  • Description

    Description

    We are a brand new hostel in Leon, Nicaragua. Our hostel was established in June 2019. Our vision was to create a mix between a social/party hostel with an onsite "hole in the wall" style restaurant so that our guests and customers truly feel welcome.

    Our hostel provides a laidback atmosphere with a garden, hammocks, game room and on site bar. We have both private rooms and dormitories as well as a designated room for our volunteers with their own shared bathroom and shower. Our vibe is chill for most of the week with occasional party nights usually events such as game night tournaments and live guest DJs. Otherwise, we host weekly activities (work in process) and do welcome fresh unique ideas! Our staff is bilingual in English/Spanish, super friendly and are all committed to making our guests feel at home!

    We are centrally located in Leon, walking distance to many restaurants and bars as well as Leons night life, Zona Rosa. We work in tangem with other local business in Leon such as tour agencies and nightclubs in order to better accommodate our guests different needs. Such accommodations include volcano boarding, city tours, camping and our very popular Sunset tour, where guests aboard a bus crawl to different locations all while having a blast!

    Lastly, but most importantly, what we are really looking for in our future volunteers (guests) is your charasmatic unique personalities to help our hostel shine and move forward to the next level!

    Our staff is bilingual in English and Spanish mostly from Leon, Nicaragua therefore very much familiar with the culture, people and generalities of the town. Firstly, we will give you your very own tour of our hostel which will include our in house daily routines, our weekly activities, and any other information required. Second, we will introduce you to the people and agencies we work with to better help you understand who we are and what our vision entails. Lastly, during your days off, our staff will explore with you even further all the culture of Leon such as popular attractions as the Cathedral of Leon, local museums, city markets, and beaches.

    As mentioned before, we are a brand new Hostel and our goal is to host daily activities such as walking tours of Leon or game night with games such as Jenga or Bingo. What we’d like is for our volunteers to help us coordinate them then lead them for our guests. Because our activities are still in working progress we do welcome fresh ideas.

    We are also looking for those who have have already travelled to Nicaragua as We feel that experience will benefit our walking tours. If not, Our staff will happily give our volunteers a Leon tour prior to leading our guests so no Worries.

    Daily maintenance of our hostel is also expected of our volunteers. Things such as: light garden work, dusting, sweeping, re-stocking, and some shopping.

    We also love to repair and/or create useful items for our hostel by DIY ideas, so that too is always welcomed & encouraged.

    Lastly, any experience with emceeing and/or hosting parties, gatherings, or any other type of event, we would like our volunteers to participate with us during ours. Examples are: Game night tournaments and our popular Sunset Tour/Bus Crawl.

    Most importantly we are looking for vibrant and energetic volunteers. Many times our activities have to be moved around in order to be respectful of other local hostels and their events. So spontaneity is another much appreciated quality.
