The Experience

Our Hostal began in 2016 by its owner Pablo, being the first of several in the south of Chile. Due to his relationship with the town and its surroundings, Pablo decided to build the first hostel in Pucon, and then settle the 2nd somewhere in southern Chile. The name was chosen to protest against the threat of hydroelectric power stations in the local area. We need your help for different tasks around the hostel.

Gonza e Pali são ótimos! A cidade é linda e com as horas livres, independente do turno, é possível aproveitar bastante. Além dos dias livres, claro.

El hostal es precioso y el gerente, Gonzalo, buenísima onda. Me he sentido como en casa y además los horarios te permiten hacer otras actividades por el resto del día. Superrecomendable!

Estive por 3 semanas como voluntario neste hostal e foi uma ótima experiencia. Recomendo a todos que queiram acreditar em um projeto de hostal buena onda. O proprietário Pali foi muito atencioso e constantemente levou os voluntarios para diversos passeios. Hasta... Eu voltarei.
