    Description

    Hi Workawayers, we are a hostel that more than a hostel its "A home away from home", we are three friends who after traveling for a while, realice of the need to have a place where travelers visiting our city, Cali, could feel part of a family of friends living and working in their own house in order to provide a real local experience, now we are looking forward to have someone working with us covering one shift that will change every week.

    Working here its actually really cool, its pretty much a dream job, because its all about interact and chill with other travelers, and the area where we are its super central so you will have everything around to also experience the city in the best way, we have two of the most important salsa clubs just two blocks from us, one with the best salsa live music and the second one, is one of the best places to dance salsa.

    We also have many salsa academies nearby so you can improve your own skills of dancing, a few blocks from the historical center and to most of the museums. I mean, everything its walk-able around this area, we are also in the Colonial neighborhood of Cali in a Colonial super fresh house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can culturally benefit by sharing with us our experiences of the day by day in the hostel, we are a mixture of very interesting people, who have the best energy to interact with people, by dancing, by painting, by cooking, and we can also show you all the free options for cultural activities in town.

    Cali is famous for its art and bohemian life, so there are many restaurants, coffee places and bars with free shows, happy hours and many fun things around, like free yoga classes in outdoors parks, free dances, and many many particular things about Cali that not everyone know not even regular locals so ;) join us, you wont regret it ;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    in your free time in Cali you can do almost everything you can imagine, from learning salsa, to learning how to dance a typical sidewalk indigenous dance (for free every Thursday night), you will find night live every day and different kind from salsa clubs to rock bars to metal bars, you can also find many super cheap library, car races, etc.

    Cali its also known as the sport capital of America, we have also all kind of leagues where you can go ans spend time ether learning or playing, we have one of the best climbing walls, all kind of stadiums: Roller Hockey, Roller Skating, Cycling, Basketball, Volley ball, Soccer. Every Sunday morning are some roads closeed in the city all morning from 7:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. So people can go out and ride their bicycles, their skates, run, walk, or just chill around, all of this if the Saturday night life let you wake up early. We are a city also known for being crossed by seven different rivers that came from the National Natural Park "Farallones de Cali". Wich is the best for outdoors adventures; you can do many explorations in the mountains, visit little towns up in the mountains, the most famous river in the national park its Pance, very easy to get there with many waterfalls, places to swim and to bird-watch.

    Cali its also just 3 hours from the pacific coast, perfect for day trips or for a weekend in the beach, San Cipirano river its on the way... and amazing river to do tubing in the middle of the jungle, if you are lucky maybe you can run into some monkeys. Cali its just amazing, you can find pretty much everything you want... try it, you wont regret, we have many foreign friends who are already living in Cali, because they had discovered the magic of the place, the kindness of the people and the love we have for foreigners.
