    I am a California surfer that opened a small boutique hostel in Santiago, Chile in 2012. With a focus on the outdoors and adventure travel, we regularly receive young backpackers and students that want to surf, ski, trek and tour Chile.

    Sadly, we are closing (owner is relocating to the beach) at the end of October. BUT..... I’m still seeking volunteers for our last weeks to help out with a few small "fixer-up” tasks as I prepare to hand the keys back to the original owners on October 25th - and also to maintain some life in the house. The hostel dog is lonely :(

    This will be the easiest volunteer position you’ll ever have, only requiring around 10-15 hours a week or a few hours a day if you stay less than that. There will still be social events in and nearby the hostel: patio bbqs, pub crawls, potluck dinners, discount drink nights, etc... We are in a safe and central neighborhood full of young students. Bella Vista, downtown Providencia, el centro, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and metro stops are all just a short walk away.

    I seek proactive volunteers that are full of enthusiasm - reliable and problem solvers. We’re planning to have A LOT OF FUN in our last weeks. Join us!

    Please include a short description, arrival date, and around how long you would like to help us.

    Spanish is not required but it would help your chances :)

    p.s. So sorry if I don´t respond to your message right away. We´ve been receiving many emails and you´re all so good its hard for me to choose. We´ve also had some workawayers sign up months ahead then unexpectedly cancel so I´ll be more likely to respond if you want to work within 2 months or less of your inquiry. Email me anyways though. I read every single one and file them away for the future.
