Im on my thirties and I love travelling and meet new people,I have been working in the Hospitality Industry in HK and Chile. Also working in Cruise Ships for several years. Currently I developed a new project in Valdivia, Hostel & Restobar ,to gather foreign people with locals, all in one place to share experiences and a good time.
The Hostel is pretty small, we have about 23 beds, so volunteers will have a great chance to meet other travelers and have a great time. The Hostel it is located In a real "Casa Sureña" made of wood where the fire has to get started when is too cold and it is beautiful decorated inside, very artistic and colorful.

The hostel Restobar is located in Valdivia. Valdivia is a small river town in southern Chile that is surrounded by green hills and is close to the ocean. The city is home to three universities, this makes it a great option for somebody who is searching for a balance between a peaceful remote location and a lively community. The Valdivian climate is similar to that of New Zealand and the state of Washington: dry hot summers and mild rainy winters. The city is green and walkable, with many parks and recreational zones. It's not far from lakes, mountains, national nature reserves, and the ocean. We are located 5 minutes from downtown of the city, coffee shops, bars, restaurants and all the night life.
