  • Description


    Calling all Workawayers - come and live on the breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean coast of Colombia with us at our Hostel! We are the most exciting and gorgeous new hostel in the area, nestled into the lush Colombian jungle and surrounded by vibrant tropical plant nurseries and jaw-dropping views.


    We're a couple of months away from opening and we need your help to put the finishing touches to our beautiful hostel. We require a range of different skill sets and due to the high number of applicants will be fairly thorough in our selection - we want to make our paradise home as good as it can be! Please be as detailed as you can with your applications and we can't wait to hear from you :)

    Simply put, you'll have the chance to experience true paradise in a way you could never imagine! We live on a part of the coast that has some of the official most beautiful beaches in the world according to National Geographic and they are a stone's throw away from the hostel.

    A few minutes walk away is the entrance to the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Tayrona National Park" which contains kilometers of unimaginably beautiful jungle and coast.

    Minutes away from our hostel is a river that stretches for miles and offers endless adventures like waterfalls, cliff jumping, plunge pools and more.

    Finally, you'll have the chance to contribute to the opening of what is going to be a hostel that takes Colombia by storm. Run by a mother & son with years of experience in providing memorable backpacker experiences, our team will be a close family centered on fun, creativity and an appreciation of nature. You'l have plenty of time to socialise, party and most importantly discover the area.
