  • Description


    Hi everyone!
    We are two parteners David (Ecuador) and Darren (Canada), new managers of the hostel. We are continuing the legacy of the hostel and it is a dream come true to us. I started managing in 2021 and my idea for this hostel is to host travelers all over the world in a relax and friendly environment. I love this place, it's very chill and away from the noise of the town. We host events with live music, sushi nights on Wednesdays, spanish classes online and on-site, surfing lessons by a professional instructor and more.

    Our team is made out of local and kind workers. Our chef Alejandro and a kitchen helper Cristian, will prepare your delicious meals everyday. Also Aida is in charge of the cleaning and keeping the place neat. Teobaldo is our maintenance guy and myself, the manager of the hostel. My staff is known for been cheerful and very helpful with our customers and volunteers. They will be very happy to attend your needs and requests.

    If you or any travellers are interested in joining the my project is more than welcome
