We have a great experience in Aji Verde! The staff was nice and explained the rules and how to do volunter job as well, they were and also were nice to give us advice about what to do and where to go in San pedro! Felipe the owner is a really nice person! I would recomend to stay about 10/20 days, with shifts you will have lots of free time to enjoy and visit San Pedro area even with the hosts of the Hostel! The work is not diffucult at all, only is better to know some basic english and spanish as you can talk with hosts and staff!

It was a nice stay and the staff was always helping. I really felt like a part. But I wouldn't recommend to stay a long time, San Pedro just isn't big enough. That doesn't mean it was boring, but you get to know the town and area around it pretty quick, also because the permanent staff is doing a great job.

I had an an amazing stay in the Hostel of Felipe. Volunteering at this beautiful hostel with the big garden I can really recommend.
The task I had was really easy and it was explained to you before what to do exactly. Besides I had a lot of free time to explore the city and the surroundings alone or with another volunteers.
Thank you for staying, have a great time and make new friends.

I loved my stay. The hostal is beautiful with lots of green area and a zen vibe. The staff are like family, we eat together and share everything. The tasks are simple and as expected for a large hostal. I am felling so good in the hostal that I'm planning to stay here for more time. Love and Light

The experience was very good, we were able to see a lot of things in atacama.
Gi was flexible with the shifts and they were all very nice people. Plus we got to know a lot of the hostel guests. I super recommend this place to do volunteering!!
