  • Description


    Hello Fellow Travelers

    We are a hostel with a restaurant and bar, situated on the beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.
    Located right on the lakeside with clear waters in what's considered Santiago, but we are across the lake from the main town. Here you will find an energetic lively party atmosphere, family like vibes, and a wonderful opportunity to meet people, practice your Spanish and the ability to travel to the unique towns the lake has to offer. Not to mention beautiful views, amazing sunsets and friendly work environment.

    Community work environment is essential to us, we are looking for people who are willing to bring good quality work ethic as well as their zestful dynamic personalities. We want you if you count yourself as someone who takes action, can organize activities, and gets long with all kinds of people. People willing to become part of the family and contribute their time and ideas to helping create a place that is animated and vibrant.

    We need to highlight that this is a lively and somewhat party hotel, we have only recently opened this Santiago property, and need volunteers, service industry experience is a plus, because we are new we have on going projects so any other skills are welcome. Please reach out to us even if you have no experience but learn quickly, have the right attitude, and work ethic.
