We are chilean-czech couple running a small but busy hostel in Puerto Natales - city which most of the travelers visit to enter the famous Torres del Paine National Park, and experience the authentic patagonian life in the southern Chile. The season here starts in October and last through all the Patagonia spring and summer, which is the busiest time for us. As we run the hostel by ourselves, together with our recepionist, we need some help at the reception and with some light work in the house. We can accept one person, or a couple, ideally for longer than two weeks as the work requires some time to learn. Also we would be happy to accept some long term volunteers (more than one month) or a standard receptionist with an option to be officially employed. If you feel you might be the right person for us please don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
You will be able to practice your Spanish, visit the beautiful mountains in and around the Torres del Paine National Park, and experience the genuine Patagonian culture. You will have also opportunity to learn about hostel and travel agency management, and meet lots of travelers from all over the world.
What we need the most is help at the reception with international guests, so fluent English and pro–customer approach is a must, and some help with house work, such keeping the common spaces in the house clean during the day, and time to time helping with changing the beds in the dorms. In exchange you will get hostel breakfast, and comfortable and newly renovated house at your disposal. We will be happy to show you around Puerto Natales, lend you a bicycle, or organize a tour to National Park and other interesting places with a staff discount.
Spanish, English, Czech
We can offer you a comfortable bed in the shared bedroom, or a place in our garden for your tent, in case you would like to be more disconnected from the hostel in your free time. You can use all the common spaces in the house, equipped kitchen, and the living room with TV and Netflix.
the volunteer will have hostel breakfast every day
Puerto Natales is a small and quiet city, but there is plenty to see and to do! The main attraction is the Torres del Paine National Park, however, there are many beautiful places around to visit, mostly if you're a mountain lover who likes trekking or cycling. Other popular activities are kayak in the fiord or lakes around, horsback riding or rock climbing.
