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.
