Accommodations have been carefully selected by members of our staff in order to guarantee not only the infrastructure but also the services offered
In case that the volunteer's house is fully booked, participants may be placed in other type of accommodation.
If volunteers are not pleased with the assigned accommodation, they may request to change it. We will make every effort to look for another accommodation of the same type and characteristics when there are valid reasons for such a request. Any and all accommodation change request must be made via email or in writing. According to the accommodation availability, the request will be processed within a minimum of 72 hours.
We will not pay for changes in accommodation made on the volunteer's behalf.
Even if the pickup service is not requested, the volunteer must always inform Voluntario Global about the arrival time and date via e-mail or telephone at least 72 h in advance. If the requested information is not provided, we cannot guarantee that someone will be waiting at the accommodation for the volunteer upon arrival.
The accommodation will be charged from 10 AM on the first day requested. The check-in to the assigned accommodation must be made from 8 AM to 7 PM. If the check-in and check-out times are not fulfilled, we will charge the corresponding additional days.
If you decide to travel during your stay in Buenos Aires, the nights you spent outside the Volunteer Residence, which you have already booked, will not be reimbursed. So please make any travel arrangements before or after your volunteer placement.
You can arrive earlier or leave after you finish your volunteer program, as long as you have paid for these extra nights.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to assure a pleasant stay, VG has established behavior rules applicable at the accommodation as well as volunteer, apprenticeships or any other VG program. In case of breaking the rules, VG has the right to cancel the program with no refund possibilities.
