The Experience

Our hostel is the place to be in La Serena. We are a party hostel with music and a great social vibe every day. It is all about sharing time and having fun with fellow travellers. It is the perfect place to learn about each other adventures while enjoying a beer or pisco sour. We can accommodate 6 volunteers at a time. There are different shifts.

COSMO ELQUI WAS LIKE HOME! It was so amazing staying at this hostel and having the opportunity to volunteer and work along amazing people. The vibe of the hostel is amazing and everything you need is right there! I also had the chance to stay at the other hostel - Cosmo elqui valley and my experience was just as amazing. The staff make sure the volunteers are well looked after and happy. would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for somewhere to spend a bit of time off the beaten travellers path. Had so much fun! Will definitely return, and hope to see everyone I met here again. :)
