It was the best experience I've ever had in my entire life! Jason is an amazing host, super kind and friendly! The working schedule is great, the place is beautiful and you get to connect with nature and see amazing landscapes. The other volunteers were awesome people and we spend so many great moments together! I am really grateful for my season here :)

I loved every moment of this experience. Jason is a great host, he helps with anything you need, he knows a lot of hikes and cool places to go around Châtel and is very kind and fair with the amount of work. The team and him made my experience perfect and I wouldn’t change a single thing.
I even extended my stay because I don’t want to leave :)
If you love nature, hiking and mountains, this is the place to go.
Thanks for everything <3

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.
