Program Details

We would like to receive volunteers that have a traveler's spirit, that like to share experiences with our guests and enthusiastically contribute to the general collaboration of all that the hostel needs. For us, customer service is number one, we really like to see to it that each guest has an unforgettable experience with us. We are the first ecological hostel of Puerto Varas; recycling and cultivating the garden is in our essence and so we would like to have volunteers that feel they identify with our vision. Plans for volunteers are designed for a minimum of 15 days of stay, always with the option to extend if there is availability. It's not necessary to speak English, but we believe you should practice languages for your own personal growth.

Activities & Shift

The idea is for each volunteer to help us with the following tasks: Preparing breakfast, jobs in the organic garden, general cleaning of rooms and common areas. The tasks will only be done during the mornings, giving the volunteer total freedom to be able to go out and get to know the diverse tourist destinations of the area during the whole rest of the day. The most important thing, is that the volunteer has 2 days off per week and all our support so that their stay is pleasant and comfortable. We have comfortable facilities to make your stay very pleasant.
