Beeing a volunteer at GreenHouse was a great experience! Although it was during the riots, the people were very friendly and helpful! I recommend volunteering there and enjoy La Paz!

I had a really great experience on Green House. Everyone who works there were super receptive and helped me a lot with the local language and customs. La Paz is a very good place for those looking for beautiful landscapes without spend much money. I recommend

I had a fantastic time at Greenhouse. The team is amazing, funny and really, really helpful. Also are Flavio and Sergio, the owners!
So, if you're looking for volunteering in La Paz, you must apply to Greenhouse. I'm sure you won't regret! 😊😊😊

Sadly, my experience was not a good one. My laundry went missing under the service of the Hostel. When I attempted to collect it, the bag had disappeared. Security cameras showed the laundry being returned on site. It was agreed that management would reimburse at least, costs for replacements. Yet to receive any compensation and am still out of pocket for the hostel's unreliability. There was no formal volunteer roster during my stay and as such, I was always given contradictory instructions from multiple managers. Made to work 10+ hours more than the set 24hrs advertised in first week.
