  • Description


    We are a hostel located in the middle of Ecuador, which makes Baños a meeting point for travelers from around the world. The town has many activities and places to offer, like trekking, cannoning, zip lining, hot springs and more, as well as a chill and safe vibe that makes everyone feel like home.
    The concept of the hostel is to create an atmosphere to make everyone feel like home away from home, creating spaces to meet new people and share different experiences either inside of the hostel or outside of it.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers will be related to people from all over the world and will be part of the social and gastronomic culture offered by Baños de Agua Santa. Besides this, it is a good opportunity to practice and improve their Spanish or any other foreign language, while learning about the management process of a hostel and create connections with other volunteers, staff and guests but the most important thing: while they create their own stories and memories of their travels in Ecuador.

  • Help


    The help needed is quite simple and it is divided in 2 main activities: Help us work at reception helping us with the check ins/ check outs (Night option, as a special shift), giving guests all the information needed, always having a smile on your face, cleaning of rooms, common areas and bathrooms.
    For both of the options we need people that speak English and a basic Spanish (at least), this would make so much easier to communicate with the team and the guests.
    We always ask to the volunteers to stay at least 2 weeks, while they learn and practice all the process from the hostel, but everyone is always welcome to stay longer and enjoy all the things that Baños offers if they want it!
