We are one of the best hostels in Ecuador, located close to the Cotopaxi National Park and surrounded by 8 different volcanoes. It’s a great place to stay and volunteer if you love nature, hikes and cool projects. Here we offer many activities to our guests and volunteers including hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.

Helping with Tourists
The volunteers have a variety of roles around the hostel, working together as a team to provide a unique experience for our guests. The help includes maintaining a high standard of service as well as participating in projects and maintenance around the hostel. We have a well organized group of Ecuadorian staff in charge of cooking and cleaning.. The staff speak Spanish so its also a great way to improve your own spanish as well.
The other part of the volunteer role involves leading two hikes which we offer to guests each day. The hikes are through a private ecological reserve in the mountains. Typically each volunteer leads a few hikes per week, so we are looking for people who are into trekking and hiking and work well in group environments. Minimum stay 4 weeks.
The team of volunteers help our staff from the local community, so volunteering here is an amazing opportunity to meet local people and improve your Spanish level.
Shared rooms with 3 other volunteers. Delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, tea and coffee are all included. Volunteers also get discounted stays at our Quito hostel. Plus special price for Cotopaxi summit
