  • Description


    Hi! We are an Ecuadorian family who opened our hostel three years ago in Latacunga. It's a small town near Quito, it's a beautiful place surrounded by volcanos and beautiful landscapes. People from all over the world come to do tours to Cotopaxi Volcano and Quilotoa lake, and some other activities near the town.

    We are a friendly family who likes to share with people from other cultures. we are looking for volunteers who wants to help us to improve the hostel and some easy activities like reception and cleaning.

    It´s a calm and relax hostel where you can meet travelers from many countries. Also, if you like, you can go out with us and visit many places like Cotopaxi and Quilotoa, and some places in the city.

    Every day in the morning we clean all the hostel like rooms that visitors left, corridors and common areas. Cleaning starts from 8am in the morning until noon.
    Also sometimes we need some help in the reception, that's why we are requiring people who speak english.

    At least but very important, we need your experience as a traveler because we need to keep improving our hostel.
