    My name is Daniel and I am a hostess at the yaras hostel in the Elqui Valley in the IV region of Chile.
    The hostel is an 8-room hostel with capacity for 26 people, located 10 km from the city of Vicuña in the famous Elqui Valley, known for its mysticism, its magic sky and positive energy.

    The hostel now running for 3 years, is a multi-cultural space, any cultural interactions with the guests and locals are always welcome and appreciated. Besides putting our customer service and satisfaction as our number one priority, there are plenty that a volunteer can help with such as:
    *️️️Maintain and improve the 200 sq meters garden area
    *️️️Assisting guests when needed
    *️️️Cleaning the main lobby area and main kitchen
    *️️️Reordering and cleaning the rooms after guests have checked out
    *️️️Painting murals/wall art around the hostel
    *️️️Computer administration and data entry/social media presence

    The list above is to give you an idea of what we might need help with, any suggestions of projects (art work, cooking, photography, video, construction, gardening etc..) are always welcome and appreciated!
