    Description

    Looking for volunteers


    --- Stay at least 3 weeks with us ---

    Our hostel is a recent entrepreneurship project that has been carried out with my partner. We are 2 boys in our thirties and together we have travelled for about 8 years to different places and we always had in mind the idea of ​​establishing a project like this, until last year we decided to explore this opportunity in the city of Santa Marta, in the state of Magdalena in Colombia, which changed our lives 6 months ago when we moved away from the big city and decided to settle in this little piece of paradise in the Colombian Caribbean. It should be noted that Santa Marta is the oldest city in Latin America and therefore of Colombia.

    Our Hostel is an old house from 1938 and is currently open to the public (1 year ago), however, the project still progresses step by step, since we have 3 floors, 2 rooms and common areas and a terrace with pool, beautiful views of the city and solarium.

    This is the first Pet Friendly hostel in the city, it also tries to be more eco-friendly possible and we are also Gay Friendly.

    We prefer Volunteers who are at least 25 years old from Europe or USA fluent in Spanish (Singles or Couples), and for your knowledge, it is prohibited to consume weed.



    --------

    Nuestro hostel es un proyecto de emprendimiento reciente que ha realizado junto con mi pareja. Somos 2 chicos de treinta y tantos años y que juntos durante unos 8 años hemos viajado a diferentes lugares y siempre teníamos en mente la idea de establecer un proyecto como este, hasta que el año pasado decidimos explorar esta oportunidad en la ciudad de Santa Marta, En el estado del Magdalena en Colombia, lo cual cambió nuestras vidas hace 6 meses cuando noss alejamos de la gran ciudad y decidimos radicarnos en este pedacito de paraíso del Caribe colombiano. Cabe destacar que Santa Marta es la ciudad más antigua de América latina y por ende de Colombia.

    Nuestro Hostel se establece en una casa antigua que data de 1937 y actualmente está abierto al público, sin embargo, el proyecto aún sigue avanzando paso a paso, ya que contamos con 3 pisos, 2 de habitaciones y áreas comunes y una terraza con hermosas vistas de la ciudad, piscina y solarium.

    Es el primer hostal Pet friendly de la ciudad, también intenta ser más ecoamigables posibles y también somos Gay Friendly.

    Preferimos Voluntarios con 25 años o más de Europa o EE.UU. con fluidez en español, solteros o parejas y para su conocimiento, aquí está prohibido consumir hierba.
