  • Description


    This is a hostel located in Valparaiso, heritage house located in the historic center, consists of three floors and an art cafe in the basement for meetings and parties, hostel with 19 rooms, receives tourists and friends from around the world. Excellent connection with the metro train, taxis, buses and tourist points. Front view to the port of Valparaiso only 300 meters. Our project is to restore the house and turn it into one of the best places to house people from all over the world.
    Our family is composed of four people, two university students, social work students and civil engineering in computer science. We are Lorena and Andres the owners of the Hostal and we welcome them into our lives.

    So, we are recruiting volunteers to help in our hostel. We want to make a good project. We have been working with people from all over the world for a long time. The tasks to be carried out are not complicated, the house is a historical house that we have repaired slowly, because it is very large, we are a family of good living, we like to live life but also to work. We make many social gatherings. We are developing an alternative hostel project, that is why we need people with new ideas, who contribute to the project.

    We need friends who want to work, who like art and culture, We are not demanding, we love to live and the simplicity of life, spend pleasant moments in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The house is working with fixed guests. Tell me the dates they traveled to Valparaiso, we need to scrape doors, paint, fix roofs. etc. The house is old, hippie and there are not many amenities, but the basic thing is.

    Let's be clear, we need people who come for a minimum period of two months.
