    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The learning possibilities are endless!!! The limit is the desire to learn that each of the volunteers possesses.
    Being located in the neuralgic heart of the city of Antigua, the cultural tributary that we will have will be immensely cosmopolitan therefore. The cultural exchange will occur through the relationships that are had both with the guests and through the combined environment of a city like Antigua and the exacerbation of an endless number of languages and customs,
    =================
    Las posibilidades de aprendizaje son infinitas!!! El limite son las ganas de querer aprender que cada uno de los voluntarios posea.
    Al estar ubicados en el corazón neurálgico de la ciudad de Antigua, el afluente cultural que tendremos será inmensamente cosmopolita por lo cual. el intercambio cultural se dará a través de las relaciones que se tengan tanto con los huéspedes como por el ambiente combinado de una ciudad como Antigua y el exacerbo de un sinfín de lenguas y costumbres,

    We are looking for volunteers with a vocation for service, camaraderie and mutual respect. We do not pigeonhole ourselves into any age range although we know that the majority of people who join as volunteers are, for the most part, young people.
    We also do not make distinctions based on sex or nationality. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the whole experience.
    Of course, we consider it essential that people who wish to volunteer in our space know how to speak both English and Spanish. This is, perhaps, the only exclusive requirement since due to the location of our space we receive a constant influx of people from multiple places in the world, so command of the English language is essential!!
    =================
    Buscamos voluntarios con vocación de servicio, compañerismo y respeto mutuo. No nos encasillamos en ningún rango de edad aunque sabemos que la mayoría de personas que se incorporan como voluntarios son, en su mayoría, jóvenes.
    Tampoco hacemos distinciones por sexo o nacionalidad. Todos son bienvenidos a disfrutar de toda la experiencia.
    Por supuesto, consideramos fundamental que las personas que deseen hacer voluntariado en nuestro espacio sepan hablar tanto inglés como español. Este es, quizás, el único requisito exclusivo ya que por la ubicación de nuestro espacio recibimos una afluencia constante de personas de múltiples lugares del mundo, por lo que el dominio del idioma inglés es imprescindible!!

    For volunteers, the hostel has a shared room with "sailor" beds or bunk beds. The idea of this is to promote camaraderie and improve coexistence relationships between volunteers.
