    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in the Mapuche's territory, the only native population of South America who's never been defeated.
    You can learn more about their rich and unique culture.

    Pucon is surrounded by lakes, mountains, and Volcanos. It's the perfect place for trekking, skiing, kayak, rafting, hot springs, and much more.
    And if you want to learn Spanish it's a good place to practice!

    Estamos en el territorio de los Mapuches, el único pueblo originario que nunca fue vencido. Puedes aprender más sobre su rica y única cultura y sabiduría.
    Ya que Pucón está rodeado por lagos y volcanes, es el lugar perfecto para hacer trekkings, ski, kayak, rafting, termas y muchas otras actividades.
    Y si quieres aprender el Español, es un buen lugar para practicar.

    Basically, we need someone to provide full reception services to guests, offer tours/excursions, respond to phone calls, keep the place clean. There are always some maintenance projects like making signs, taking care of the garden or playing with Peti that you could help us with as well.

    The atmosphere at the hostel is relaxed and joyful but neat and clean. We receive guests from all over the world.
    You can exchange so many experiences with the guests.

    Our philosophy: "Do what makes you happy and the rest will follow!"


    Básicamente, necesitamos alguien para la recepción, ofrecer tours, responder al teléfono y mantener limpio el lugar. Siempre hay algún proyecto de mantenimiento como hacer señaléticas, cuidar el jardín o jugar con Peti con las que nos podrán ayudar también.

    La atmósfera en el hostel es relajada y alegre pero ordenada y limpia. Recibimos a huéspedes de todo el mundo, con los que podrás compartir.

    Nuestra filosofía: "Haz lo que te hace feliz! El resto llega solo!"
