The Experience

Hey! It's Matias here, I run a very nice and small hostel in the heart of Mendoza, next to attractions in a super friendly neighborhood. Tasks are really simple: helping with breakfast, making beds, be at front desk doing check ins and outs, and keeping the house clean and organized - and mainly sharing with other travellers like you! Our goal is to have happy guests and volunteers enjoying their stay with us! :)

When I arrived in Mendoza, I was so surprised about the city. I'm Brazilian and it was my first international experience. Staying in the hostel was incredible. Also, the hostel is near Plaza Italia, which is so beautiful. We had a strong team and Matias is like Wonka and the team as Umpa Lumpa 🤣❤️ Today I can say that we develop a family there. Parents from Germany and sons from Netherlands, Argentina and Brazil, all of us as volunteers. It's necessary to do good work and I feel that I know more about how volunteering works. I'm very grateful 🥰

Thanks for your help Jessi, we are all really happy to meet you!



This is not the first time I am volunteering at a hostel. But I can definitely say that this was one of the best experiences that I had as a volunteer. The hostel is clean and beautiful, and everyone is nice and helping. I must say it felt like home.

Matias is a great guy who helped us every time we need it. We met a lot of cool people and staying at the volunteers house was a great experience. Also we love Luciano's dog Cleo, she was the best part of it all. Hope to come back soon!
