We are a hostel and an urban gallery all in one where we permanently have art exhibitions combined with an amazing atmosphere (we are pretty proud of our atmosphere) for all our travelers. We are 5 partners with a vast experience in the hostel world and backpackers ourselves and we want to combine our love for artistic expressions such as design, art, music and extreme sports with our love for travelling in one same place.
We are getting more and more involved with the local and national cultural scene, making contacts with artists and hosting events in which you can help us too. Our downtown location gives us access to a very wide cultural agenda in the city only a few blocks away from our hostel-gallery. We also offer tours within the city and to many locations in the outskirts.

Since our hostel is in the heart of the city, there are art events that are permanently happening just 5 to 10 blocks aways form the hostel. there are also many museums and galleries near the hostel. Street art and performers are just a short walk from the hostel. another great thing we have for cultural exchange is that one of our partners is a language teacher and can offer conversation classes for the volunteeers so they can meet new people in different settings.
we are looking for volunteers that are able to handle a reception desk and speak in english. they must be friendly and outgoing because they will neede to speak to foreigners and offer tours and plans in the city.
The volunteers will also have to take care of the hostel with duties such as taking care of beds and simple tasks around a hostel. we prefer people with native english.
our volunteers will also have to update the booking pages, check and answer mails and social networks and answer the phone. We give our volunteeer speical training on how to handle all the duties. in some ocassion, if neeeded, the volunteeers will have to hand out flyers at specific locations such as airports, bus terminals ETC
the acomodation for the volunteers is a shared room witha very comfortable bed. the house has all the facilities for the guests and volunteers such as kitchen, wifi, refrigeraton, tv room, oven, 5 bathrooms and the gallery so the volunteeers can have a great cultural exchange
transportation is amazing in downtown medellin. volunteers can do many walking tours that are in downtown medellin, they can visit art galleries, many parks that are near and are a center of reunion for mamy students and people in medellin, salsa bars, restaurants. volunteers will also get extra points for being outgoing and offering tours
