  • Description


    We are an international hostel and cafe/restaurant in beautiful Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador. We are open all year round and pride ourselves on being a place where staff and guests alike feel as though they are connecting not just with a place, but becoming part of the family. We are located on a quiet street in the heart of Bahia de Caraquez, just a block from Bahia’s best beach. We are also working at these projects:
    -decorate our Hostel, tables, walls etc.
    -create a vertical garden in our patio
    -live music nights
    We are looking for volunteers who would like to join our family throughout the year, in a place where we can share this unique experience!!

    In April 2016, Bahia was hit strongly by a big earthquake and we spent the last year and a half to rebuild our Hostel and make it always more beautiful, funky, and eco-friendly. At the moment we are decorating our restaurant tables and some walls also we are starting a vertical garden in our patio. Basically we're looking for volunteers who want to share their knowledge, teach, learn about building, artistic painting, gardening and above all free their creativity in our place. We also look for musicians for our Live Music Nights.
    Our main hope for volunteers is that they love here as much as we do, creating a fun social environment to make our guests feel at home.
    Our minimum time requirement for volunteers is 2-4 weeks.
