We are a small, youth, sustainable hostel, where everybody feels welcome. Our interest is a sustainable way of work (we have a sustainability certification from the Chilean government for our efforts for less energy consumption, recycling, and respect for the workers and the community). The hostel was founded by two college mates who like to travel, and now it´s mostly run by a young international staff. Currently, they are from Haiti, Ecuador, Chile, and France working here in a really friendly atmosphere. Sustainability, understanding, and no discrimination are part of our most important values.
Because the breakfast and dinner are included in the accommodation for our guests (and also travellers part of the staff) in the hostel normally everybody gets to know each other during the dinner time, and that gives our place a really friendly vibe. Also, we arrange weekly activities for the guests, guided by the staff, to make the stay even more social. Nobody will be bored here.

The travellers will share with a multicultural staff, work in a very good athmosphere, learn about the culture of Chileans, the places of Santiago (we are located in the safest and best neighborhood for tourism in Santiago surrounded by places to visit and the best nightlife spots). Also, our staff work in Spanish but some of them know English and French language.
We need help with the traveller´s entertainment ( guide to the near places), cleaning the house, helping in our reception, the maintenance of the building and, as a sustainable hostel, we need to keep working the recycling and the information about the energy consumption and CO2 saved. (Not everything from the same person, and we prefer single volunteers). Very important: We only accept foreign travellers for voluntary work. Chilean people who want to work with us must to apply for a regular job.
spanish (native) and english (medium level)
We offer accomodation in a mixed dorm with breakfast and dinner everyday (including a BBQ every Friday).
In the time off we can arrange accomodation for free in hostels in Valparaiso and Pucon. Also, we need the traveller to visit some of the most important places where we send our guests on tours.
We are a youth hostel, so the vibe here for our staff is about young people learning languages, traveling, doing activities and going out like friends.
We cannot accept chilean people to do voluntary work. Chileans must to apply to a regular job if they want to be part of our staff.
