We are a couple running a family hostal in the cerro Alegre in Valparaiso. Our hostal is very pretty with a fantastic view on the valparaiso bay. What's more we are located in the cerro Alegre, the historical heart of the city.
Our hostal has a total of 6 rooms for rent to turists, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a very large garden with a view better than the city's famous miradores.
We receive all kind of people from all over the world, of all ages and all profesions.
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
The volunteer's work will be mostly to take care of the hostal during the evening shifts, this means taking care of the guests and keeping the house clean. It will be possible to change the evening shifts for another shift every now and then if necesary.
Take care of the guests: Guests usually arrive between 2 and 6 but of course some people arrive later and the volunteer will have to take care of them, explain them what to do in Valparaiso, what to see, where to eat, have a drink, where not to go....
Keeping the house clean: Usually cleaning of the house takes place during the morning and afternoon but it is necesary to keep an eye open all the time if it some cleaning is required especially in places like the kitchen and the bathrooms.
It should be a pleasant experience, usually people come back in the late afternoon or evening and it is easy to talk with them. It is not uncommon to share a glass of wine or a beer with them but without forgetting that you are in charge of the house during these hours.
