The Experience

Hey! It's Matias and Luciano, we have a very nice and small hostel with a bar in the heart of Mendoza, next to attractions in a super nice and friendly neighborhood. The tasks are really simple: helping with breakfast, making beds, be at front desk doing check ins and outs, and keeping the house clean and organized - and mainly sharing with other travellers like you! Our goal is to have happy guests and volunteers enjoying their stay with us! :)

Matias is a great guy who helped us every time we need it. We met a lot of cool people and staying at the volunteers house was a great experience. Also we love Luciano's dog Cleo, she was the best part of it all. Hope to come back soon!

It was a amazing experience. Was my first time travelling alone and the way that I was recepted and the assistance gave to me to learning my tasks was very important. Matias is a very good person, muy buena onda jajaja, and helped me a lot since since the first contact.
I recommend this hostel to volunteering if you wanna learning not only spanish, but english too and I hope you meet amazing people as I met in my experience.

Seria impossível falar mal do Koala. Eu estoy feliz até ahora por ter passado por lá e conhecido tanta gente incrível.

Matías e Rocio... Obrigada por tanta paciência e ajuda com as tarefas, vocês são incríveis. Agradeçam também ao Dalfo (acho que esse é o nome kkkk) um buena onda, trabalhador que adorei conhecer.

Agradeço também aos outros voluntários como Léo, Matí, Flor e Tom que me ajudaram e fizeram dessa experiência ainda mais rica.

Voltarei... com certeza. Principalmente porque quero comer o assado! jajajaja

Gracias por todo amigos!

Mi experiencia en Koala hostel fue excelente, hice muchos amigos y aprendi mas sobre la administracion de un hostel, las tareas son simples y los horarios flexibles y el hostel tiene muy buena ubicacion. Mi estadia en ciudad de Mendoza fue muy buena pude conocer mas bodegas, las montañas y los pueblos de la provincia de Mendoza.
