We are looking for an individual volunteer to live and work with us on our eco hostel. I am English and my wife is Colombian and we have two kids 10 and 12 years old, two cats and two goats. As a family and a business are a very relaxed and friendly but also industrious and hard-working. The hostel is located between San Gil and Barichara and has spectacular views, a natural swimming pool, dry toilets and solar showers.
In exchange for max. 5 hours work, we offer three full meals a day plus accommodation in a comfortable tent with full bedding under a large roof with amazing views.
The work involves cleaning, recycling, making beds, looking after the two goats, serving meals, reception.
We occasionally ask for a bit of flexibility in the hours, for example 2 hours n the morning and three in the evening.
We expect all our volunteers to have a proper working attitude as you would in any other job. We welcome all volunteers into our family and we treat them very fairly and respectfully, but ultimately we are the bosses and as such we expect our workers to do what we ask of them in the best way they can.
