  • Description


    We are a well-established hostel in Nicaragua which is founded BY BACKPACKERS - FOR BACKPACKERS! The Hostel lays on the shores of the Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua: a volcanic crater lake.

    Volunteers are vital to our organization as they create a fun and welcoming atmosphere for everyone, independent of age, gender, solo or group traveller. We strive our guests to connect to each other and give them the best experience possible. We are on the look-out for friendly and outgoing volunteers who can entertain our guests by hosting variety of daily activities, promoting tours, and chatting with them, create a perfect setting for sharing their experience and making new friends. Once a week, we organize a Trivia Night Fundraiser to support a community project which facilitates high school education for youth of the Laguna de Apoyo.

    This is an excellent opportunity to discover the beauties of Nicaragua, connect with people from all around the globe, and help a great cause!
