We are a very fortunate, young couple living and working in this amazing village called Huanchaco. Huanchaco has a great mix of Peruvian traditional life and tourism. Great climate, great people, great waves. We have opened a small hostel with yoga studio and we are looking for enthusiastic helpers, a receptionist and yoga teacher.
We work with 3 normal volunteers to work in shifts and have a day off after every 2 days of work. We also need one Spanish - and English speaking receptionist working 3 days a week. Besides that we are always looking for certified yoga teachers who can stay with us for some time and get paid for teaching our classes!
Our hostel has good ratings and we currently have 13 nice, spacious rooms and cater to all types of travelers. The hostel is in the best part of Huanchaco, just around the corner from all the fun, but in a quiet street where you can sleep well. We are not a party hostel, but we like to call it; 'a hostel for nice people'. : -) The waves will literally put you to sleep. We have a front balcony and roof terrace that overlooks the sea, a sunny garden with 3 bunnies and a big tortoise that walk around completely free! A big living room and the best communal kitchen in town.
Dani the owner is a certified yoga teacher, but we always work with foreign teachers to teach classes in English. Volunteers can take the yoga classes for free and the studio is open to use freely. The studio is located on the top floor and has sea view, a bamboo roof, good floor and plenty of space.
We might be interested in hosting a baby sitter for our family as well if this interests you!

Helping with Tourists
In Huanchaco you will meet many locals, many tourists and there are plenty of interesting things to do and see in the area. At 'work' you will meet people of all nationalities.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We are working with two shifts which include little physical work. The volunteers will take turns. In the morning/afternoon shift you will make coffee, some sweeping and fixing up the shared kitchen, check if things are ok, opening the door for people. Assist to see who is checking out and change the bed sheets in the rooms. Also this volunteer is responsible for whatever emergency may occur in early morning or if the bell rings.
In the afternoon/evening shift you finish the laundries and have responsibility over the hostel and customer service. You will open door for people, answer questions, extend reservations, deal with late checkouts, call a taxi if needed, communicate with us if something is wrong, checking kitchen/bathrooms if something needs attention, maybe watering plants, feeding bunnies, and finally turning lights off and close the day. : -)
The receptionist will need to commit to a long stay (at least 1,5 to 2 months). Spanish and English are necessary. You will start with two days of reception Sunday and Monday. A third day, possibly Thursday you will assist reception and it can eventually be a normal reception day as well. You will receive a small weekly payment which should be enough to buy all your groceries, availability of surfboard and wetsuit and joining all yoga classes for free! A great opportunity!!
If you are a certified yoga teacher we could offer you to teach with us! We are looking for teachers to teach our classes in English, and stay with us for a while (at least a month). You can earn a decent income, use our surfboards and gain plenty of teaching experience in a comfortable setting! It is also possible to be yoga teacher ánd receptionist!
We offer free stay, joining yoga classes for free, ánd free use of surfboards. We are on an amazing location with the sea (and waves) right in front. You will absolutely lóve it here!
We have a room with two bunk beds we designate to our 4 workers. This is a private room. The yoga teacher will stay in our best 4-person dorm.
Huanchaco is an amazing town with good waves to surf, happy nightlife and very cheap cost of living. And you will be staying in the most beautiful, little hostel in town!
