  • Description

    Description

    This a hostel and cultural project open to travellers, artists, and locals based around the concept of alternative learning. Our aim is to teach various cultural and holistic practices. We have a yoga and meditation space, an organic garden, bonfire area, tattoo and music studio, cinema and games room and also offer craft workshops at the hostel for guests and locals.
    We have recently set up a café - restaurant in town with art and live music.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are creating a space where people can teach and learn a variety of artistic and cultural practices. From yoga and meditation to arts and crafts, we would like people to partake in whichever practices take their fancy, to further enrich their travelling experience.

  • Help

    Help

    In and around the hostel we need help with:
    - construction work
    - a permaculture garden
    - hostel maintenance
    - welcoming guests
    - website design
    As volunteers will be helping primarily around the hostel, we require a basic understanding of both English and Spanish to make communication as easy as possible, so please only contact us if you have a good understanding of both languages.
    As part of the cultural project we may need skills such as:
    - music
    - painting
    - crafts
    - yoga
    - circus arts
    - permaculture
    - sustainable construction
    - reiki
    - natural medicine
    ... and anything else you have to offer! We are open to constant suggestions and expansion of our project.
    We ask volunteers to help with all kinds of tasks that are needed, these can vary greatly and may be spontaneous.
    We are quite flexible with volunteer hours and hope that in return volunteers can be flexible too. This is a hostel and not a business so not one day is the same and some days more help is needed than others. We offer volunteers the chance to be part of an evolving project at no cost, but ask that you seriously consider whether you have a passion to help out or are just looking for a place for free. This is 'voluntary' work after all. If you share our values and feel you have something to bring to our project then please get in touch! Positive vibes only.

    Accommodation

    We will be able to offer volunteers a bed or tent in the hostel. This includes access to all facilities, including; the kitchen, communal areas, yoga and meditation space and bathrooms. The hostel can get pretty busy at times when we are at full capacity, so we ask that volunteers be mindful of the space we are sharing and help to maintain it clean and tidy for everyone to enjoy.

    Volunteers will have plenty of free time to explore the wonders of Jardin, Antioquia, including;

    - sipping on a 'tinto' in the central square
    ... or simply relaxing in a hammock at the hostel and admiring our pachamama.
