I had such a great time in the Elqui Valley. My best Worldpackers Experience so far. The work is relaxed and the hours well organized. No matter if you are on or shift or not your are always treated like a guest. It's taken good care of the volunteers I felt like part of a family. I highly recommend this place foe volunteering.
Muchas gracias por todo 🤗

What an experience! The Hostel has a cool vibe to it and the volunteers really are the heart of the hostel. I meet some amazing people during my stay. Staff is nice, have to give a huge shout out to Agustina, she is simply AMAZING! Task and shifts are pretty simple and easy to complete. Sometimes things get crazy but that's hostel life. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that laundry wasn't included, we had to pay for it which I found a bit unfair. Breakfast was simple. Wifi works great, would definitely recommend for anyone!

The experience was definitely nice and positive. The hostel is comfy and the staff was helpful and nice in every matter. A nice feat is that You can also visit for free their other hostel that is in the Elqui Valley. There are 5 tasks to do in the hostel and they are divided between the volunteers I just wish I could have tried all 5 of them, not just 2-3.

My experience was great. I was very well received by all Hostel staff, especially by Talita and Lucio. Outside of your working hours you are treated like any customer. The rest of the volunteers were also super high spirits. To be perfect they could pay more attention to the maintenance of the bicycles that are made available to the volunteers. On your vacation you can stay at the hostel in the Elqui Valley, which in itself is a great opportunity. Anyway, I strongly recommend it to the whole community.
