  • Description


    We are a fun, lively and social hostel in the heart of the desert in San Pedro de Atacama. At our hostel we have the added benefit of being located a short walk from the city centre itself, which gives us more space, independence and of course the incredible desert views that only a location like ours can offer.

    We have a team of fun and energetic staff, and a constant flow of adventurous and lively guests, giving our hostel the best atmosphere in town.

    We are looking for social and fun people to help us run our desert oasis! We run a variety of lively social events in the hostel, including regular barbecues, and need social and friendly volunteers to help with guests whenever needed.

    We have a wide range of work that needs doing, including general housework, cleaning, making up the rooms, reception work, cooking, and maintenance and building work as well as we are still a relatively new hostel with plenty of project ideas. Regardless of your role around the hostel, a friendly, social and lively attitude towards guests is essential.

    Volunteers stay in a staff-only bedroom consisting of 6 volunteers in total. In return for their work, volunteers will be given free accommodation, with all meals included, and the opportunity to access tours at a discounted price.
    If you are a hardworking but social person looking for a seriously fun time surrounded by a close knit group of amazing people, then this is the place for you!

    What else ...

    San Pedro de Atacama is bursting with incredible sights and activities, with a huge variety of geological phenomena, salt flats, and generally beautiful scenery on offer to be visited. Volunteers can get discounted access to tours offered from the hostel!

    Although we are a very social hostel always bustling with fun travellers, we do expect volunteers to prioritise their assigned work and pull their weight to complete all their tasks, and distribute them evenly amongst all staff.
