Volunteering at the hostel has been an incredible experience. Huge shout out to Paulina and her amazing staff for being so patient, welcoming, and creating such a great vibe at the hostel. They're like a big family. This was only the second hostel that I've volunteered with and I learned so much and will be much more prepared for my next volunteer experience. Thank you Paulina, Eduardo, Felipe, Axa, Wesley, and Diego!!

My time at the hostel has been amazing and truly satisfying thanks to the whole team of the hostel! A big thanks goes to Paulina, the manager, because she is extremely tolerant and highly respects all volunteers and workers! Everyone loves her and she is the reason the hostel is that great :) Volunteering at the hostel made me truly connect with many international people but especially with many locals that made me discover authentic places in Santiago, a city that offers a lot of cultural activities and events. Hope to be back to the hostel soon for many more drunk nights and crazy stories ;)

Absolutely loved my time at the hostel! The hours were super fair & manageable, and the vibes of the hostel were great! I felt super safe & comfortable throughout my entire stay. The hostel is huge so there's plenty of space to chill, work & socialize. 10/10 would recommend!
