WineBox Hotel

Coming to stay with us is a great oportunity to get to know Valparaiso, from an unique spot in the city, that has amazing views of the city, a cool enviroment and sutainable design, it is also 5 minutes away from the downtown (walking) and 20 minutes away from the main touristic area. We invite you to be a part of our friendly team, get to know guests from all over the world and stay in a reused - reacontitioned container. We acomodate our volunteers in the hotel rooms (two people max per room), every room is an independent unit with a private bathroom and a small kitchen, that conects to a big terrace with a wide view of the city and the ocean.

We are a hotel, made with recycled shipping containers, placed in a residencial hill of Valparaiso (A city declared a world heritage site). The spirit from the beggining was to create awarness by building a project based on sustainable practices, using recycled materials an methods, and also incorporating a wine concept, wanting to educate locals and foreigners about chilean wine, in a accesible and more relaxed way, that's why we have a small on site winery and also work with local producers (wineries) promoting their products and turism programms. Most of our team members are "porteños" (people that has been born and raised in Valparaiso) and fairly new porteños (my partner and I have been living in the city for 12-10 years). Everyone is very friendly and eager to get to know people from different places and backgrounds.

¡Me encantó mi experiencia en Winebox! es un hotel muy bonito y colorido, la habitación de los voluntarios es muy bonita y cómoda y las tareas son muy tranquilas. Los empleados son muy amables y Valparaíso es un encanto, una ciudad llena de arte y cultura que merece ser visitada, yo pasaría más tiempo allí visitando las playas, dunas y subiendo cerros 💛

Big plus is that you have your own apartment, or sharing with another volunteer. Beautiful views over Valpo.
Working hours give you a lot of spare time to experience the town.

It is a cool hotel with potential. I was volunteering off season though which might affected the experience since there weren’t many guests. Many times you didn’t have anything to do.

I believe management needs some stepping up, both for the guests’ experience but also for volunteers.
2 people that worked there quit during my 2 weeks, I didn’t feel a team spirit, might be a connection.

Pasé unas semanas genialisimas en Winbox Hotel, la habitación es espectacular, las vistas increíbles todo el staff muy simpático. Las tareas son faciles e interesantes especialmente si te gusta trabajar en un bar o cocinar. No se conecta mucho con los viajeros porque el ambiente es más hotel, así que no te esperas un hostal con muchos jovenes compartiendo experiencias por la noche jugando a las cartas. El ambiente es más tranquilo y respetuoso de los huéspedes que vienen para relajarse y disfrutar de un buen vino.

Pasamos 2 semanas muy buenas en Winebox. Las instalaciones son increíbles; una habitación amplia, con cocina y baño propios, así como vistas al mar. Las tareas han sido sencillas (principalmente atender a los clientes del bar del hostal) y el equipo de trabajadoras muy agradable. Sin duda muy recomendable!!!

This was an absolutely amazing place to volunteer! The staff was so welcoming and friendly and even very helpful when getting adjusted to the area! The work was fun and most of the time we were either tending the bar, making pizzas and desserts or helping to clean around the hotel. The room they give you is spectacular, it is not shared as we expected! We got our own room with a kitchen and groceries each week to make our own food. It is a great location in Valparaiso to volunteer, Vina Del Mar is just 30 minutes up the coast and Concon is just 45 min. I highly recommend volunteering here!!!
