  • Description


    I'm mechanical engineer and the owner of this hostel, located in Piura, northern Peru. I'm a traveler and i love meet people and learn about different cultures.

    We are looking for friendly and fun volunteers to help in: reception, cleaning, construction, landscaping or ecological projects for the hostel. We're located in a great area of the city because everything is near us: Supermarket, Restaurants, ATM, Malls, all the major bus stations for your continued travel to everywhere and anywhere. There's also a huge open market about a 5-minute walk from our hostel where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables. It's a fun adventure walking through the different areas of this market, and everything is really cheap.

    If you want to feel like a local and learn more about other cultures and languages and take a rest after your trip this is your place.

    From Piura Main city it's easy to go to all of Northern Peru's beaches, just walk from the Hostel to the bus stop and within about 45 minutes, you're at the closest beach. 💚🌵 In your free time you can enjoy a relaxing visit next to the river in AQUALUNA or you can help us with our charity in a Children's House (5 minutes walking from the Hostel). Discover all the beaches that Piura has to offer, or go to the mountains in Piura or discover all the towns that we have in the Northern Peru.

    For us, our volunteers are the heart of the Hostel. Without volunteers the heart does not beat. Guys, you are always part of our family.

    I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and I have work experience as a carpenter and electrician. I enjoy working in groups and with my hands. I took Spanish classes for 4 years, but my Spanish is moderate at best.
    I am not afraid of hard physical work and I enjoy socializing.
