Work exchange position available in Valparaiso, Chile


We run a small hostel in the heart of sweet Valparaiso (a dorm room, 4 private rooms, and an awesome patio for chilling). The hostal is located on the corner of "Avenida Ecuador" and "Calle San Juan de Dios" (if you want to google that up) , and are looking for someone to help us with the daily tasks (cleaning, making beds, fixing breakfast in the morning if the guests want it, and that's pretty much it! Maybe buy some groceries if you're up to it as well). The compromise is the same as everywhere. We offer accomodation in the dorm (usually all yours!) and half board (breakfast and lunch), and we provide free internet and laundry service. It would be great if you'd stay at least a month, so we can get to know each other. The last one came for three months and stayed six in the end, and the others before him postponed their flight back home as well to stay a little longer). It's the perfect position if you want to learn or improve your español, since we don't speak much English.

Valparaiso is a lot of fun, lots of pubs and restaurants, lots of handcraft stores and chilean grocery stores. Tons of walking to do in this maze of staircases and alleyways that wind up and down the hills. There are nearby beaches, national parks, and cheap public transportation (metro, buses and "colectivos") to get back home when hammered.:)
