Mi experiencia fue buena, en el hostal y restaurante hay buen equipo de trabajo y personas muy amables. Realicé tareas de meseara principalmente., se respetaron los acuerdos de horarios y tenían flexibilidad. En cuanto a la ciudad, la ubicación del hostal es muy buena, cerca de la playa y lugares de interés. Recomendado.

Mi experiencia en el hostel fue muy agradable, el dueño del hostel Matias muy simpático. dentro de las labores como voluntaria había que realizar actividad de garzona y jugos. el ambiente laboral muy grato, tanto como en el hostel - caja y cocina, sin duda volvería otra vez. muchas gracias a Bill, Coni , Coni jr , Diego y steffi, por enseñarme a realizar las tareas y hacer mi voluntariado más entretenido.

El hostel tiene un ambiente excelente. Gracias a Matías y Elisa me sentí como en casa ya que tuvieron una excelente predisposición y confianza para todo, por ejemplo compartir algunos asados. Las tareas son como en cualquier hostel, y entre 3 voluntarios se hace ameno y tranquilo. Iquique es una hermosa ciudad y se disfruta aún más aquí.

Chegamos em Iquique para ficar no máximo 15 dias e acabamos ficando quase um mês e meio. Matias e Elisa são pessoas muito amigáveis e muito tranquilos, sem falar de Santino, que é uma criança super risonha e fofa! E tem a Mila também, que é a cachorra mais independente que conheci na vida. O hostel é pequeno e as tarefas para o mantenimento são fáceis (manter a casa limpa e organizada e ajudar com os novos hospedes). Não ter nenhuma refeição é a única parte que pensamos que poderiam começar a oferecer.
