  • Description


    We're a boutique hostel. Relaxed, clean, modern yet we're in a colonial home from 1725, we have a bar and restaurant. Located at the heart of the Historical Center of Santa Marta, this is where the action takes place. We'd love to have pure breed entertainers and experience leaders. Team members, who are both laid back and proactive, and with a smile to offer the world.

    We're currently working on three social projects to involve tourists in different activities that we describe in detail below

  • Help


    We need experience leaders to help in our entertaining activities everyday such as movie night, dance lessons, karaoke, tinder night, live music events.

    Also, we're looking for people that care about vulnerable humans, to get locals and visitors involved in our social projects:

    1. musical (dance and folk) activities with underage vulnerable kids from our city, who are escaping prostitution and drugs through dancing.
    2. Also, we want to develop a social project to help grow income of a social foundation that educates kids with special needs. Our idea is to set up an auction event in our hostel as a gallery, inviting wealthy citizens of santa marta to bid for all the kids art work.
    3. Our final undergoing project is to team up with a diving school, and a nursing home for seniors in vulnerable conditions, to get the tourists to dive and catch all the lion fish they can (lion fish is a devastating species that is thriving in the caribbean waters as it has no natural predators), and once a month we'll have volunteers to cook it and serve for the seniors at the nursing home. PADI is already an sponsor. So if you're cool, easygoing, an awesome entertainer and care for the environment and people, you'll want to come! Cheers!
