  • Description


    We (Edu from Venezuela, Miri from Germany, Joey the doggy from Tenerife) started a climbers and outdoor sports hostel near the beautiful town of Granada in Andalusia, Spain. The hostel itself is in a good state already, now we are renovating our private home on the property and we would love a little help with that.

    We can take you out climbing and teach you a lot about that. And we can also offer language training in Spanish, English or German if you want to train your skills :-)
    We love to have international community dinners here, so you will definitely enjoy new tastes and dishes, you haven´t had before.
    And of course, as soon as travelling is allowed again with the Corona situation, there is the nice possibility to meet people from everywhere and have a nice time with them. Because that`s what we want: create a nice and welcoming space here, for people to stay and share experiences :)

    Maybe the most important reason to come here is Granada and it`s surroundings! It`s a beautiful town with a lot to see and do, and just 20 minutes away from our place.
    Regarding sports activities: there is a lot of climbing around, one sector is just around the corner, and you can do many other outdoor sports around here. Basically everything you can think of. For example hiking and mountainbiking is starting right in front of the house. Also the mediterranean sea is like 1 hour away.

  • Help


    We would welcome somebody who can help us with some renovations to our private home on the hostel property.
    Tasks we would like some help with in the near future:
    - Help to take down some brick/stone walls inside the house
    - rebuilding brick walls inside the house
    - Take off wall covers in some parts (we already started on that) and fix them freshly with cement cover
    - Help to make the bathroom new
    - Help to build a kitchen
    - Maybe help changing the windows to new ones
    - Maybe help with new floors inside the house
    - Make/renew some cement floors in the garden
    - Help to fix the fireplace/bonfire with cement
    - Help to fix broken brick walls in the garden

    You see, there is a lot to do around and we would love to find people who preferrably already have some building knowledge and/or are eager to learn more :)
