I enjoyed my volunteering in Portel del Sur more than expected! Mariano is such a warmhearted human who always supports you. The Hostel itself is really charming and peaceful , the rooftop just makes it more comfortable! All the volunteers are friendly and open- minded!!! I would recommend Portal del Sur everyone who wants to enjoy their time in Buenos Aires!




One of the best experiences in my life! This is how I can describe the work exchange opportunity I had in Portal del Sur during the last summer. I went there with a goal in mind: practice my spanish. But I got a lot more than that! The hostel has the best location in Buenos Aires, near to the main places and next to metro stations. Nonetheless, I spent some time inside the hostel, just chilling at the rooftop and making new friends. The volunteer crew was the best! I've never been in a hostel with so many friendly people. Thanks Mariano and Pablo for this great time there. I will be back!




Portal del Sur was a Home for me during one month. I spent an amazing time with the staff and other travelers from all around the world. The job is super nice and an oportunity to learn a lot! I’ll miss it




Great experience with great people ! :)




I worked for one month in the rooftop bar in Portal del Sur, and I had a wonderful time there! The job itself is simple and very easy to learn. There is a chill and cosey vibe and you'll have lots of time to talk to the people, having fun and enjoy the beautiful view from the bar.
The hostel is a beautiful place to live with comfortable shared areas. As a volunteer you will quickly become apart of a lovely community with the other volunteers. I have had a lot of great experiences partying, exploring the city, cooking and just watching movies and chilling with the people I met here. Thank you!
