We are a Hostel and a Cultural Centre.
Tending to the hosts needs with a relaxed enviroment for all, and also organising all kinds of artistic projects to develop and improve the relationship between the public and the artists, is what we do.
We offer a space for artists to teach what they know, or prepare and produce dinamic workshops to exchange information and techniques with others.

Travellers could improve their spanish and work along a crew of people motivated to handle, manage and create a space to develop art. Anyone volunteering here will interact with different expressions of the arts. We also want travelers who are willing to stay a few weeks to offer their own material, intelectual and educational expertise in any field they know, and, to make workshops in our space so they can teach or produce in the process. We hope to learn new skills and abilities volunteers provide in this exchange, and enjoy a wonderful time together.
We need English and Spanish speakers who can help around in the house with cleaning, making beds, laundry, maintenance first, and what we would really like for your stay here (since we also a cultural center), is for you to offer us at least one work of art and a workshop or seminar of your own creation to improve our space and market your personal work and earn money in the process.
For you to do this we ask to make plans in advance with us, so we can coordinate the time, and also post your flyer in our social networks to advertise your workshop.
We offer shared rooms with single beds, showers with hot water, breakfast and lunch and all the accomodations of the house. We have a relaxed environment for us and the hosts.
