  • Description


    Hello there!
    1st We are a small hostel in north Quito´s area arround la carolinas park, beautiful area, secure!. We ARE looking for volunteers. Most duties are related to the reception work. You would learn the booking system and maintain the reservation list, deal with check- ins and check -outs. This type of knowledge would give you an advantage for the future volunteering jobs across South America. Some light housekeeping duties are expected. We maintain friendly atmosphere at the hostel and interaction with guests is necessary to do the job properly. Basic understanding of Spanish is OK and you would have an opportunity to improve your language skills. Longer stay is preferable.

    2nd. I have my own place with 2 (two) kids arround, my first kid is studing in a french school here in Quito so, I am very interested if someone of you can teach my first son something of funny/ playfull French, just talking to him in French and playing would be fine. allright?! You could give me a hand going out to play in the park area with him or to see him at home and always practicing the language.

    1)Somos un hostal en la parte norte de Quito, cerca al centro histórico, requerimos voluntarios para atención a las personas que llegan a buscar alojamiento (clientes), cobros, limpieza, mantenimiento, compras, y algunas veces para que hagan turismo. Es un hostal pequeño de 13 habitaciones así que creo que no es nada pesado de hacer voluntariado aquí. Los jóvenes hacen el voluntariado por turnos, esto puede ser en la noche o en la tarde.

    2) Tengo mi hogar con mis dos hijos en casa y me gustaria que alguno de ustedes, una persona que hable frances, nos heche una mano con los niños. Tendrín que jjugar con ellos y cuidarlos y siempre hablando frances con ellos.

    Como les decía, estamos ubicados en centro norte de Quito en un sector muy bueno, comercial - residencial. Acá encontrarán todo cercano. Que ofrecemos? alojamiento y desayuno. Puedes utilizar la cocina para preparar alimento también y lavandería.

    Quito is breathtaking in more ways than one. Quito is surrounded by natural beauty, by the mountains ringing the city, some volcanic, some with white capped peaks, lushly forested hills and a fertile valley. UNESCO named Quito a cultural heritage site
