    Description

    Hello Workawayers,
    my name is Nina and I am running a small, just-women hostel in Lobitos. I have lived here for 15 years and hence I know all nice places, surfing spots and the people in town and everything you need to know to have a wonderful and relaxed time here in this small surfer village.
    The hostel is located in an historic, wooden, "southern states-style" house, with a nice veranda and 3 min walking distance from the Pacific. There is plenty of space for chilling&relaxing, doing yoga and accommodating to the easy&tranquillo lifestyle here. Also a dog and and cat live here. This experience is perfect for anyone who loves to surf, wants to relax and have the option to get in touch with the locals here in Lobitos.

    I am looking for help all around the hostel. This involves the usual hostal stuff, like cleaning up, helping guests etc. Apart from that, my vision is to convert this house into an even more beautiful place and guest house to accommodate surfer girls and other kinds of travelers from all over the world, as cultural exchange between kind people is my passion and makes me happy. Since this protected cultural property house is fairly historic, there is always the need for maintaining and fixing things at the place. Anyone with experience in graphics & design artists, design apps, photography... or just a good sense of DIY is welcome. At the same time there is also much room for shaping this place with your creativity, meaning painting or art work. So if you have a good sense for improving a place for more vibe with some creativity, your more than welcomed.

    As you see, I'm looking for different kinds of volunteers, with their heart at the right place and who are willing to contribute about 4 hours of work a day, 5 days a week in exchange for a bed in a shared room. Volunteers can use the well equipped kitchen and we can share recipes from our countries if you like!

    I am still learning English and I am not fluent yet, that's why I need you to have a basic level of Spanish, but I love to receive friends from all over the world and will make also an effort to communicate and learn. Please write me back better in Spanish :)

    I am looking forward to welcome you here in Lobitos :-)

    Please keep in mind this is my home and I like to keep a peaceful, family environment. Also be aware that there are not many stores in Lobitos, only some small local stores. Somtimes a fruit-vegetable car will pass. In Talara is a big supermarket so I advice you to takesome groceries from there.
