Flor and Pablo make you feel part of their family from the start, it feels like you always knew each other and not like a newcomer.Their daughter Emma is always curious to get to know the volunteers and blas is always a fun soul to hang around and watch him talk trough dance. Workwise, you rarely work alone, the tasks are simple from making bread and jams to check ins/outs. Every week or so there's an asado accompanied by a guitar. If you're vegan, Pablo will surprise you with some tasty meals. I stayed for 1 month and would definitely extend if I had the time. #achalayesfamilia

My stay in Achalay is such a memorable experience! Everything described on the worldpackers page was followed and provided. The owners are very hospitable and I as volunteer had a lot of free time to explore the city and its surroundings. I enjoyed learning about the hostels work, share meals, prepare food for breakfast and socialize with the guests. The hostel is in the center and has everything you need. If you go to Bariloche, only Achalay!

At first I was a little nervous cause it was going to be my first experience volunteering in a hostel and it exceeded my expectations. Pablo the owner and his wife treated me like family, they made feel like home. I was taught everything I needed to know about reception, I learned how to make the bread and jams for breakfast cause the goal of this hostel is to make feel the guests like home. Pablo gave me and my coworkers the trust to run his hostel during our shifts and I discovered my passion about cooking. I've made friends that will last forever. So THANKS PABLO.

Being a volunteer in Achalay is honestly a great experience! I´m staying longer than my plan due to the nice enviroment, the people and the place itself.
Pablo and Florencia really make us feel like part of this home that Achalay is.
As a volunteer I´m working as the ad said, 32 hours a week in the recepcionist, welcoming the guest, preparing bread for breakfast, making sure everything in the hostel is working propertly, and of course, having fun!! Sometimes we prepare dinners for guest and staff, we cook together, share some asado and participate in tours. Its GREAT!
