    Our Hostel, is 30 mts from the beach, with a Lonely Planet award in sustainable and ecologic option, Trip Advisor Excellence Award 2013 , 2014 and 2015, 2016, 2017,,18,19,20, 21 Traveller´s Choice 2020 and Hall of Fame Trip Advisor 2 times, Eco-green Leaders Awards from Trip Advisor
    small and cozy hostel with only 9 rooms.
    The hostel was built in 2010 when the owner decides to move ( for love to Sweden ) since 2011 , he is back and forth, but before he had a beach house there for 12 years,
    The house was tear down and we reused the 90% of the house, in the hostel construction so the hostel has the house´s genes and the hostel was built as a product of the love =) crazy huh?! =)

    Help

    We require someone who speaks English at an advanced level, 25 hours per week, flexible in the daylight. helping our team we are bilingual ( except Pepe our lovely guard ) in administration, marketing, supporting the team with some guests if there something to communicate in English
    be so extrovertive and so proactive, we want to you really care about our guest

    IF YOU HAVE SKILL IN WORD PRESS or web development would be great but it is not mandatory =)

    We need help in all the task that involves a Backpacker hostel, which means a shift in the morning, midday or afternoon, which will be rotated with other volunteers, every shift has multiple tasks, for instance, the midday shift involves more check out than check-in and also housekeeping rooms, morning and afternoon, more check-in process and less housekeeping on the rooms.
    so every volunteer will cover the different shifts and will learn a bit about what a hostel operation involves, our Administrator will be there for 8 hours daily as support and guidance too and on a busy day ( fully booked the rooms ) we will hire a maid for the cleaning, we want the volunteer are active people, of course in a balance with the intensitive of the work, we expect volunteer always will be aware of what happened in the hostel even in the small details, that they see the place as a home and not a bed in exchange for help in our hostel

    IMPORTANT INFO= please apply ONLY IF YOU ARE ALREADY TRAVELING IN ECUADOR, we also will prioritize those ones who has reference from previous volunteering
    cheers =)
