My stay in Achalay is such a memorable experience! Everything described on the worldpackers page was followed and provided. The owners are very hospitable and I as volunteer had a lot of free time to explore the city and its surroundings. I enjoyed learning about the hostels work, share meals, prepare food for breakfast and socialize with the guests. The hostel is in the center and has everything you need. If you go to Bariloche, only Achalay!
Mas que un Hostel, Achalay ha sido un hogar. Es atendido por sus propios dueños, aprendí a hacer pan casero, mermeladas y mucho mas! El trabajo está bien distribuido y el staff ha sido muy bueno y todos siempre dispuestos a ayudar. En cuanto a la ubicación, queda cerca del centro y de las paradas de autobuses y tiene buenos bares cerca también! Gracias Pablo y Flor por todo y por ser mi familia en este tiempito :)
Mi primera experiencia como trabajo en un Hostel y fue excelente!!! Pablo y su familia me hicieron sentir como en casa, realizando tareas de recepcion, aprender a preparar las mermeladas, el pan para el desayuno, entre otras tareas de los turnos. Con el staff preparamos nuestras comidas en conjunto, también organizamos salidas con huésped a la montaña, asados y noches de pizzas...Fue genial compartir todo esos momentos y crear grandes amistades durante todo el tiempo que transcurrió...Muchísimas gracias por todo Achalay y les deseo lo mejor!!!
At first I was a little nervous cause it was going to be my first experience volunteering in a hostel and it exceeded my expectations. Pablo the owner and his wife treated me like family, they made feel like home. I was taught everything I needed to know about reception, I learned how to make the bread and jams for breakfast cause the goal of this hostel is to make feel the guests like home. Pablo gave me and my coworkers the trust to run his hostel during our shifts and I discovered my passion about cooking. I've made friends that will last forever. So THANKS PABLO.
Being a volunteer in Achalay is honestly a great experience! I´m staying longer than my plan due to the nice enviroment, the people and the place itself.
Pablo and Florencia really make us feel like part of this home that Achalay is.
As a volunteer I´m working as the ad said, 32 hours a week in the recepcionist, welcoming the guest, preparing bread for breakfast, making sure everything in the hostel is working propertly, and of course, having fun!! Sometimes we prepare dinners for guest and staff, we cook together, share some asado and participate in tours. Its GREAT!
It's is a family run, cosy, friendly hostel with a cool atmosphere located in the heart of downtown Bariloche. Our hostel is a place where you arrive as voluntier and leave as friend...About the host
