The Experience

El valle de Elqui es un destino místico donde se concentra el 70% de los observatorios astronómicos de Chile! Debido a la pureza de sus cielos, construiremos un nuevo hostel con el mismo estilo y buena onda del que tenemos en La Serena. Lo bueno para ti es que al ser nuestro voluntario en el valle tus días libres también podrás hospedarte en nuestro hostel de La Serena y conocer la playa y el valle de nuestra región. Te esperamos!

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. :)
