A experiência no Santiago Backpackers foi muito boa! O hostel é muito bem localizado e é um lugar muito bonito e aconchegante, com isso muito procurado, recebendo muitos viajantes, de todas as partes do mundo. A a experiência vivida lá me propiciou conhecer muitas pessoas com culturas e conhecimentos diferentes.
A equipe que compõe o staff é muito acolhedora e disponível para colaborar. Ari e Catha, que dirigem o local, são sérios em seu trabalho e flexíveis para buscar a melhor solução aos voluntários. Foi uma grande experiência e indico a qualquer um que queira conhecer Santiago. :D

Is was my first time traveling and using Worldpackers. The travel itself was amazing! The people who works in the hostel was great, but the host confuses volunteers and employees. I loved the experience, but not because of him, unfortunately. I wouldn't recommend people to be a volunteer in this hostel. It made me feel stressed and disappointed.

Hi, I'm the host. I wish Andrea would have told me this personally and at the beggining of her stay, we saw each other every day. We host a lot of people and most leave very happy with their experience. I always have interviews and explain the jobs the volunteers will have, no surprises. In her case, the job was to organize parties/get-togethers and to serve breakfast. I have very clear the difference of a volunteer and a worker, but we are strict on volunteers being punctual and taking their duties seriously. In these aspects, there are no differences between workers or volunteers.
Still, this is a good opportunity to improve our recruiting and be very clear to future worldpackers about our expectations

Ari, the owner and all the guys in the staff, including the volunteers was really amazing... the hostel localization is perfect to you stay in Santiago. I stayed for few days, but I've learned thinly that I'll use for my whole life.

About the host

We have 50 beds which means there's always a nice person to meet and make new friends. We are located in Bellas Artes, a trendy neighborhood in downtown with great connectivity. We receive a lot of messages and usually fill positions quickly, try searching for more than a month ahead!
