The Experience

Our Hostal began in 2016 by its owner Pablo, being the first of several in the south of Chile. Due to his relationship with the town and its surroundings, Pablo decided to build the first hostel in Pucon, and then settle the 2nd somewhere in southern Chile. The name was chosen to protest against the threat of hydroelectric power stations in the local area. We need your help for different tasks around the hostel.

Tive uma curta experiência no hostel, a que não foi das piores mas também longe de ser uma das melhores.




Pucón e uma cidade muito bonita com muitas coisas a se fazer, hostal e organizado tive experiências boas e outras muito ruim, agradeço a yosi e Cleiton pelo carinho.




Río Libre es una hostal realmente hermosa, dónde es válida para pasar un buen momento de voluntariado, tiene muchas áreas entretenidas donde estar desde el techo, el Living viendo Netflix jaja o la terraza mirando el atardecer. las tareas son super sencillas en temporada baja no es demandante el trabajo, sin embargo en temporada alta necesitan mucho voluntarios porque eso se llena. Clayton como Pali super atentos de la estadía de los voluntarios sea buena, además de la flexibilidad para poder conocer otros lugares y demás. Me encantó el voluntariado, sin duda volvería.




Me encantó demasiado Pucón y el Hostal Río Libre, viví experiencias demasiadas buenas como también no tan buenas, pero aprendí mucho y tuve tiempo de conocer lo lindo que es la ciudad, gracias por todo! Ojalá que algún día puedo volver visitar ustedes.




Rio Libre é um lindo hostel, com uma energia super positiva. Eu pude compartir bons momentos aí.
Fiz trabalho de recepção, muito tranquilo e simples. tive tempo de conhecer a cidade é descansar!
