  • Description


    Hola buena gente!

    Our Hostal is in Las Peñitas, León, Nicaragua, home of great waves and beautiful sunsets.
    At the moment volunteers will be helping mainly with: reception, bar tending, cooking and cleaning, taking care of guests, creating art, social media, etc.

    We offer breakfast, lunch and a bed in a dorm, shared with 3 other volunteers. We all cook and clean together. Sometimes we share evening meals together with guests on Family Dinner night.

    After having built for a bit over a year, using mainly recycled electricity poles and other recycled materials we opened our hostel in June 2017. Ever since we keep on experimenting and creating new details to keep the place cosy and vibrating.

    Come with all the positive vibes and the excitement to be part of a beautiful place in front of the beach!
