  • Description


    We are small Hostel located on Ayampe, a little surf village in Ecuador. We started this project 8 years ago with the idea of creating a place that will allow people to disconnect from their normal life, a place to enjoy the encounter with nature, the ocean, the mountain, peace and a joy!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you like the beach life, then you will love Ayampe and our place! Here you will be in contact with people all over the world so you will not only practice languages but experience the felling of having new friends from everywhere. You will enjoy the nature that surrounds us, you will feel how your body changes with this, better air, no traffic, no stress........ Then the local culture is very interesting too... Our town has only 400 people, half of them born in Ayampe so the experience of living on small undeveloped town will make you slow down and enjoy the small but important things in life. The activities around here are yoga, surfing, birdwatching, hiking, swiming, fishing.... and you can get involved in any of our community projects and activities.

  • Help


    Being a hostel needs 24h attention! We are looking for some help in the reception area and general maintenance of the hostel in two shifts during the morning/afternoon. The reception consists on check in and out of guests and helping them out with any needs and advice. The maintenance is checking on common areas to be in order and clean, it also involves some gardening since we love plants and plants needs constant love!
