    Description

    Family-owned hostel

    Inti and Luna are brother and sister who were born in a small town called Manizales which is part of the coffee region located in central Colombia. They moved to Canada when they were young. Always having an interest in building, Inti graduated with a degree in Architecture. Luna studied Psychology and Marketing. Combining their passions for traveling, culture and building, they came back to their roots in Colombia and built a hostel in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, on the Caribbean coast.

    After being closed for 1.5 years due to the pandemic, The Hostel will celebrate its reopening in the beginning of July 2021! For this, we are looking for motivated and adventurous volunteers with relevant experience in hospitality operation.

    Your tasks and shifts will depend on what you excel at. We want you to come and feel like you've left your mark on our hostel and its development. We want to hear about your strengths, areas of work, areas of studies and any additional hobbies or interests you have. We are constantly open to new ideas and want our volunteers to voice their suggestions so we can always be growing as a hostel. Since we are still very much in development, volunteer feedback is incredibly important to the success of our hostel.

    On your days off, there are endless activities to do around the hostel. In our free time we like to visit the stunning local beaches and rivers, go hiking with monkeys, and of course the occasional fiesta. You are also free to head out and explore Santa Marta (Colombia's oldest city), Tayrona National Park (just a 20 minute walk), and many other near by towns like Guachaca, Buritaca, and Palamino.

    If you are interested or have any questions, please send us an email.
