  • Description


    HEY HEY, Buenos Dias!

    We are three ladies from Australia who moved to Pucon, Chile and opened our first dream project.
    Our hostel opened in May of 2018, after an amazing year, we have the opportunity to relocate to a beautiful new space in the heart of Pucon.

    We are looking for multiple motivated volunteers who will work in various departments such as reception, house keeping, our new bar and to help with various DIY projects in the hostel. We are looking for people who are skilled in areas of carpentry, house keeping and have a creative flare that will contribute to the vibe of the hostel. These volunteers will help create the ambiance of the hostel and will be hard working and show initiative.

    All travelers wanting to be part of a fun developing project ARE WELCOME.
    We offer you breakfast every day, a comfy bed in a shared dorm, shared bathroom, communal kitchen, and living space.

    HELP us
    to create a space that feels like a home away from home. Our goal is to grow into a community and local quality hangout place for Pucon. The house we have acquired has boundless potential, and it's up to us and our creative determination to transform it into a magical place for all to share and enjoy!

    Alma Native Hostel was founded by 3 ladies. Nitza - our mother, Stephanie - my older sister and Me - Lauren younger sister. As we are in a new location in a larger space, my parents Nitza and Cesar live at the hostel insuring the space is taken care of.

    Come lend a hand, share your story, we'll share ours, and let's create something good together!

    We look forward to meeting you :D

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located in the center of Pucon, two blocks from la Playa Grande, and three blocks from the main street. Here you can find any type of adventure you're looking for, it is a hiking, extreme sport, and rejuvenating paradise. We are Australian Chilean and you will have the opportunity to meet many locals and learn some Spanish and eat some good traditional Chilean home cooked meals. You will have the opportunity to learn how to create a new hostel business and be part of a team who truly care about creating a space for people to feel at home, safe, and free to be who they truly are. We want your experience here to also be memorable and positive.
    We are always happy to share our story and experience, and past forward any skills we may have that you may like to learn, and of course vice versa.

  • Help


    We would love someone to join us in creating a space they too care about. We're in search of reliable, self-starting, good vibe people, who have the initiative to take on mini projects alone sometimes - or be a positive addition to a team.
    The type of help will vary, every day we have new projects to do, and we will be needing your assistance and flexibility to help us complete them, such as help in gardening, building, painting, DIY projects, administration, fixing and repairing, design, marketing, photography, house keeping, reception work, creative thinking, and more. It's up to you what you get out of each experience.

    We are looking for volunteers who:
    - can commit to a minimum of 2 weeks from December to March.
    - speaks English or Spanish.
    - respectful with sharing the space with the owners and other volunteers.

    On your off time, you can explore this region and we can help you connect with locals and give you all the inside scoop to this place. Discounts on tours too!

    What else ...

    Local buses can get you to all the great hiking spots and on your time off you can do lots of adventure sports, explore and connect with nature, enjoy the town and the cafes and restaurants. In the winter months, you can really enjoy the town properly, from July they open the local ski center, so on your days off or at the end of your shift or before your shift, you can do a half day up on the Volcano. Free yoga classes in town. There's a great women's office where you can do free courses if you sign up on time. There is always something to do, depends on you and what you like to do.
