    Description

    We are Pod style Hostel that opened 2 year ago, we are really excited to work with volunteers, i have worked with volunteers prior in my other hostel jobs and have loved it. We are a hostel with a colorful vibe and atmosphere. We aim to make our guests and volunteers feel at home. Privacy is very important to us so we have created a special space for volunteers. There are 2 rooms one with pods and smaller mattress and one with bunk bed but bigger beds, both rooms accommodate maximum 2 people. As a volunteer you will have your own room (sharing with only one more volunteer) and a shared bathroom, you will work maximum 25 hours per week and have days off together to be able to travel around. We will also provide with free breakfast. We have an awesome backyard and rooftop so that you can enjoy the view of the beautiful city of Quito and Rucu Pichincha Volcano which is right in front of us. There are a lot of cheap restaurants around, and we are only 10 minutes walk from La Mariscal area where you can go out and party with some of our guests. If you like Hospitality this is the place to come to as you will learn a lot and enjoy your work as well. We are flexible with schedules so we can adapt to your needs as much as we can. We have a pool table and ping pong table as well as a beer pong table.

    Help

    You will help with reception (check in-check out) and reservations. Another plus side is that you will practice you spanish while communicating with the rest of the staff here. You will have to check mails and put reservations into the system. In one of our shifts you will also help with changing the bed linen and cleaning.

    When you have nothing to do you can always read a good book, put some nice music, chill with the rest of the guests, play pool or watch a movie. I just need someone to take charge of the reception when I am not around.

    What else ...

    We have been receiving volunteers for more than 2 years and they always leave with a good impression. I have worked with volunteers before and have become close friends with them, still being in contact after they leave and keep on travelling. I will show you guys around the city and tell you the do´s and dont´s of this beautiful city of mine which is Quito. Basically, you will learn from a local whatever you want to learn and i will help you in whatever I can. I studied Hospitality so I am very happy to show you around and help you with any questions you have. I like a lot to go out to the mountains and do trekkings and climb them so if you are an adventurous person I can give you all the tips I know about the mountains around (we have a lot). So dont hesitate and come stay with us and have a real Pod Experience and meet locals.
