Inspired by travelers and the most beautiful landscapes Nicaragua offers, our hostel opened its doors with the mission of connecting great people with each other, so that together we can create a positive impact on our guests and volunteers through an unforgettable travel experience.
Experience the Nica lifestyle: Feel the breeze sitting on the back of a pick-up truck on the way to hidden beaches; catch the last wave of the day accompanied by a stunning sunset; grab ice-cold beers in one of the local bars; listen to live music at the hostel - these are all things that play a role in your experience of San Juan del Sur, our magical beach town.
At our hostel, we understand the love for travel, but we also understand the importance of once in a while, finding a place that feels like home, and surrounding yourself with people that feel like family. That is why we make sure that everything we offer, from the interactions with the staff to our homemade family dinners and beach parties, are catered to those travelers that not only want a bed in a dorm, but an experience of a lifetime.
We are looking for people that love hanging out with people. The main roles of our volunteers are about creating the vibe for the place. Helping us organizing activities, like karaokes or beach bonfires. Also, volunteers help the local staff with translations during busy times (our local staff is not 100% fluent in English.
We also have spots available for artists!
In exchange, volunteers receive accommodation, breakfast and dinner on a daily basis!
Come home and be part of our family!

Volunteers will have the best of both worlds.
On one side, they will become part of the team of the top rated hostel in San Juan, meeting tons of people from all over the world.
On the other, volunteers will have a chance to have a beautiful experience through our community service programs, where they can play a part in many initiatives that benefit the community and the environment.
