    Description

    We are a new family owned hostel in the beautiful mountain town of Monteverde, Costa Rica. We are looking for enthusiastic, positive and energetic people who would like to be a part in making our hostel the one of the most thriving and successful in this region.

    Our family is friendly and very hospitable. We love to welcome new tourists and volunteers and share with them our traditions, customs and positive attitude towards life. Our typical day starts with preparation of tasty breakfast and good coffee. We are open-minded, communicative and friendly, so we appreciate when we can get to know visitors a little bit better and learn something new and interesting about them or country they are coming from. The day continues with general maintenance and house works. At the reception, we are processing all reservations and do our bests to give tourists all information they could need. We also organize various interesting activities, adventurous tours or transfers.

    Our cozy hostel consists of different types of rooms – mixed dormitories for up to 9 persons and private rooms. There is also an equipped kitchen with nice view on horse yard, spacious common room and terrace where you can watch stunning sunsets. Since we are trying to be ecological as much as possible, we do our bests to recycle our waste, save water, electricity, take care about our green areas and gardens. The whole property, where we have also a nice garden with charming fountain has 2000m2. We have also our own animals and horse, which you can feed and take care of. All visitors are welcomed to ask, have a closer look and get some more information about our animals. :)

    We are still improving our services for tourists and at the moment we are updating our official webpage and reservation systems. So that, we would be glad to welcome volunteers, who are skilled in making and editing photographs and videos. Since you would need to bring your own equipment (camera, drone,…) we would like to offer you, besides accommodation and breakfast, a financial reward, too. We would offer same conditions for skilled gardener, who would like to help us to beautify our garden (no need to bring own equipment). Although finding skilled photographer and gardener is very important for us, we are also still looking for volunteers who would like to help us at the reception, give appropriate information to tourists and process reservations.

    In exchange for your determined volunteer activities we would like to provide you with a free accommodation and breakfast and leave you also plenty of time to explore and experience the nearby attractions.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Since you would stay with us - local family, you can experience everyday life in Costa Rica and enjoy typical meals. Majority of the members of the family speaks only Spanish, so it is perfect opportunity to improve your language skills, too. Besides that, you can gain valuable experience with work at the reception, processing reservation through booking , hostelworld and workaway webpage, customer service and problem solving. The hostel is located in tourist area, so you can broaden your knowledge about how tourism works in Costa Rica. And, of course, you can implement your photographic, gardening and planting skills.

    However, all activities we are offering to our tourists are waiting for you, as well. So get ready to explore beautiful cloud forests during the day or night, experience ziplining, rafting, canyoning, horseback riding and many other activities.
