varas and enjoy their arquitecture and sweet specialties like "Apfel Kuchen" Volunteers will have access to explore all of these places in their free time.

I'm an easy going Chilena girl in my thirties that loves to travel and meet new people, I have been working in the Hospitality Industry in the US and Chile for about 15 years. Currently I run a couple of small backpackers hostels and other small bussiness in the South of Chile and always need help with different projects. The Hostel is pretty small, we have about 25 beds, so volunteers will have a great chance to meet other travelers and have a great time. The Hostel it is located In a real "Casa Sureña" made of wood where the fire has to get started when is too cold and it is beautiful decorated inside, very artistic and colorfull and surrounded by a big garden! We like the motto "work hard, play hard". It definitely fits with us. We put lots of effort into what we do and once our job is over we make sure to enjoy ourselves by going out, having an asado or just going to the beach together when the weather is nice. We always look for new opportunities to make this experience better for us, so expect to be asked what you like about us and what we can improve on.

Hostel Vermont fue mi primer experiencia de voluntariado, y se la recomiendo a toda la comunidad worldpacker! Me sentí bien recibida en todo momento, las tareas son simples y queda mucho tiempo disponible para poder conocer la zona.
El equipo de trabajo es lo mejor del lugar! Es como una familia lejos de casa, los chicos me ayudaron siempre y fue muy divertido compartir con ellos, hice grandes amigos aquí.
El hostel es precioso, y está ubicado en un punto excelente para conocer bien Puerto Varas y para conectar con otros lugares cercanos a la zona.
Agradezco a Sirce por la oportunidad!

I LOVE THIS HOSTEL! The staff and owner, Sirce, are absolutely incredible. My world packing experience was focused on working on the hostel's social media and update the website. Sirce gave me full flexibility to create my own schedule, which is perfect for this type of work and was super open to learning so that she can continue the work once I left. The vibe is the hostel is really great, they make you feel like family. <3 Puerto Varas is an awesome town to visit and would recommend this place to anyone.




Simplesmente amei! Fui super bem recepcionada pela Sirce e pelo Elkin. As tarefas são bem tranquilas de fazer, o hostal é lindo e bem cuidado, fora a própria cidade de Puerto Varas que é preciosa. Fui embora mas já quero voltar ♥️




Mejor experiencia de mi vida, hostal hermoso, tareas y horarios tranquilo, anfitriã muy buena persona y un amor de persona. Una lastima que tuve que regresar antes del final de mi estancia por problemas personales. Agradezco a todo el equipo y especialmente Sirce. Fue un mes de mucho aprendizaje y momentos buenos.




Puedo resumir en una palabra ... increíble!
Fue mi primera experiencia como voluntaria y ahora no quiero parar.
El Hostel Vermont es maravilloso, los empleados son amables y claro que no podría dejar de hablar de Sirce una anfitriona nota 10.
El trabajo es bien tranquilo ellos siguen exactamente como consta en la descripción, además de todos en el hostal ayudar.
El intercambio de experiencia es rico, volví con un bagaje enorme de nuevos amigos y recuerdos una ciudad hermosa.
Super indico el Hostel Vermont, ya sea que no olvidará jamás.
Ya extraño a todos...
