The Experience

Basically, the day starts at 9.30am with the housekeeper. You clean the room, including making the beds, vacuum, clean the bathroom... Once the rooms are finished, you could clean the kitchen or vacuum the stairs. Then your shift is over, time to hit the mountain and enjoy the endless tracks. There is a free shuttle running from the hostel to the ski lifts. Enjoy the facilities of the hostel like the bar, tv lounge and all the activities offered!

The experience at the hostel was amazing! You only work a few hours in the morning and in the afternoon you are free to explore the hikes in the french alpes. The hostel is pretty cool with a nice bar and foodtruck in front of it. Jason and the staff are always ready to give you tips of what to do around also. Chatel is a small town, but if u enjoy spending time at the nature i'm sure you gonna love it as I did. Totally recommend it.

I had an amazing experience in Chatel. The hostel is amazing, with a great energy and a nice bar/food truck. Close to the Hostel you can do a lot of hikes and find lakes around the montains. Jason and the staff are amazing and always ready to help. The working schedule is great, you only work in the mornings so u have enough time to discovery the area in the rest of the day. I hope to come back someday, for sure!

1861 Chatel hostel has been an incredible experience for me. From the moment I arrived Jason was sweet and helpful. I was able to practice my french and english. The staff speak spanish as well. They were very nice and friendly.
The working schedule left enough time to do other things throughout the afternoon and it was flexible to allow us to travel around.
The bar is a perfect place to meet people and eat a delicious hamburguer from the food truck :) We have had great discounts and some free drinks!
I feel so grateful for everything!
I totally recommend volunteering.

Châtel is an amazing place and the hostel even more. I felt at home from the start and all the people helped me a lot in every way. Jason is a very calm boss, fair and open to talk and give you tips of where to go and what to do. I worked on the cleaning team and the work is not heavy at all and the working hours also. It is such an amazing place that you arrive and don't want to leave anymore. I have to say that was one of the best experiences I have had so far. I strongly recommend this place!! :)
