The Experience

La idea es preparar y vender tragos, charlar con huéspedes, ayudarles en lo que necesiten, atenderlos, recibir sus pedidos y hacer buen ambiente en el bar. Organizar actividades para los huéspedes donde los voluntarios también pueden participar (por ejemplo juegos de mesa). Los tragos son fáciles y les vamos a enseñar como se preparan Los voluntarios deben mantener limpia el área de las actividades, bar y cocina junto con el resto del equipo.

I had a great time at the hostel. Loreen is very welcoming and friendly. We agreed the scheduled days and days off. The hours are reasonable, so I had plenty of time to explore Santiago. The hostel is very clean, which made the work more pleasant. I enjoyed working with reception and meeting the other volunteers! Overall I had a 10/10 time, thank you for having me ♥️

Loreen and all the staff at the hostel made me feel incredibly welcomed. The communal living spaces allows you to make many connections with other international travelers. Loreen is very accommodating with time off so I was able to explore places outside of Santiago. I would definitely recommend this place to others looking to volunteer at a hostel in Santiago!

This was my first worldpackers experience. I worked at the bar as a game organizer. Loreen gave me the freedom and space for me to do my thing. The work was simple and the hours where good. You work from tuesday - saturday from 18.00 to 23.00. The experience overall has been great! I have met many amazing people and discover a social side of me that I never knew was there. Thanks to Loreen and the staff for having me and giving me such a good time!

It was my first volunteering experience and I don't think I could have chosen a better place! I felt at home very quickly, I developed social skills I didn't even know I had, I danced, I smiled, I cried, I got sick, I dreamed... I felt alive! All the people, whether guests, staff or other volunteers, are incredible and, believe me, you'll find a family here. Also, a highlight for Loreen who was an incredible host and super understanding as I was working too. Finally, sentirei saudade, and thank you for the love and kindness I've received (and a special hug for Luck).

Volunteering in the hostel was such a great experience. Both the host and the other volunteers received me very kind and friendly. The most valuable thing I get from this experience is getting to know all the people I met. Being on the morning shift on breakfast allowed me to meet lovely people and make many friends all over the world. Thanks you so much for this wonderful experience. I highly recommend you to be a volunteer here. :)
