    Description

    Our popular hostel has been relocated and we are excitingly rebuilding a new premises in a great location- Cerro Yungay , Valparaiso. We are in the final stages and need energetic and enthusiastic people for hostel staff, and some painting and general construction clean up.

    We need lively enthusiastic friendly staff to mingle with the guests and create a great warm vibe whilst doing your duties. We all speak Englush, however basic and conversational Spanish is needed as half our guests are Latinos and Chileans. Computing and web develpment skills is a super plus!!

    Any artists or people with trade skills are a bonus as we also need to get some creative tasks happening interior and exterior of our new building, and tie up some final bits and pieces with the construction.

    The Workaway role would ideally be minimum 3 weeks or we would welcome longer term stays with really awesome staff.

    We offer accommodation , food week wage and breakfast in exchange for 25 hours a week help!
