    We also hold regular events including language exchanges, themed events, pub crawls, movie nights, pool tournaments all of which are well known around Medellin and attract many locals too.

    Help

    We are looking for volunteers that are available to assist organization/running of social events, help at reception and occasionally some basic maintenance work. Volunteers are required to work a maximum of 5 days a week with a guaranteed 2 days free. Shifts are either in the mornings, afternoons or evenings and schedules are varied in order to be fair to all volunteers.

    Breakfast everyday included, laundry one day per week, commision for tours, commission on sales and tips for bar work if we have any big events, free coffee 24 hours and full use of all facilities

    We do get a lot of requests and therefore we do ask for a minimum 4 week stay, we will only be able to accept 3 week stays in unique circumstances.

    Please also only get in touch if you are coming to Medellin within the next 2 weeks, we are unable to schedule positions any further in advance than that.

    Must be able to speak both English and Spanish well, be over 21 years old and previous hostel experience is also preferable. We kindly ask prospective volunteers to be honest about their Spanish level, this is something that can be verified easily and if it is not to a high standard then unfortunately we cannot accept.
