The Experience

Hola, viajero! Soy Matias, junto a mi novia Elisa y mi pequeño hijo estamos emprendiendo con un hostal joven y con un punto de vista diferente! Nuestro hostel tiene pocas habitaciones, pero necesitamos ayuda en las tareas domesticas y también en darle vida al hostel! Aceptamos sugerencias de decoración o ayuda para pintar ciertas partes para dejarlo bonito dia a dia. Nos preocupamos mucho de la limpieza y del viajero también :)

El hostel tiene un ambiente excelente. Gracias a Matías y Elisa me sentí como en casa ya que tuvieron una excelente predisposición y confianza para todo, por ejemplo compartir algunos asados.
Las tareas son como en cualquier hostel, y entre 3 voluntarios se hace ameno y tranquilo.
Iquique es una hermosa ciudad y se disfruta aún más aquí.

Chegamos em Iquique para ficar no máximo 15 dias e acabamos ficando quase um mês e meio. Matias e Elisa são pessoas muito amigáveis e muito tranquilos, sem falar de Santino, que é uma criança super risonha e fofa! E tem a Mila também, que é a cachorra mais independente que conheci na vida.
O hostel é pequeno e as tarefas para o mantenimento são fáceis (manter a casa limpa e organizada e ajudar com os novos hospedes).
Não ter nenhuma refeição é a única parte que pensamos que poderiam começar a oferecer.
