  • Description


    Dear friends,

    We are running a beautiful hostel with the best best sea view in town. It's the perfect place for sea lovers, intrepid and adventurous surfers and backpackers who want to have a good work experience while enjoying surfing and beach life.

    The hostel is a modern place, with four floors hosting over 40 guests. The rooftop terrace has an unbeatable view to the ocean, especially at sunset. It's the best place in town to have a delicious cocktail and eat a home made BBQ burger with live music. We also offer a game area with pool and a ping pong table, yoga mats and lessons, salsa classes and other activities and events.

    Our international core team consists of seven paid employees in administration, maintenance, cleaning, bar and restaurant.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have an intercultural team with many languages spoken. We expect our volunteers to know either English or Spanish, the rest they can learn! In our various cultural activities (live music, thematic nights, cooking classes dinners, excursions) the travelers have a change to get to learn about Latin America and exchange experiences with travelers from all around the world. Once a week we organize a language exchange event where anyone who's interested can join and practice the language and learn about the culture of other participiants. On daily basis the hostel offers a lot of cozy common area for both the guests and the volunteers to spend time and meet others.
