    Description

    We are a warm and welcoming hostel & cafe located in a safe and colourful part of Medellin, Colombia. The country is going through a period of rapid transformation and was ranked number 2/52 places to visit in 2018 by the New York Times!

    Across our 3 floors you will find eclectic design, comfortable accommodation, a European-style café, spacious chillout areas, a rooftop bar and weekly events bringing together local Colombians and foreigners in Medellin. Our language exchange events are very popular. We recently introduced rooftop yoga and salsa dancing nights which we would love for you to be a part of! We are offer a good mix of fun things to do and time to chillout and relax. We are located 5 minutes from a modern metro system for easy access to other city attractions.

    We are looking for a range of volunteers to help with projects as we take this place to the next level. Previous volunteers have said how quickly they felt part of the family (we have 8 staff and 2 kittens!).
