  • Description


    The Hostel is located in the heart of the idyllic seaside village of Olón. It's a perfect place for Surfer, Biker and people who like to relax and enjoy the beach. This cozy little hostal offers you a relaxing and quite stay. But if you want a night out, Olón is just a 5 minute taxi-ride away from the buzzing party town Montañita.

    A spacious new kitchen, common room with TV, DVDs, books and magazines, as well as an outdoor area with chairs and tables can be used by the volunteers and build a perfect place to meet other travellers and make new friends.

    . we love to learn about different cultures, languages, and ways of living. We are also interested in food and cooking and love to share recipes, learn new ones, and cook and eat together. Since we are close to the beach we love surfing . Olón also has a beautiful cloud forest which is perfect to go for a hike or horseback riding to explore the hidden waterfalls.

    It would be great if you could give us a hand with general hostel work: make our guests feel at home, giving them advice, dealing with reservations, and some help with maintenance.

    Also if you are creative we will gladly give you some projects to work on, like murals, or decorations for the hostel.
