    Guatape and it's surrounding areas have a lovely character and vibe. The town centre is wonderfully colourful and the people are very lovely. There is quite a lot to learn about this area and it's interesting history, as well as that you can always get to know the locals and learn about a different culture. Through volunteering at the hostel you also have the wonderful opportunity to meet fellow travellers and make lasting friendships. Guatape has some of the most beautiful natural scenery and there is endless chances to explore the area.

In relation to volunteering, we are looking for travelers who wants to help with ideas for the hostel, hosting guests, cooking, living together for a while and helping us to keep this magical place in a wonderful place, also if you have a
    profile on social media and can help us make publicity of the hostel up photos, telling their experience in the hostel and the surroundings. Helps in the networks social would be great, sharing photos, videos and information of the hostel.
    One of the most important aspects for volunteering with us is to speak Spanish, because we need a lot of support for Mrs. Leticia (our cleaning lady).
    Also help with the orden and the cleaning of the kitchen, collaborate with the breakfast, recycle garbage by what each day separate them waste, keep them baths clean, out of shopping to the city, help to organize and create ideas with us, and of course be part of the house, helping as much as you can!
