  • Description


    ** Social atmosphere // easy helping tasks // join our family and have a home away from home **

    We are a social hostel located in Panajachel, on the shores of the beautiful Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Owned by three Australians and one German, we do our best to show our guests a different, more sociable hostel experience.
    We try to provide information about local cultural events and the different activities around town for our guests to show them the gems of Panajachel nightlife.

    Our Team is more like a family, that's why we prefer to meet all you amazing people face to face before both sides agree on a volunteer position and its duration. We tend to ask for a minimum 4 week commitment but other roles may be available.
