My experience was simply amazing. The tasks are easy and have an excellent environment, with excellent management, all volunteers and employees are polite and committed. It was a great experience for me, it helped me to improve french and i could also enjoy the city that is beautiful. The hours are flexible and there is a big discount on drinks. Highly recommend.

This is a big and nice hostel.
There is a lot of cleaning to do, but the staff is really nice, friendly and easy going, which makes everyday easy and fun.
Also, Chamrousse is a lovely village in the alps with some nice paths with beautiful views to take a walk and nice pictures. The prices to practice winter sports are also very cheap. Really enjoyable.

At first I would stay two weeks, but ask to stay two more weeks. The hostel is really cool. Chamrousse is also a cool place. Flor and Beth are friendly, polite and very welcoming. The tasks were simple and we had free time to ski and Snowboarding. I would like to come back next year and come back speaking French (I promise). Thank you so much for the stay. I wish all the best for you Flor and Beth.

El Hostel es perfecto, el cuarto de voluntarios es grande y tiene todas las comodidades. Buena comida, muy buena onda en todo el staff. El trabajo no es difícil ni toma mucho tiempo. Tristemente no pude conocer los alrededores por el coronavirus, pero el lugar es hermoso, recomiendo hacer voluntariado acá.

C'était une expérience fantastique. Il y a une atmosphère vraiment agréable entre les volontaires et les personnes qui travaillent dans l'auberge. Flo, le patron fait tout pour que vous vous sentiez bien. Il y a de très bonnes fêtes au bar et vous avez le temps de faire du ski. Les horaires de travail sont flexibles et vous n'avez jamais à travailler seul. Je le recommanderais vraiment si vous aimez les montagnes et que vous souhaitez vivre dans une auberge dans les Alpes.
